"Circle Of Life" as written by and Reginald Dwight Elton John....
From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love

Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love

Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

    Song MeaningClearly this song is about the christening and presentation of a new marine vessel. Seriously, did any of you read the lyrics?!

    General CommentI like this song, it's about the circle of life. And about how there's so much on this Earth, we can experience very little of it in our brief life.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song! It humbles the listener, and reminds us that we will not be here forever yet it gives you comfort to know that you are a part of something that will never die.

    General CommentI agree with Esenthiel ! I also agree w/ Misseverus...it is such a great opener and closer to the movie...which in my opinion is the best Disney movie ever! The song and the movie never fail to make me cry.

    General CommentFor Black Hole Sun
    Lion and tiger reference is about how all things are connected, despite how they first seem. Thats the point of the song
