HAKUNA MATATA

Can't worry about tomorrow
It is yet to come
No need to dwell on yesterday
For it has come and gone
No need to sweat the small stuff
Life really is too short
Live for each precious moment
Give it all you got
Life is full of challenge
With many ups and downs
Hakuna matata
Can fill your days with laughter
At times can bring on frowns
Don't put off until tomorrow
What you can do today
Hakuna matata
The past now lies behind us
Another time and place
Put aside your anger
Replace it with a smile
Stop to smell the roses
Fill your heart with song
Yesterday gone forever
Tomorrow not yet here
Live for today with gusto
It's you that holds the key
Hakuna matata
It means no worries
Forget about your failures
Your best is yet to come
Hakuna matata!
