MARCHERS: Make way for Prince Ali!
SWORDSMEN: Say hey! It's Prince Ali!
MAJOR: Hey, clear the way in the old bazaar,
Hey you, let us through, it's a bright new star,
Now come, be the first on your block to meet his eye!
Make way, here he comes,
Ring bells, bang the drums.
You're 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
And 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!
CHORUS OF MEN: He's got seventy-five golden camels!
HARRY: Don't they look lovely, June?
CHORUS OF WOMEN: Purple peacocks, he's got fifty-three!
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!
GIRLS: (in couterpoint)
Prince Ali, Handsome is he, Ali Ababwa
There's no question this Ali's alluring
That physique, how can I speak
Never ordinary, never boring
Weak at the knee
Everything about the man just plain impresses
Well, get on out in that square
He's a wonder, 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!
(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!
GENIE: Prince Ali!
Amorous he! Ali Ababwa
Heard your princess was a sight lovely to see!
And that,good people, is why
He got dolled up and dropped by
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!
