"In the jungle the quiet jungle, the lion sleeps tonight." While lions, unlike other cats are NOT nocturnal hunters as they depend on sight to hunt, they live on the plains rather then the jungle. The singer' is still in danger of, say a jaguar, since they ARE nocturnal hunters and live in the jungle. I think he was just trying to reassure whoever he was singing to, but the lion is not asleep in the jungle and not a threat. I can't comment on how peaceful the village is. What do you have?
