Friend Like Me
Friend Like Me is a song by the Genie in the film Aladdin.

Lyrics

Well, Ali Baba had them forty thieves
Scheherezad-ie had a thousand tales
But, master, you in luck 'cause up your sleeves
You got a brand of magic never fails

You got some power in your corner now
Some heavy ammunition in your camp
You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
And I'll say

Mister Aladdin, sir
What will your pleasure be?
Let me take your order
Jot it down
You ain't never had a friend like me

Life is your restaurant
And I'm your maître d’!
C'mon whisper what it is you want
You ain't never had a friend like me

Yes sir, we pride ourselves on service
You're the boss
The king, the shah

Say what you wish
It's yours! True dish
How about a little more Baklava?
Have some of column "A"
Try all of column "B"
I'm in the mood to help you dude
You ain't never had a friend like me

Wah-wah-wah! (Oh my!)
Wah-wah-wah! (No no!)
Wah-wah-wah! (My my my!)
(Scats)

Can your friends do this?
Can your friends do that?
Can your friends pull this out their little hat?
Can your friends go, poof?

Hey, looky here. Ha ha!

Can your friends go, Abracadabra, let 'er rip
And then make the sucker disappear?
So don'tcha sit there slack jawed, buggy eyed
I'm here to answer all your midday prayers
You got me bona fide, certified
You got a genie for your chargé d'affaires
I got a powerful urge to help you out
So whatcha wish? I really wanna know
You got a list that's three miles long, no doubt
Well, all you gotta do is rub like so - and oh

Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
I'm on the job, you big nabob
You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain't never had a friend like me

Ah ha ha!
Wah ha ha!

You ain't never had a friend like me

(Scat fill) Can you give me a "bada-yada-yada"?
(Aladdin repeat)
Good! Scotty-wop
(Aladdin repeat)
Everybody! Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
(Audience repeat)
(Scat fill) Hit it!

Wah-wah-wah! (Oh my!)
Wah-wah-wah! (Oh no!)
Wah-wah wah!

Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves
Scheherazade had a thousand tales
Well master you in luck 'cause up your sleeves
You got a brand of magic never fails

You got some power in your corner now
Some heavy ammunition in your camp
You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
And I'll say

Mister Aladdin, sir
What will your pleasure be?
Let me take your order
Jot it down
You ain't never had a friend like me
No no no

Life is your restaurant
And I'm your maître d'
C'mon whisper what it is you want
You ain't never had a friend like me

Yes sir, we pride ourselves on service
You're the boss
The king, the shah
Say what you wish
It's yours! True dish
How about a little more Baklava?

"There it is! C'mon fellas, help me out!"

Have some of column "A"
Try all of column "B"
I'm in the mood to help you dude
You ain't never had a friend like me

"Now watch me sell it!"

Wah-wah-wah! (Oh my!)
Wah-wah-wah! (Oh no!)
Wah-wah wah!

Can your friends do this?
Can your friends do that?
Can your friends pull this out their little hat?
Can your friends go, poof?
Well, looky here
Can your friends go, abracadabra, let 'er rip
Then make the sucker disappear?

So don't you sit there slack jawed, buggy eyed
I'm here to answer all your midday prayers
You got me bona fide, certified
You got a genie for your chargé d'affaires
I got a powerful urge to help you out
So whatcha wish? I really wanna know
You got a list that's three miles long, no doubt
Well, all you gotta do is rub like so

"Come on! Yes! And oh..."

Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
I'm on the job, you big nabob
You ain't never had a friend like me

Can your friends do this?

"No really... can they? You're welcome!"

"Or maybe, our lucky contestant would like to wish for a talent of fame? Welcome to 'Dancing With The Scimitars'!"

(country music)
Grab old Al by the hand
Swing him 'round 'till he can't stand
Chicken in a basket, sparrow on a tree
Never had a friend like me

(slow piano music)
"I'd like to bring the house down a little bit, sing a few old classics, couple of favorites of mine. I'll get back to you in a second! Thank you!"

(cue Beauty and the Beast")

Tale as old as time

"Thank you, thank you very much."

True as it can be
Barely even friends
Beauty and the...

(cue "Part of Your World" melody)

Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the Genie
Who has everything?

("Under the Sea" intro; then "Colors of the Wind" melody)

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned

("Belle (song)")
I want adventure in the great wide...
Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Though he's sitting here
Watch Al disappear
Right before your eyes, oh

"Yes!"

Can you friends do this?
Can you friends do that?
Can you friends do tap?

Can you friends do this?
Can you friends do that?
Can your friends go abracadabra, let 'er rip?

"Give me a doggy bag; takin' it home!"

Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
I'm on the job, you big nabob
You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
(You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend)
You ain't never
(Never)
Had a
(Had a)
Friend like
(A friend like)
Me
Never had a friend like me

Genie: Well, Ali Baba he had them forty thieves
Scheherezad-ie had a thousand tales
But, master, you in luck 'cause up your sleeves
You got a brand of magic never fails

You got some power in your corner now
Heavy ammunition in your camp
You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
All you gotta do is rub that lamp
But then I'll say

Mister "what's your name", whatever
What will your pleasure be?
Let me take your order
Jot it down
You ain't never had a friend like me

Life is your restaurant
And I'm your maître d’!
C'mon whisper to me whatever it is you want
You ain't never had a friend like me

We pride ourselves on service
You're the boss
The king, the shah

Say what you wish
It's yours! True dish
How about a little more Baklava?
Have some of column "A"
Try all of column "B"
I'm in the mood to help you dude
You ain't never had a friend like me

Can your friends do this?
Can your friends do that?
Can your friends pull this out their little hat?
Can your friends go, poof?

(I'm the genie of the lamp)
(I can sing, rap, dance, if you give a chance)

Don't sit there buggy eyed
I'm here to answer all your midday prayers
You got me bona fide, certified
You got a genie for your chargé d'affaires
I got a powerful urge to help you out
So whatcha wish? I really wanna know
You got a list that's three miles long, no doubt
All you gotta do is rub like so

Mister...
Aladdin: "Aladdin"
Genie: Yes, have a wish or two or three
Well I'm on the job, you big nabob
You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
You ain't never (ever) had a (had a) friend (friend) like me

You ain't never had a friend like me
