The Lion Sleeps Tonight

This is one of Geni DeClaris Moser’s favorites. What does “a-weema-weh” mean anyway? (Answer at bottom.)

Answer: “A-weema-weh”, also known as “Wimoweh” means “He is a Lion” or “Lion Stop”. The origin is thought to be that of an African hunting song chanted by Zulu warriors whose job it was to protect villages and livestock from lion attacks.
