Arabian Nights

This song is by Alan Menken and appears on the Disney soundtrack Aladdin (1992).

This song is featured in the movie Aladdin.
Oh, I come from a land, from a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where they cut off your ear
If they don't like your face
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

Arabian nights
Like Arabian days
More often than not
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


Bruce Adler: vocals


Because of a protest from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) in 1993, the lyric "Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face" was changed to "Where it's flat and immense and the heat is intense". This line is featured in all home video releases of the film from that date and in the special edition version of the film's soundtrack.
