There’s a town they call Damascus
And a long long time ago
There lived a clever fellow
Whom all of you should know.
Old Ali Baba, Baba, Baba,
Old Ali Baba was his name,
Ali, Ali Baba was that mad cat’s name. [Now]
They called him Ali Baba
And he ran with forty thieves
When he felt broke
All he spoke was Open Sesame.
They tell me Alley Oop
and his dinosaur were bad,
But all those cats cleared the scene
‘Cause Ali Baba was so mean.
When the big stone rolled open,
There were silver, gold and pearls,
The sultan was mad at Ali Baba,
He stole the sultan’s dancing girls.
Now if any of you wonder
Why the dersert’s here today,
Ali Baba was taking ev’rything,
He even took the grass away.
