Do you hear the voices in the wind?
They carry messages our ears will hear
Tranquil in the deliverance of them
They tell of one basic truth
Where is the king to be found?
And how we prosper under his name
We raise our voices aloud
And pronounce his great kingdom
He himself has mastered the ways
He has trained us in his wisdom
And delivered us from ourselves
Even the wind changes at his command
Who but Simba has learned?
And taught his life to us
Mufasa taught many inspirational things
And bestowed in Simba the truth
Trials of might and sorrow filled
Special traits possessed by them
To help them get through those days
And leave us a trail in his example
Consider every word you say
He has heard them all before
Settling in his rightist mind
To bring what he’s learned to Earth.
