Lala kahle[Sleep well]
In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight

[Chorus:]
Imbube
Ingonyama ilele[The lion sleeps]
Thula[Hush]

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

[Chorus:]

Ingonyama ilele(The lion sleeps)

Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling
The lion sleeps tonight

He, ha helelemama[He, ha helelemama]
Ohi'mbube[lion]

[Chorus:]

Ixesha lifikile[Time has come]
Lala[Sleep]
Lala kahle[Sleep well]

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

[Chorus:]

My little darling
Don't fear my little darling
My little darling
Don't fear my little darling

Ingonyama ilele[The lion sleeps]
(Repeat to fade)
