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                    [Ahh...]
But the sun rolling high                                        [...Ahh...]
Through the sapphire sky                                    [...Ahh...]
Keeps great and small on the endless round        [...Ahh]

It's the Circle of Life                     [Wanna tary oh yee haka hay!]
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope            [Ehh...]
Through faith and love                  [...Ehh...]
Till we find our place                    [...Ehh...]
On the path unwinding                  [...Ehh...]
In the Circle                                 [...Ehh...]
The Circle of Life                         [...Ehh, ahh]

Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala

Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala

Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala
Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala
Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala
Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala
Ingwon yama ne gwin amabala
[Repeat chant until end]

It's...
It's the Circle of Life                     [Wanna tary oh yee haka hay!]
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope            [Ehh...]
Through faith and love                  [...Ehh...]
Till we find our place                    [Ahh...]
On the path unwinding                  [...Ahh...]
In the Circle                                 [...Ahh]
The Circle of Life                         [Ahh, Ehh]
