Make way for Prince Ali
Hey! Clear the way in the old Bazaar
Say hey! It's Prince Ali
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
Prince Ali! Mighty is 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 cotarie
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!
He got 75 golden camels
Prince Ali! Handsome is he, Ali Ababwa!
Purple peacocks, he's got 53
When it comes to exotic-type mammals
Has he got a zoo?
I'm telling you, it's a world class managerie
That physique, how can I speak?
Weak at the knee
Well, get on out on that square
Adjust your veil and prepare
To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali
He's got 95 white Persian monkeys
Prince Ali! Amorous he, Ali Ababwa!
(He's got the monkeys, let 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 with him!)
They bow to his whim, love serving him
They're just lousy with loyalty to Ali! Prince Ali!
Heard your princess was a sight, lovely to see
And that good people, is why,
He got dolled up and dropped by
With 60 elephants, llamas galore
With his bears and lions
A brass band and more
With his 40 fakirs, his cooks, his bakers
His brids that warble on key
Make way to Prince Ali!
