Lyrics

The Lion King

Timon:

I can see what's happening.

Pumbaa: (spoken)

What?

Timon:

And they don't have a clue.

Pumbaa: (spoken)

Who?

Timon:

They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line:
Our trio's down to two.

Pumbaa: (spoken)

Oh.

Timon:

Ze sweet caress of twilight.
There's magic everywhere.
And with all this romantic atmosphere,
Disaster's in the air!

Chorus:

Can you feel the love tonight?
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The peace the evening brings.
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
With all its living things.
(Lalela lelando/lelandu we) Hey, listen to this history!

Simba:

So many things to tell her,
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible!
She'd turn away from me.

Nala:

He's holding back, he's hiding.
But what, I can't decide.
Why won't he be the king I know he is,
The king I see inside?

Chorus:

Can you feel the love tonight?
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The peace the evening brings.
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
(Lalela thuli) Listen to this quiet person.
With all its living things.
(Lalela lelando/lelandu we) Hey, listen to this history!
Can you feel the love tonight?
You needn't look too far.
Stealing through the night's uncertainties,
Love is where they are.

Timon:

And if he falls in love tonight,
It can be assumed...

Pumbaa:

His carefree days with us are history.

Timon and Pumbaa:

In short, our pal is doomed!



Elton John version

There's a calm surrender to the rush of day
When the heat of a rolling wind can be turned away
An enchanted moment and it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight?
How it's laid to rest
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

There's a time for everyone if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
There's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
When the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

And can you feel the love tonight?
It is where we are
It's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
That we got this far

And can you feel the love tonight?
How it's laid to rest
It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best

It's enough to make kings and vagabonds
Believe the very best
