The Lion Explained.

I found this last night:

It has some nice shots of animals, including several which, rather implausibly, make lions look like cute little tabby kittens (and even one of an elephant defecating.)

I was always confused about the line ‘In the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight’ until I read that the original African folk song from which this is adapted is a Zulu song about the death of King Shaka. He’s the lion, you see. Get it?
