The Circle of Life

Christa (sicky) this one is for you...

I was walking through the doors to leave work today, saw two young guys sitting on the steps having a smoke, one of them singing very loudly to the absolute top of his voice, ...
"Nants ingonyama bagithi baba..."
and in case you didn't know, those are the words sung by the african choir at the beginning of "The Circle of Life" at the opening of "The Lion King".

I was standing behind the guy as he was blocking my exit down the steps.
He turned around as I was bursting into laughter and stated, "Oh F**k, now I'm embarrassed".
Me still busting up, "No, that was good...ha ha ha!"
Him, "You like that? I'm gonna join The Lion King next season."
Me, "No really, you should...that was great!" as I'm walking past him to my truck.
He to his friend as I'm almost out of ear-shot, "See? someone appreciates my talent..."

Honest to goodness, I thought I was gonna crack up, that guy totally made my drive home, I would think of him every now and then and start laughing all over again. The other drivers on the road looking across at me probably thought I was completely psychotic.

Just picture it...
Young guy...really cute punky looking sort...singing very loudly...not singing the stereotypical young guy hip hop or heavy metal stuff....but singing the african/tribal choir anthem part of the Lion King theme song...now tell me that's not the sort of stuff to make you split a gut??!!
...and you'll laugh too...

That's awesome, I thought I was the only one who loved singing that part of the Lion King. Hope I hear him some day :)
