From the day we arrive on the planet,And, blinking, step into the sun,There's more to see than can ever be seenMore to do than can ever be done
Some say "Eat or be eaten!"Some say "Live and let live!",But all agree, as they join the stampede:"You should never take more than you give"!
In the circle of life!It's the wheel of fortune...It's the leap of faith...It's the band of hope...'Till we find our placeOn the path unwinding...In the circle...The circle of life...
Some of us fall by the waysideAnd some of us soar to the starsAnd some of us sail through our troublesAnd some have to live with the scars
There's far too much to take in hereMore to find than can ever be foundBut the sun rolling high through the sapphire skyKeeps great and small on the endless round
