“Hakuna Ma’Vodka. It means no memories”

"Hakuna Ma’Vodka. It means no memories for the rest of your day/night” is a jocular line that has been printed on T-shirts. “Hakuna matata” is Swahili for “no worries.” The song “Hakuna Matata” was in the Disney animated movie The Lion King (1995).

“Hakuna some vodka it means no memories” was cited on Twitter on January 18, 2013. “Hakuna mavodka, it means no memories” was cited on Twitter on June 8, 2013.


Wikipedia: Hakuna matata
“Hakuna matata” is a Swahili phrase; translated, it roughly means “No worries”. It is formed by the words hakuna (there is not here) and matata (plural form of problem). The phrase has been popularized by its use in The Lion King (in which it is translated as “no worries” in a song named after the phrase), so that it is heard often at resorts, hotels, and other places appealing to the tourist trade. The phrase is in more common use in Zanzibar and Kenya. The phrase is uncommon among native speakers of Swahili in Tanzania, who prefer the phrase “hamna shida” in the north and “hamna tabu” in the south.

Wikipedia: Hakuna Matata (song)
“Hakuna Matata” is a song from Disney’s 32nd animated feature The Lion King. The song is based on Timon and Pumbaa’s catchphrase in the movie, Hakuna matata, which is a Swahili phrase; it means ‘no worries’. It is characterized by its simple 4/4 time, upbeat message and catchy lyrics.

Music
The musical score was written by Elton John and the lyrics by Tim Rice. In the film the song is sung by Timon (a meerkat voiced by Nathan Lane), Pumbaa (a warthog voiced by Ernie Sabella), and Simba, a young lion voiced by Jason Weaver (singing voice as a cub) and Joseph Williams (as an adult). The two main comedy characters in the film, (Timon and Pumbaa), talk to Simba about moving forward from their troubled pasts and forgetting their worries, and Simba grows from cub to adult as the song progresses.
