Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee

A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away
A whim away, a whim away

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight
In the jungle, the quiet jungle, the lion sleeps tonight

Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee

Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight
Near the village, the quiet village, the lion sleeps tonight

Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee

Ohh

Hush my darling, don't fear my darling, the lion sleeps tonight
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling, the lion sleeps tonight

Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee
Owhee um bumbawee
