"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 alter-ego, Prince Ali Ababwa. During the song, Genie (Robin Williams) imitates a Thanksgiving Parade commenter. 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. There would later be a reprise in which Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) exposes and banishes Aladdin in his moment of triumph.

This song was included on the tapes Disney Sing Along Songs: Circle of Life, and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All-Time Favorites: The Modern Classics. It was also included in 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
Genie as "Harry": Don't they look lovely, June?
Women: Purple peacocks, he's got fifty-three
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
Harem Girls: There's no question this Ali's alluring.
Never ordinary,
never boring.
Genie: That physique!
How can I speak?
Harem Girls: Everything about that man just plain impresses.
Genie: Weak at the knee!
Well, get on out in that square
Harem Girls: He's a winner,
he's a whiz,
a wonder.
Genie: Adjust your veil and prepare
Harem Girls: He's about to pull my heart asunder.
Genie: To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!
Harem Girls: 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!

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!

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! Ex-Prince, Ali!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!!!!
