Prince Ali – Aladdin


    Writers: Alan Menken and Howard Ashman


    Make way for Prince Ali
    Say hey, it’s Prince Ali

    Hey, clear the way in the old Bazaar
    Hey, you, let us through
    It’s a brand new star
    Oh, come!
    Be the first on your block to meet his eye

    Make way, here he comes
    Ring bells! Bang the drums!
    You’re gonna love this guy

    Prince Ali! Fabulous he, Ali Ababwa
    Show some respect
    Boy, genuflect!
    Down on one knee
    Now try your best to stay calm
    Brush up your Friday salaam
    Then come and meet his spectacular coterie!

    Prince Ali! Mighty is he, Ali Ababwa
    Strong as ten regular men, definitely
    He’s faced the galloping hordes
    A hundred bad guys with swords
    Who sent those goons to their lords?
    Why, Prince Ali

    Fellas, he’s got
    He’s got seventy-five golden camels
    Woo, uh, huh, now the ladies, what he got?
    Purple peacocks, he’s got fifty-three
    Uh, huh, uh, huh, uh, huh
    When it comes to exotic-type mammals
    Everybody, help me out!
    He’s got a zoo
    I’m telling you, it’s a world-class menagerie

    Prince Ali! Handsome is he, Ali Ababwa
    That physique! How can I speak
    Weak in my knees (yummy, boy!)
    So get on out in that square
    Adjust your veil and prepare
    To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali

    He’s got ninety-five white Persian monkeys
    (He’s got the monkeys, a bunch of monkeys)
    And to view them he charges no fee
    (He’s generous, so generous)
    He’s got ten thousand servants and flunkies
    (Proud to work for him)
    They bow to his whim, love serving him
    They’re just lousy with loyalty to Ali!
    Prince Ali!

    Prince A-
    We’re waiting for you! We’re not going till you go
    You can do it! There it is!

    Prince Ali! Amorous he, Ali Ababwa
    Heard your princess was hot! Where is she?
    And that, good people, is why
    He got all cute and dropped by
    With sixty elephants, llamas galore
    (For real?)
    With his bears and lions
    A brass band and more
    With his forty fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
    His birds that warble on key
    Make way
    For Prince Ali!
