Aladdin’s BFF

I am the legendary Aladdin, and it is high time I confessed

Having you in my life makes me feel not just lucky but blessed

It is not just that you have magical powers, many others have them too

But none of them can do the things for me, my friend, that you do


When we first met, I was a nobody, a wastrel, just a street urchin

But you gave me the confidence to carpe diem, to go out there and win

Many a times when I was on the verge of giving it all up and quitting

I sat with you at night, and found all my worries, all my stress, exiting


People have been jealous of our team since long

Ignoring that it is you who brings to my lips many a merry song

They say you are bad for me, dependence on you will cause me harm

But I know that they’re just jealous, and want to take away my lucky charm


I know you’re getting worried because I’m getting married to Jasmine soon

But I swear to you my friend, by the sun, and the stars and the moon

That if anyone tries to come between us, I will see it as an unforgivable crime

For you are mine, Aladdin’s gin, best had with some tonic and lime
