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

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]

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

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

Ingonyama ilele[The lion sleeps]
