Song Info

Hakuna Matata is a song sung by Simba, his family, and the Lion Guard to the elephants. It is featured in the episode Bunga and the King.

When lost in Nandembo Caverns, Bunga begins to sing it as a way of cheering himself up. When Simba hears it, he too begins to join in, allowing the pair to find each other in the caverns.

Due to getting lost in the caverns after a sink hole, he misses the elephant concert and he shares a song with them that means a lot to his family.


Hakuna Matata...
What a wonderful phrase!
Hakuna Matata...
Ain't no passin' craze!
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It's our problem free
Simba & Bunga:
Hakuna Matata!


  • At one point, Howy Parkins stated that "we're not doing Hakuna Matata".[1]


Hakuna Matata!

Hakuna Matata!
