Aladdin - Prince Ali High Quality

"Prince Ali" is a song from Aladdin, written by Alan Menken (music) and Howard Ashman (lyrics) sung by the Genie as he introduces the city of Agrabah to Aladdin's royal ego, Prince Ali Ababwa. During the song, Genie (Robin Williams) imitates a Thanksgiving Parade commentor by saying "Don't they look lovely, June". A conceived intro of the song and two extra verses in the middle were cut in the film version of the movie. This was one of the last songs written by the late Howard Ashman.

This song was included on the tape Disney Sing-Along Songs: Circle of Life and the video game Just Dance 2014.

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

[Speech]
Genie as "Harry": Don't they look lovely, June?

Women: Purple peacocks, he's got fifty-three

[Speech]
Genie as "June": Fabulous, Harry. I love the feathers.

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

Prince Ali!
Handsome is he,
Ali Ababwa

Women: There's no question this Ali's alluring
Never ordinary,
never boring

Genie: That physique!
How can I speak?

Women: Everything about that man just plain impresses.

Genie: Weak at the knee!

Well, get on out in that square

Women: He's a winner,
he's a whiz,
a wonder

Genie: Adjust your veil and prepare

Women: He's about to pull my heart asunder.

Genie: To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!

Women: And I absolutely love the way he dresses.

Chorus: He's got ninety-five white Persian monkeys.

Men: 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, his bakers
His birds that warble on key
Make way

For Prince Ali!
