Carmen Twillie – Circle of Life Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

By MARTHA LEAH NANGALAMA

One time in 2015, someone in a WhatsApp group I belong to asked me “What TV shows did you used to watch when you were in Uganda?” I replied that I never watched TV in Uganda. Then he got mad at me saying “you cannot be in Canada without ever having watched TV”.
Truth is I grew up in a village. We had no electricity or running water. TV was unheard of. We had radio though.
FAST FORWARD. From Bududa to Victoria BC (Canada) and there was TV. Except, all students used to fight over the remote. Much later, years later, I got my own TV and wanted to soak in everything I had missed that people were telling me was important. DISNEY. I practically grew up on Disney. Imagine that. 
Despite being born and raised in Africa (Uganda and Kenya), I had never seen any animals except when we used to take the train through the Rift Valley. I had never been to a game reserve. I had never been to a zoo. The animals were just part of the backyard or front-yard. Until one day when we went to The African Safari in Ontario (https://lionsafari.com). 
I had never seen African animals up that close. It was a beautiful day. Mother was with us and she had also never seen animals that close that she said “They take animals from Africa and then us Africans have to come here to see our animals!!”
Anyway, it was a fantabulous day. Then we returned to Toronto to watch DISNEY. Call it lame but it is not like we have to hunt for food anymore!!!

Elton John – CIRCLE OF LIFE

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
Some say, “Eat or be eaten”
Some say, “Live and let live”
But all are agreed 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
‘Til we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life
Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
In the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
‘Til we find our place
On the path unwinding, yeah
In the circle, the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune, yeah
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
‘Til we find our place
On the path unwinding, yeah
In the circle, the circle of life
On the path unwinding, yeah
In the circle, the circle of life
