Hakuna Matata - What a Wonderful Phrase!!

Actually, The credit to this post should go to our dear Mr G V Lu!
When i changed my Orkut Profile to 'Aditya - Hakuna Matata' , he sent me a scrap asking what's this. I knew that the meaning of the phrase was 'No Worries', But Mr Lu isn't the kinda person one can just bluff with half-knowledge.
So, i looked it up on Wikipedia - You can do so too!
Actually, Hakuna Matata is a Swahili phrase meaning 'Take no worries' or 'No problem'.
This phrase became popular for the first time in the Awesome Disney Movie - 'The Lion King'.
And when i looked up Wikipedia for the phrase, i found a lot of other interesting things - The song was nominated for Best Song in the Academy Awards and also the Music Composer Elton John and Lyricist Tim Rice picked up Oscars for Best Music and Lyrics respectively!
Also, the song features among the 100 greatest movie songs of all time compiled by the American Film Institute!
Actually, i wanted to put up a link here to some site where you could hear the song in streaming audio. Then, i did one step better - First look at the lyrics and then play the video below!!
Even better if you could sing along - A real soother of a song - No doubt, you'll walk away feeling happier and all smiley :)

Lyrics -
Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata! Ain't no passing craze
It means no worries for the rest of your days
It's our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!
Hakuna Matata?

There's quite a few enjoyable conversations between Timon, Pumba and Simba in the Song too - Watch!!
