Pete Seeger

Peter "Pete" Seeger (born May 3, 1919) is an iconic American folk singer. A fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, he also had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of The Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly's "Goodnight, Irene", which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950. Members of The Weavers were blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. In the 1960s, he re-emerged on the public scene as a prominent singer of protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, and environmental causes. more »

In the jungle, the mighty jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 
In the jungle the quiet jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Near the village the peaceful village 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Near the village the quiet village 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Hush my darling don't fear my darling 
The lion sleeps tonight
