"You're Only Second Rate" is a song from the 1994 Disney direct-to-video animated film The Return of Jafar. It features Jafar boasting about how he is superior to Genie as he humiliates and imprisons him along with Abu.

It was performed by Jafar's voice actor Jonathan Freeman.

Lyrics

I must admit
Your parlor tricks
Are amusing
I bet you've got a bunny
Under your hat
Now here's your chance
To get the best of me
Hope your hand is hot
C'mon clown
Let's see what you've got

You can try to slam me
With your harder stuff
But your double whammy
Isn't up to snuff
I'll set the record straight
You're simply out of date
You're only second rate

You think your cat's a meanie
But your tiger's tame
You've got a lot to learn
About the genie game
So for your education
I reiterate
You're only second rate

Men cower
At the power
In my pinky
My thumb is number one
On every list
But if you're not convinced
That I'm invincible
Put me to the test
I'd love to lay this rivalry to rest

Go ahead and zap me
With a big surprise
Slap me in a trap
Cut me down to size
I'll make a great escape
It's just a piece of cake
You're only second rate

You know your hocus-pocus
Isn't tough enough
And your mumbo-jumbo
Doesn't measure up
Let me pontificate
Upon your sorry state
You're only second rate

Zaba-caba-dabra
Granny's gonna grab ya!
Alakazam-da-mus
And this thing's bigger than the both of us

So spare me your tremendous stare
You look horrendous in your underwear
And I can hardly wait
To discombobulate
I'll send your back end packing
In a shipping crate
You'll make a better living
With a spinning plate
You're only second rate!
