Preceded by "I'm Looking Out for Me"
Followed by "Forget About Love"
"Nothing in the World (Quite Like a Friend)" is a song sung by Genie (Dan Castellaneta) when he returns to Agrabah and then Aladdin and Jasmine in The Return of Jafar.

This is the only song from The Return of Jafar that is not included on the Aladdin and the King of Thieves soundtrack album; this is likely due to the song being sung by Dan Castellaneta rather than Genie's original voice, Robin Williams.


Genie: I parachuted down into the Taj Mahal

I roller-bladed all along the great Great Wall!
I even made the famous Leaning Tower fall,
But who was with me through it all?
The Moscow Circus hired me to fly trapeze
On Mount Olympus won a race with Hercules
It's easy when you're chased by killer bees
Who said "Gesundheit" when I sneezed'''


''So now I'm home''
''Home again with you''
''You chase the clouds away''
''Whenever I am blue''
''And the pyramids I highly recommend''
''There is nothing in the world quite like a friend''

''Slept like a babe in Bombay on a bed of nail''
''Moroccans loved my daring dance of seven veils''
''Why, single-handedly I even saved the whales''
''No one was there to hear my tales! (crying)''
''In Acapulco joined a Mariachi band''
''I rode the ragin' rapids down the Rio Grande''
''Flew in an air balloon, but when I tried to land''
''Nobody laughed, or lent a hand''

''Without you, the Amazon is just a trickle''
''Without you, the Sahara's not so hot''
''Without you, Niagara Falls is just a leaky faucet''
''And the QEII is just some yacht''

''Now that I'm home,''
''Home again, it's clear,''
''All I ever wanted''
''Seems to be right here''
''I've traveled East and West''
''And now, I'm back again''
''And there's nothing in the world quite like a friend''

'''[[Aladdin (character)|Aladdin]]''': ''There's nothing in the world''
'''[[Jasmine]]''': ''Nothing in the whole wide world''
'''All''': ''There is nothing in the world quite like a friend''
'''Genie''': ''Nothin' in the whole wide world''
