"The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as written by and George David Weiss Hugo Peretti....
Wee wee ooh wimoweh
Wee wee ooh wimoweh
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh.
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight,
In the jungle, the quiet jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.
Wee wee ooh wimoweh,
Wee wee ooh wimoweh.
Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight,
Near the village, the quiet village, the lion sleeps tonight.
Wee wee ooh wimoweh.
Rrrrr, wee ooh wimoweh
Intermezzo
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight,
Hush, my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight.
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh,
Owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh, owimoweh.
