“Prince Ali” is a song from Aladdin, written by Alan Menken (music) and Howard Ashman (lyrics) sung by the Genie as he introduces the city of Agrabah to Aladdin’s royal alter-ego, Prince Ali Ababwa. During the song, Genie (Robin Williams) imitates a Thanksgiving Parade commentator. A conceived intro of the song and two extra verses in the middle were cut in the film version of the movie. This was one of the last songs written by the late Howard Ashman. There would later be a reprise in which Jafar (Jonathan Freeman) exposes and banishes Aladdin in his moment of triumph.
This song was included on the tapes Disney Sing Along Songs: Circle of Life, and Disney Sing Along Songs: Collection of All-Time Favorites: The Modern Classics. It was also included in the video game Just Dance 2014.
