Oh l Come from a land,

From a faraWay plaCe

Where the Caravan Camels roam

Where it's flat and immense

And the heat is intense

lt'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

Arabian nights

Like Arabian days

More often than not

Are hotter than hot

ln 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

Salaam and good evening to you,

worthy friend.

Please come closer.

Too close. A little too close.


Welcome to Agrabah.

City of mystery.

Of enchantment.

And the finest merchandise this side

of the river Jordan. Come on down.

Look at this. Combination hookah

and coffee maker.

Also makes julienne fries.

Will not break.

lt broke.

Look at this. l have never seen

one of these intact before.

This is the famous

Dead Sea Tupperware. Listen.

Still good.

Wait, don't go!

l can see you're only interested

in the exceptionally rare.

l think, then, you would be

most rewarded to consider this.

Do not be fooled

by its commonplace appearance.

Like so many things,

it is not what is outside,

but what is inside that counts.

This is no ordinary lamp.

lt once changed the course

of a young man's life.

A young man who, like this lamp,

was more than what he seemed.

A diamond in the rough.

Perhaps you would like

to hear the tale?

lt begins on a dark night.

Where a dark man waits

with a dark purpose.

You are late.

A thousand apologies, oh patient one.

- You have it, then?

- l had to slit a few throats.

But l got it.

The treasure.

Trust me, my pungent friend.

You'll get what's coming to you.

What's coming to you.

Quickly, follow the trail.


At last, after all

my years of searching.

The cave of wonders.

Cave of wonders.

By Allah.

Now, remember.

Bring me the lamp.

The rest of the treasure is yours,

but the lamp is mine.

The lamp. The lamp.

Jeez, where'd you dig this bozo up?

Who disturbs my slumber?

lt is l. Gazeem.

A humble thief.

Know this. Only one may enter here.

One whose worth lies far within.

The diamond in the rough.

What are you waiting for? Go on.


Seek thee out

the diamond in the rough.

l can't believe it.

l just don't believe it.

We're never going to get ahold

of that stupid lamp.

Just forget it.

Look at this.

l'm so ticked off that l'm molting.

Patience, lago. Patience.

Gazeem was obviously less than worthy.

There's a big surprise.

l think l'm gonna have a heart attack

and die from that surprise.

What are we going to do?

We got a big problem here, a big...


Only one may enter.

l must find this one,

this diamond in the rough.

Stop, thief!

l'll have your hands

for a trophy, street rat.

All this for a loaf of bread?

- There he is.

- You won't get away so easy.

You think that was easy?

You two, over that way.

And you, follow me. We'll find him.

- Morning, ladies.

- Getting into trouble early today,

aren't we, Aladdin?

Trouble? No way.

You're only in trouble

if you get caught.

- Gotcha.

- l'm in trouble.

And this time...

Perfect timing, Abu.

As usual.

Let's get outta here.

Got to keep one jump

Ahead of the bread line

One sWing ahead of the sWord

l steal only What l Can't afford

That's everything.

One jump ahead of the laWmen

That's all, and that's no joke

These guys don't appreCiate l'm broke

- Riffraff

- Street rat

- SCoundrel

- Take that

Just a little snaCk, guys

Rip him open, take it baCk, guys

l Can take a hint

Got to faCe the faCts

- You're my only friend, Abu

- Who?

Oh, it's sad Aladdin's hit the bottom

He's beCome a one-man rise in Crime

l'd blame parents,

ExCept he hasn't got 'em

Got to eat to live, got to steal to eat

Tell you all about it When l got time

One jump ahead of the sloWpokes,

One skip ahead of my doom

Next time, going to use a nom de plume

There he is.

One jump ahead of the hit men,

One hit ahead of the floCk

l think l'll take a stroll

Around the bloCk

- Stop, thief.

- Vandal.

- Abu.

- Scandal.

Let's not be too hasty

Still l think he's rather tasty

Got to eat to live, got to steal to eat,

Otherwise We'd get along


Get him!

He's got a sword.

You idiots.

We've all got swords.

One jump ahead of the hoof beats

One hop ahead of the hump

One triCk ahead of disaster,

They're quiCk but l'm muCh faster

Here goes, better throW my hand in,

Wish me happy landing

All l got to do is jump!

And now, esteemed effendi, we feast.

And now, esteemed effendi, we feast.


Go on, take it.

Ah, don't.

On his way to the palace, l suppose.

Another suitor for the princess.

Out of my way, you filthy brats.

Hey! lf l were as rich as you,

l could afford some manners.

l'll teach you some manners.

Look at that, Abu.

lt's not every day you see

a horse with two rear ends.

You are a worthless street rat.

You were born a street rat,

you'll die a street rat

and only your fleas will mourn you.

l'm not worthless.

And l don't have fleas.

Come on, Abu. Let's go home.

Riffraff, street rat

l don't buy that

lf only they'd look Closer

Would they see a poor boy?

No siree

They'd find out

There's so muCh more to me

Some day, Abu,

things are going to change.

We'll be rich, live in a palace

and never have any problems at all.
