    1952 Yma Sumac.
    You've caught me on other, but THAT isn't the original of this either. The original was written in the Zulu language and first recorded in...


    ...wait for it...


    ...1939. 13 years previous to Yma Sumac's version. Originally titled Mbubu ("Lion" in Zulu)

    Enjoy.

    ...also the first "modern" version of the track was by The Weavers, in 1952 (Same year as Sumac's version, but earlier). The band themselves thought it was a traditional Zulu song, but their management knew different and had secretly reached an agreement with the South African record company that had released the 1939 original but without paying Solomon. Solomon Linda, who wrote it, recieved a payment of $1000 after the band found out and insisted he was properly paid. That was a LOT of money for a black South African in 1952. However, later versions did try and get out of paying the copyright, especially when Disney used it for the Lion King, although agreement was finally reached with his estate to make sure proper royalties were paid.

    Here's The Weavers version.

    Fucking hell, I'm making a complete balls of this. I meant "best known for the version by Whitney Houston".

    Please excuse me, I've just had the working week from Hell.

    In relation to Dolly Parton, you could say that it's all gone "tits up".
