"Sure as Sun Turns to Moon" is a song from act one of the musical adaptation of Tarzan. It is sung by Kala and Kerchak, apparently arguing. It is later reprised by Kala after Clayton's defeat and Kerchak's death when Tarzan is asked to take over as the leader, and Tarzan sings a brief reprise of "No Other Way."

Lyrics (Original)

Kala: It's nice to see you play with the children.

Kerchak: Why do you say that?
I do it all the time.

Kala: You don't.

Kerchak: I do.

Kala: You don't.

Kerchak: I don't?

Kala: You don't, you know.
It's nice to see you smiling and laughing.

Kerchak: What do you mean?
I do it all the time.

Kala: You don't.

Kerchak: I do.

Kala: You don't.

Kerchak: I don't.

Kala: No, you don't, you know.

Kala: You're my husband, my friend, our leader
You're the one that I love completely.

Kerchak: I am?

Kala: You are, you know you are.

Kerchak: You can't imagine the weight on my shoulders.

Kala: I know too well how hard it must be.

Kerchak: You don't.

Kala: I do.

Kerchak: You don't.

Kala: Oh, yes, I do, you know.

Kala: You're my husband, my friend, our leader
But a little chink in your armor might be nice.

Kerchak: Really?
Kala: It might be nice.

Both: There was sunshine,
There was family,
There was our life
Side by side.
This was home.

(Kerchak chuckles.)

Kala: Sure as sun turns to moon, well, I love you.

Kerchak: And I will be there to answer your call.

Kala: You will?

Kerchak: I will.

Kala: You really will.

Kerchak: I swear I will.

Kala: It would be nice to see you more often.

Kerchak: Why don't you come back? For I miss you so.

Kala: You do?

Kerchak: I do.

Kala: But you know I can't come back alone.

Lyrics (Reprise)

Kala: Sure as sun turns to moon, you'll be with us.
Always here, protecting us still.
You will.
I know you will.

Kala: You're my husband, my friend, our leader
You're that I love completely.
You are.
You know you are.

Tarzan: There is no other way.
