Ladies and gentlemen
This is a very important message
Don’t mess around with an elephant please.

The industrial revolution has taken the space
Its glories and its wonders you can see in your face
No love, no joy, just a human disgrace
Leaving behind a loosing race, we need love.

I can hear it in the city
I can hear it in the jungle
I can hear it in the wilderness
It’s getting louder and louder
It’s getting louder and louder
And I’m afraid to say, that it sounds
To me, like the drums of death.

So, who are you? Who are you?
Who do you think you are fooling
I say Simbha, Simbhamaheya,
Simbha you can’t kill the lion.

I can smell it in the air
I can see the change of colours
I can feel the change of heat
I can feel it in the water
And I’m afraid to say, it sounds
To me like the drums of death.

But, I say Simbha Simbhamaheya
Simbha you can’t kill the lion.
