Robert John – The Lion Sleeps Tonight lyrics

We-de-de-de, de-de-de-de-de de, we-um-um-a-way (drum fill)
We-de-de-de, de-de-de-de-de de, we-um-um-a-way

A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh
A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh
A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh
A wimoweh, a-wimoweh a-wimoweh, a wimoweh
In the jungle the mighty jungle the lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle the quiet jungle the lion sleeps tonight

(Repeat Wimoweh chorus--with vocal ad lib similar to the intro in the
Foreground)
Near the village the peaceful village the lion sleeps tonight
Near the village the quiet village the lion sleeps tonight

(Repeat wimoweh chorus)
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling. The lion sleeps tonight.
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling. The lion sleeps tonight

(Repeat wimoweh chorus with vocal ad lib)
