Friend Like Me

Album: Aladdin Soundtrack (1992)
  • Well Ali Baba had them forty thieves
    Scheherezad-ie had a thousand tales
    But master you in luck 'cause up your sleeves
    You got a brand of magic never fails
    You got some power in your corner now
    Some heavy ammunition in your camp
    You got some punch, pizzazz, yahoo and how
    See all you gotta do is rub that lamp
    And I'll say

    Mister Aladdin, sir
    What will your pleasure be?
    Let me take your order
    Jot it down
    You ain't never had a friend like me

    Life is your restaurant
    And I'm your maitre d'
    C'mon whisper what it is you want
    You ain't never had a friend like me

    Yes sir, we pride ourselves on service
    You're the boss
    The king, the shah
    Say what you wish
    It's yours, true dish
    How about a little more Baklava?

    Have some of column A
    Try all of column B
    I'm in the mood to help you dude
    You ain't never had a friend like me

    Can your friends do this?
    Do your friends do that?
    Do your friends pull this out their little hat?
    Can your friends go poof?
    Well, looky here
    Can your friends go, Abracadabra, let 'er rip
    And then make the sucker disappear?

    So dontcha sit there slack-jawed, buggy-eyed
    I'm here to answer all your midday prayers
    You got me bona fide, certified
    You got a genie for your chargé d'affaires
    I got a powerful urge to help you out
    So what-cha wish?
    I really want to know
    You got a list that's three miles long, no doubt
    Well, all you gotta do is rub like so - and oh

    Mister Aladdin, sir, have a wish or two or three
    I'm on the job, you big nabob
    You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
    You ain't never had a friend, never had a friend
    You ain't never had a friend like me
    You ain't never had a friend like me, hah! Writer/s: Alan Menken, Howard Ashman
