For Prince Ali!
It's Prince Ali!"
Hey clear the way in the ol' 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!
Ah! 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 off 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
(Don't they look lovely June?)
Purple peacocks he's got fifty-three!
(Fabulous Harry, I love the feathers)
When it comes to exotic type mammals...
Has he gotta zoo-
I'm tellin' you!
It's a world class menagerie!
Prince Ali - handsome as 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!
He's got ninety-five white Persian monkeys
He's got the monkeys!
Lets 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
Prince Ali - glamorous 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
With his bears and lions
A brass band and more!
With forty fakirs, his cooks and bakers
And birds that warble on key!
For Prince Ali!
