Prince Ali

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!
Oh, 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
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 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

He’s got ninety-five white Persian monkeys
And to view them, he charges no fee
He’s got slaves, he’s got servants and flunkies
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!
