Song lyrics to Prince Ali, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman, Performed by Robin Williams in Walt Disney’s Aladdin

Make way for Prince Ali
Say hey! It’s Prince Ali

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

He’s got seventy-five golden camels
Purple peacocks?
He’s got fifty-three
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
That physique! How can I speak?
Weak at the knee
Well, get on out in that square
Adjust your veil and prepare
To gawk and grovel and stare at Prince Ali!

There’s no question this Ali’s alluring
Never ordinary, never boring
Everything about the man just plain impresses
He’s a winner, he’s a whiz, a wonder!
He’s about to pull my heart asunder!
And I absolutely love the way he dresses!

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!
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!

Reprise – sung by Jafar when he has the Genie, as is revealing the true identity of Prince Ali:

Prince Ali
Yes it is he
But not as you know him
Read my lips
And come to grips
With reality.

Yes, meet a blast from your past
Whose lies were too good to last
Say hello to your precious Prince Ali! (turns him back to Aladdin)

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
Is the ends of the Earth! Whee!

So long, ex-prince Ali!
