Shh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

he’s stretched out reclined in his den

but with one shout you’ll find him awake again

his eyes will open slowly like a shade

to reveal his large golden eyes glistening beneath his mane

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

although he might look like a cuddly friend

he’s the king of the jungle and he’ll make sure you know it

with a single pounce he can jump over 10 feet

and there before our eyes the lion will be

our feet are not fast enough to outrun his

and if it was a race, well the lion would win

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

all around him his pride is sleeping

but with his orders you’ll find them creeping

seeking a prey for their dinner to be

when the lion awakes he’ll be alert and hungry

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt
