Lyrics

Chorus: Make way for Prince Ali!
Say hey! It's Prince Ali!

Genie: Hey! Clear the way in the old Bazaar
Hey you! Let us through! It's a bright new star!
Oh come! Be the first on your block to meet his eye!
Make way! Here he comes!
Ring bells! Bang the drums!
Are you gonna love this guy!

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

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

Men: He's got seventy-five golden camels
Genie: Don't they look lovely, June?
Women: Purple peacocks, he's got fifty-three
Genie: Fabulous, Harry. I love the feathers
When it comes to exotic-type mammals
Has he got a zoo!
I'm telling you,
Chorus: it's a world-class menagerie

Prince Ali! Handsome is he,
(Harem Girls: There's no question this Ali's alluring.)
Ali Ababwa
(Never ordinary, never boring.)
That physique! How can I speak?
(Everything about that man)
Weak at the knee!
(Just plain impresses.)
Well, get on out in that square
(He's a winner, he's a whiz, a wonder.)
Adjust your veil and prepare
(He's about to pull my heart asunder.)
To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!
(And I absolutely love the way he dresses!)

Chorus: He's got ninety-five white Persian monkeys
Guards: He's got the monkeys,
let's see the monkeys
Chorus: And to view them he charges no fee
Women: He's generous, so generous
Chorus: He's got slaves,
he's got 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!

All: Prince Ali! Amorous he!
Ali Ababwa
Genie: Heard your princess was a sight lovely to see
And that, good people, is why,
He got dolled up and dropped by

Chorus: With sixty elephants,
llamas galore
With his bears and lions
A brass band and more
With his forty fakirs,
his cooks and bakers
His birds that warble on key
Make way
For Prince Ali!

Jafar: Prince Ali
Yes, it is he
But not as you know him!
Read my lips
And come to grips
With the reality
Yes, meet a blast from your past,
Whose lies were too good to last!
Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!

Iago: Or should we say Aladdin?

Jasmine: Ali?

Aladdin: Jasmine, I-I tried to tell you. I'm just a...

Jafar: So Ali
Turns out to be
Merely Aladdin!
Just a con
Need I go on?
Take it from me
His personality flaws,
Give me adequate cause,

To send him packing on a one-way trip
So his prospects take a terminal dip!
His assets frozen!
The venue chosen!
It's the ends of the earth! Whoopee!
So long!

Iago: Goodbye, See ya!

Jafar: Ex-Prince, Ali!

Kassim:Hail, your attention I crave
Oh ye people of Agrabah
This is your lucky day

Hail, high and low, great and small
Lucky people of Agrabah,
Someone's coming to call
(Take it away Babkak)

Babkak: Someone who tamed the cyclops
Then fought forty thieves single handed
He's richer than Krisos
Omar: He goes where he pleases
Kassim: And this time he's chosen your land

Oh, oh-woah
Your land
Uh come on!
(Nobody's coming)

Babkak, Omar & Kassim:So here he is now with his band!

Dancers: Make way for Prince Ali
Say hey, hey, hey!
It's Prince Ali

Genie: Hey! Clear the way in the old Bazaar
Hey you, let us through!
It's a bright new star, oh
Come be first on your block
To meet his eye!

Make way,
Here he comes!
Ring bells! Bang the drums!
Are you gonna love this guy!
Make way! (Make way)
Make way! (Make way)
Make way!

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

Prince Ali!
Mighty is he!
Ali Ababwa
Strong as ten regular men, definitely!
(That's right boys)
He once slew seventy Turks,
Mustaches, Sabres, real jerks!
Who gave those bad guys the works?
Why, Prince Ali!
(Yes he did!)
Prince, prince Ali
Prince Ali
Prince, prince Ali
Prince Ali!

Female Singer: He's got seventy-five golden camels (sing it mama!)
Purple peacocks He's got fifty-three

Genie: When it comes to exotic-type mammals
Has he got a zoo? I'm telling you
It's a world-class menagerie

Wow!
Prince Ali, wonderful he,
Ali Ababwa
He's essayed quite a parade
For you to see (he's essayed a parade)
So get on out in that street
Got someone I wantcha to meet
Come one start kissing the feet
Of prince Ali!

Say hey, hey!
Hey, hey!
Hey to prince Ali!
(One more time!)
Say hey, hey!
Hey, hey!
Hey to prince Ali!

Ba-badabada
(Sounding good fellas)
Ba-badabada
(Hit me one more time)
Ba-badabada
[Over the top] There's no question this Ali's impressive
Ba-badabada
Though, his entourage might be excessive
Ba-badabada
All those elephants at once can quite unnerve one
Ba-badabada
Still, the man gives a parade new meaning
And the sight of all those peacocks preening
He's a prince without a peer
And we deserve one!

There's no question this Ali's alluring (Prince Ali, handsome is he)
Never ordinary! Never boring! (Ali Ababwa)
Everything about the man just plain impresses. (That physique! How can I speak?)
(I'm weak at the knee)
He's a winner, he's a wiz, a wonder! (Well get on out in that square)
He's about to put my heart asunder, (Adjust your veil and prepare)
And I absolutely love the way he dresses. (To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!)

He's got ninety-five white Persian monkeys
(He's got the monkeys, let's see the monkeys)
And to view them he charges no fee
(He's generous, so generous)
He's got slaves, he's got 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 Ali!
Amorous he!
Ali Ababwa
Heard your princess was a sight (ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Lovely to see
And that, good people, is why
He got dolled up and dropped by

Chorus: With sixty elephants, llamas galore
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...
Prince Ali!

Say hey to prince Ali! (Prince Ali)
Say hey, hey, hey to prince Ali!
Badabadaba bow!
Badabadaba ba ba ba badow!
