LYRICS and TIME used to find the song on the link.
"Circle of Life" Go to 2:10-2:55 in link
It's the circle of life, And it moves us all
Through despair and hope; Through faith and love
Till we find our place on the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life.
"I Just Can't Wait to be King" Go to 7:52-8:22 in link
I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!
I've never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair.
I'm gonna be the mane event like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down, I'm working on my roar
Thus far a rather uninspiring thing...Oh, I just can't wait to be king!
"Be Prepared" Go to 11:57-12:28 in link
Let's prepare for a chance of a lifetime, be prepared for sensational news.
A shining new era is tiptoeing nearer
(And where do we feature?)
Just listen to teacher
I know it sounds sordid, but you'll be rewarded
When at last I am given my dues!
And injustice deliciously squared...Be prepared!
"Hakuna Matata" Go to 23:45-24-15 in link
Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy, Hakuna Matata!
"Can You Feel the Love Tonight" Go to 32:40-33:27
Can you feel the love tonight, the peace the evening brings the world
The world, for once, in perfect harmony with all it's living things ...
Can you feel the love tonight, you needn't look too far
Stealing through the night's uncertainties, love is where we are.
