Watch a Florida Hotel Wake Up Spring Breakers with 'Circle of Life'

"Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba. Sithi uhm ingonyama."

Those, in case you were wondering, are the actual lyrics to "Circle of Life," from The Lion King. And for the residents of the Panama City Beach Holiday Inn in Florida, they know that now. At this point, how could they not?

You see, this particular Holiday Inn has been playing "Circle of Life" every day at 11 a.m. during spring break, as a sort of wake-up call for the hundreds of vacationing students staying there.

It's unclear whether the hotel means to use the soundtrack as a punishment or a celebration. We guess that depends on exactly what you're trying to sleep off.

But employees told Los Angeles Fox affiliate KTTV that they have "hundreds of people" calling each year to ensure that the tradition hasn't gone away, and the station spoke to at least one guest, Jessica Young, who described the daily ritual as "the best thing ever."

"Every morning when we wake up we look forward to it," Young continued, presumably without irony. "It's like an entire Panama City Beach Holiday Inn family just singing together."
