Baltimore Orioles Honor 3B Manny Machado with 'Hakuna Machado' Video

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 5, 2013

The Baltimore Orioles paid their respects to promising young third baseman Manny Machado with a Lion King tribute song, and it's pretty impressive. To be honest, we're surprised it took this long for someone to make this connection.

Here are the lyrics: 

Hakuna Machado, what a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Machado, it’s the latest craze
It means no errors at third whenever he plays
The fans all come to see
His hitting spree
Hakuna Machado

It means no errors at third whenever he plays
He’s got a Ph. D. in Webgemology
Hakuna Machado

(Tommy Hunter Solo:)
He’s got little itty bitty ears
Hakuna Machado
