"1001 Arabian Nights" is a song by Dutch band Ch!pz, from their 2004 album The World of Ch!pz. The song remained at number one in the Dutch singles chart for four weeks. It reached number two in Austria, and number three in Germany and Switzerland.
Filmed on location in India, the band travel to a Middle Eastern city where a magic lamp has been stolen by a thief. They battle the bodyguards and while Rachel and Cilla distract the thief (who has wished to become the world's richest man and having had the jester turned into a goat) by dancing for him, Kevin and Peter steal the lamp and the band escape. The city is then restored with the return of the lamp and the thief is arrested while the band bid farewell to the people.
