Arabian Nights - James Monroe Iglehart feat. The Original Broadway Cast of Aladdin

Salam and Good Evening to you worthy friends
Welcome to the fabled city of Agrabah!
City of flying carpets, soaring heroes,
Famous love ballots and more glitz and glamour
Then any other fictional city in the World!

Oh I come from a land, from a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where it's flat and immense
And the heat is intense
It's barbaric, but Hey!, it's Home

When the wind's from the east
And the sun's from the west
And the sand in the glass is right
Come on down, stop on by
Hop a Carpet and fly
To another Arabian Night

And of course, you know what Arabah's famous for?
This Magical lamp
Don't be fooled by its "commonplace" appearance
Like so many things, it is not what's on the outside,
But what's on the inside that counts.
Wow, got a little deep there down for a second .Heh
This lamp put Agrabah on the map
You've never been?
Well... we can fix that!

Follow me to a place
Where incredible feats
Are routine every hour or so
Where enchantment runs rampant
It's wild in the streets
Open Sesame, here we go.

See the dervishes dance
In ridiculous pants
Then romance to your heart's delight.
Come on down
Come on, in.

Let the magic begin,
It's another Arabian Night
Arabian Nights...
Like Arabian Days...
More often than naught
Are hotter than hot!
In a lot of good ways.

Arabian Nights...
'Neath Arabian moons...
A fool off his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes.

In that magical place
In that mystical land
There's a Genie inside every door
He'll do all your bidding
Your wish, his command.

It's demeaning, but hey there you are.
Unbelievable, yes
An unethical mess
Nonetheless, no one's very contrived
Do come here anew
Come to a land where any mountain can move
A land of high and treat with tricky logistics
Like prophets and Mystics

And I've got statistics to prove!

Arabian Nights
Arabian Nights

Come for the hummus
Stay for the fore-show
Even the poor people
Look fabulous!
And everyone here has a minor in dance.
And now, for the softer side of Agrabah...

Arabian Nights...
Arabian Nights!

And of course, you must watch
Your step here in Agrabah.
For danger lurks around
Every corner and ugly bad guys too!

Arabian Nights!

It's a city where a pitiless nobody
Can turn out to be...
A noble somebody.

Arabian Nights!

It's a place were a princess
Would give up her crown for true love,
But her father, the Sultan, is a stickler
For the Ancient ways.

And our hero's pals are as
Thick as thieves. 'Adorable'...But thieves
Oh! and did I mention...
Everybody SINGS!

Arabian Nights
Like Arabian Days
More often than naught
Are hotter than hot!
In a lot of good ways!

Arabian Nights
'Neath Arabian moons
A fool off his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes.

Arabian Nights...
Arabian Nights...
Arabian Nights...
Arabian Nights...
Arabian Nights...
