The lyrics to the "Circle of Life" are incredibly plain!

It's one of the most iconic songs in the Disney repertoire. The opening sequence for the movie "The Lion King" is still breathtakingly beautiful and some of the best animation ever created. However, if you translate the opening lyrics from Swahili to English, you might be surprised at how plain and simple they are. They go like this: 
Nants ingonyama bagithi baba (There comes a lion, Father)
Sithi uhhmm ingonyama (Oh yes, it's a lion)
