"The Lion Sleeps Tonight" as written by and George David Weiss Hugo Peretti....
They let the family say

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight

Near the village, the peaceful village
The lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the quiet village
The lion sleeps tonight

But we'll sing it when we say, oh yeah
Let us play

Now hear me
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight, hey, whoa

Ooh, yeah, the lion sleeps tonight
Say the lion sleeps tonight
Say the lion, say the lion, say the lion sleeps tonight
Say the lion, say the lion, say the lion, oh yeah
Sleeps tonight
