Script and Lyrics

  • (We open this music video with Kevin Keene reading it)
  • Kevin Keene: And now, it's time for Disney songs on YTV, the part of the show where my friends and I come out and sing a Disney Song. We find Ash, as he is quietly walking along the hallways when...
  • Serena: Aw, look at that little girl!
  • Molly: Her name is Fauna Walker and she is 5-years-old.
  • Bloom: Cool!
  • Ash: (scheme-fully) Now, for my plan!
  • Sam: That little girl's been a good family for Mr. and Mrs. Walker.
  • Tai: Girls, look! Ash is out to...
  • Ash: SURPRISE!!!!
  • (He blows his two air horns at everyone, causing Fauna to fall to the floor, break her head and then burst out in tears)
  • Serena: YOW! MY EARS!
  • Molly: They hurt!
  • Bloom: Somebody make her stop!
  • Sam: You're getting us in great agony!
  • Tai: Enough with the tantrum already!
  • Ash: (laughs triumphantly) I'm number one!
  • (But Chief Pulse grabs him by the back and places him aside)
  • Chief Pulse: You're responsible for this, Ketchum!
  • Ash: No way! I didn't do it! Unlike all the other pranks I told you I didn't do, which I did!
  • Chief Pulse: Ash, I am sick of your stupid excuses. You are officially expelled from the Cartoon University!
  • (Ash is left in a speechless state of shock)
  • (Later, he is heading his way back home with guilt)
  • Ash: I can't believe she banned me for contempt! It's not the same!
  • (Then, Rebecca Norman and Daniela Lamar appear)
  • Rebecca: Ash, what's got into you?
  • Ash: It's Chief Pulse, she banned me from the Cartoon University!
  • Daniela: Aw, don't worry, kid. This song will cheer you up.
  • (They both perform Hakuna Matata, with Rebecca leading off)
  • Rebecca: Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful phrase!
  • Daniela: Hakuna Matata, ain't no passing craze.
  • Rebecca: It means no worries for the rest of your days.
  • Rebecca and Daniela: It's our problem-free philosophy.
  • Rebecca: Hakuna Matata!
  • (Instrumental Bridge)
  • Rebecca: Why, when she was a young girl...
  • Daniela: When I was a young girl!
  • Rebecca: (rubbing her ear) Very nice.
  • Daniela: Thanks.
  • Rebecca: She found her aroma lacked a certain appeal She could clear the Savannah after every meal.
  • Daniela: I am a sensitive soul Though I seem thick-skinned And it hurt that my friends never stood downwind And oh, the shame!
  • Rebecca: She was ashamed!
  • Daniela: the change of my name meant!
  • Rebecca: Oh, what's in a name!
  • Daniela: And I have crushed
  • Rebecca: How did you feel?
  • Daniela: Every time I ...
  • Rebecca: Hey, Daniela! Not in front of the kids!
  • Daniela: Oh, sorry.
  • Rebecca and Daniela: Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase! Hakuna Matata, ain't no passing craze.
  • Ash: It means no worries for the rest of your days.
  • Rebecca: Yeah, sing, child!
  • Rebecca and Ash: It's our problem-free ...
  • Daniela: philosophy!
  • All: Hakuna Matata!
  • (Instrumental Bridge)
  • Rebecca and Daniela: Hakuna! Matata! (3x) Hakuna ...
  • Ash: It means no worries for the rest of your days.
  • All: It's our problem-free philosophy.
  • Rebecca: Hakuna Matata
  • Daniela: Hakuna Matata
  • Ash: Hakuna Matata ...
  • (Hakuna Matata song ends)
