help!! can someone translate; A-weema-weh?
Oops, tomorrow I will be working with the song ´The lion sleeps tonight ´ and I suddenly realized the students might ask me what "a-Weemah-weh" means.
Needless to say I have no idea.  If any of you have any idea, I would be more than grateful. It doesn ´t really fit me to leave something like this to the last minute....

I ´ve found this in the net: "Coming from Africa, it ´s "a mishearing of the original song ´s chorus of ´uyimbube ´ (meaning "you ´re a lion")."
