"Welcome to the Forty Thieves" is a villain and a group song from Aladdin and the King of Thieves sung by the Forty Thieves and Cassim, plus Iago with two lines.


Congratulations, bub
You've joined the club
And everybody here agrees
We got the finest blend of nearly-honest men,
Welcome to the Forty Thieves!

A fraternity of thugs that you can trust
There's nothin' up our eighty sleeves
Got lots a grub to share
Pull up an easy chair!
Welcome to the Forty Thieves!

Now you get to lie and cheat
Never have to brush your teeth
But we always aim to please
Care for one another
You'll never miss your mother

Iago: (Oh, I love you guys.)

Schemin' up a scam,
Out on the lam,
Takin' whatever we please
And if you like to lurk
You're gonna love this work!
Welcome to the Forty Thieves!

Welcome to the Forty Thieves!

Together we're the perfect team (Thieves: Aaaah)
Larceny is in the genes (Thieves: Aaaah)
Dare to share the family dream? (Thieves: Aaaah)

Live a life o' leisure
Countin' all your treasure!

As an honorary member of the gang,
There's no one alive ever leaves
Ya gotta snatch and sneak
Or else your future's bleak
We got a lifetime contract that you're bound to keep
You wanna save your skin
You better fit right in,
Wel-wel-welcome to the,
Wel-wel-welcome to the
Forty thieves!
