What a wonderful phrase! How many of us use this phrase in conversation? And probably even more of you are humming the tune right now. This catchy tune from the Lion King tells us “No Worries!” And, in this writer’s opinion, it’s even better than Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy.” Written by Sir Elton John, this song was nominated for the Best Song Academy Award but lost out to Can You Feel The Love Tonight (also from Lion King). It did rank among the American Film Institute’s top 100 songs for 100 years of films at number 99.
