Aladdin sane?

Los Angeles (Reuter) - Walt Disney has agreed to alter two lines of lyrics in Aladdin after complaints of racism from Arab- American groups. The lyrics in the film's opening song, 'Arabian Nights', were: '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.'

The new lyrics will read: 'Oh, I come from a land / From a faraway place /Where the caravan camels roam /Where it's flat and immense /And the heat is intense / It's barbaric, but hey, it's home.' The new lines will be heard on the video of the film, to be released in October.
