Bb                            Cm    
From the day we arrive on the planet
F                           Bb 
And blinking, step into the sun
Gm                                  Cm 
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
        Ab                 F 
More to do than can ever be done
Bb                Cm    
Some say eat or be eaten
F                      Bb 
Some say live and let live
Gm                           Cm 
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
            Ab                      F 
You should never take more than you give
                 Bb   Eb 
In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
                   Bb    G 
Till we find our place
                  Cm   Gb 
On the path unwinding
        Bb   F               Eb Gb Bb 
In the circle, the circle of life
Bb                    Cm    
Some of us fall by the wayside
F                        Bb 
And some of soar to the stars
Gm                                Cm 
And some of us sail through our troubles
     Ab                        F 
And some have to live with the scars
Bb                             Cm    
There's far too much to take in here
F                              Bb 
More to find than can ever be found
Gm                                     Cm 
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Ab                                   F 
Keeps great and small on the endless round
