Songs from Beauty and the Beast

Be Our Guest

Be our guest!
Be our guest
Put our service to the test

Tie your napkin' round your
neck cherie
And we provide the rest
Soup de jour!
Hot hors d'oeuvres!

Why, we only live our live to serve
Try the gray stuff it's delicious!
Don't belive me?
Ask the dishes!

They can sing!
They can dance!
After all, miss, this is France!
And a dinner here is never second best

Go on, unfold your menu
Take a glance
And then you'll be our guest
Oui, our guest!
Be our guest!

Beef ragout!
Cheese souffle!
Pie and pudding enflambe!
We'll prepare and serve with flair
A culinary cabaret

You're alone and you're scared
But the banquet's all prepared
No one's gloomy or complaining
While the flatware's entertaining
We tell jokes
I do tricks with my fellow candlesticks

And it's all in perfect taste
That you can bet!

Come on and lift your glass
You've won your own free pass
To be our guest!

If you're stressed
It's fine dining we suggest

Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Be our guest!

Life is so unnerving for
a servant who's not serving
He's not whole without a soul
to wait upon
Ah, those good old days when
we were useful
Suddenly, those good old days are gone

Ten years, we've been rusting
Needing so much more than dusting
Needing excercise, a chance to use
our skills
Most days, we just lay around the castle
Flabby, fat, and lazy
You walked in and oops-a-daisy

It's a guest!
It's a guest!
Sakes alive
Well, I'll be blessed!

Wine's been poured and thank the lord
I've had the napkins freshly pressed
With dessert she'll want tea
And my dear, that's fine with me

While the cups do their soft shoeing
I'll be bubbling!
I'll be brewing!

I'll get warm, piping hot!
Heaven's sakes!
Is that a spot?
Clean it up!

We want the company impressed
We've got a lot to do
Is it one lump or two?
For you, our guest?

She's our guest!

She's our guest!

Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Be our guest!

Our command is your request
It's ten years since we had anybody here
And we're obsessed
With your meal
With your ease
Yes, indeed
We aim to please

While the candlelight's still glowing
Let us help you
We'll keep going

Course by course
One by one!
Till you shout
"Enough. I'm done!"

Then we'll sing you off to
sleep as you digest
Tonight you'll prop your feet up!
But for now, let's eat up!

Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Please, be our guest!

Beauty and the Beast

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends

Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever just before
As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
Rising in the East
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast


Little town It's a quiet village
Ev'ry day Like the one before
Little town
Full of little peopleWaking up to say

There goes the baker with his tray
like always The same old bread and rolls to sell
Ev'ry morning just the same
Since the morning that we came
To this poor provincial town

Good Morning, Belle!
Morning, Monsieur.
Where are you off to?
The bookshop. I just finished the most wonderful story
About a beanstalk and an ogre and a -
That's nice.

The baguettes!
Hurry up!

Look there she goes that girl is strange
no question
Dazed and distracted
can't you tell?
Never part of any crowd
'Cause her head's up on some cloud
No denying she's a funny girl that Belle

Good day!
How is your fam'ly?
Good day!
How is your wife?
I need six eggs!
That's too expensive!
There must be more than this provincial life!

Ah, Belle
Good Morning, I've come to return the book I borrowed.
Finished already?
Oh, I couldn't put it down
Have you got anything new?
Not since yesterday
That's all right. I'll borrow . . . . . this one!
That one? But you've read it twice!
Well, it's my favorite!
Far off places
daring swordfights
magic spells
a prince in disguise
If you like it all that much, it's yours!
But sir!
I insist.
Well, thank you. Thank you very much!

Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she's feeling well

With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle

Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my fav'rite part because --- you'll see
Here's where she meets Prince Charming
But she won't discover that it's him 'til chapter three!

Now it's no wonder that
her name means "Beauty"
Her looks have got no parallel
But behind that fair facade
I'm afraid she's rather odd

Very diff'rent from the rest of us
She's nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff'rent from the rest of us
is Belle!

Wow! You didn't miss a shot, Gaston!
You're the greatest hunter in the whole world!
I know.
No beast alive stands a chance against you
And no girl, for that matter.
It's true, LeFou. And I've got my sights set on that one.
The inventor's daughter?
She's the one
The lucky girl I'm going to marry.
But she's -
The most beautiful girl in town.
I know, but -
That makes her the best. And don't I deserve the best?
Well, of course! I mean you do, but -

Right from the moment when I met her, saw her
I said she's gorgeous and I fell
Here in town there's only she
Who is beautiful as me
So I'm making plans to woo and marry Belle

Look there he goes
Isn't he dreamy?
Monsieur Gaston
Oh he's so cute!
Be still my heart
I'm hardly breathing
He's such a tall, dark, strong and handsome brute!

Good day
Mais oui!

You call this bacon?
What lovely grapes!
Some cheese
Ten yards!
one pound
'scuse me!
I'll get the knife
Please let me through!
This bread - Those fish -
it's stale! They smell! Madame's mistaken.
There must be more than this provincial life!

Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife!
Look there she goes
The girl is strange but special
A most peculiar mad'moiselle!
It's a pity and a sin
She doesn't quite fit in
'Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
That Belle!


Gosh, it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in town as
admired as you
You're everyone's fa-vor-ite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why

No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck is as incredibly thick as
For there's no man in town
half as manly
Perfect! A pure paragon!
you can ask any Tom, Dick
or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team
They prefer to be on!

No one's been like Gaston
A kingpin like Gaston
No one's got a sell cleft in
his chin like Gaston!
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!
My, what a guy, that Gaston!
Give five hurrahs! Give
twelve hip-hips!
Gaston is the best and the
rest is all drips!

No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston
In a wrestling match, nobody
bites like Gaston
For there's no one as
burly and brawny
As you see, I've got biceps to spare
Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny
That's right! And every last inch of
me's covered with hair!

No one hits like Gaston
Matches wits like Gaston
In a spitting match, nobody
spits like Gaston
I'm especially good at expectorating!
Ten points for Gaston!

When I was a lad I ate
four dozen eggs
Every morning to help me get large
And now that I'm grown
I eat five dozen eggs
So I'm roughly the size of a barge

No one shhots like Gaston
Makes those beauts like Gaston
Then goes tromping around wearing
boots like Gaston

I use antlers in all of my decorating!

Say it again
Who's a man among men?
And then say it once more
Who's the hero next door?
Who's a super success?
Don't you know?
Can't you guess?
Ask his fans and his five hangers-on
There's just one guy in town who's got
all of it down
and his name's G-A-S-T...
G-A-S-T-O...Oh! Oh!

The Mob Song

We're not safe until he's dead
He'll come stalking us at night
Set to sacrifice our children to his
monstrous appetite
He'll wreak havoc on our village
if we let him wander free
So it's time to take some action, boys
It's time to follow me

Through the mist, through the woods
Through the darkness and
the shadows
It's a nightmare but it's one
exciting ride
Say a prayer, then we're there
At the drawbridge of a castle
And there's something truly
terrible inside

It's a beast! He's got fangs-razor
sharp ones
Massive paws, kiler claws
for the feast
Hear him roar! See him foam!
But we're not coming home
till he's dead!
Good and dead!
Kill the beast!

Light you torch
Mount your horse
Screw your courage to the
sticking place!
We're counting on Gaston to
lead the way
Through the mist, through the wood
Where within a haunted castle
Something's lurking that you
don't see ev'ryday

It's a beast! one as tall as
a mountain!
We won't reat till he's
good and deceased
Sally forth! Tallyho!
Grab your sword! Grab your bow!
Praise the Lord and here we go!

We don't like what we don't
In fact it scares us and this monster
is mysterious at least
Bring your guns, bring your knives
Save your children and your wives
We'll save our village and our lives
We'll kill the beast!

Hearts ablaze, banners high
We go marching into battle unafraid
Although the danger just increased
Raise the flag! Sing the song!
Here we come we're fifty strong!
And fifty Frenchmen can't be wrong!
Let's kill the beast!

Kill the beast!

Something there

There's something sweet
And almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse
and unrefined
And now he's dear and so unsure
I wonder why I didn't see
it there before

She glanced this way, I thought I saw
And when we touched she didn't
shudder at my paw
No, it can't be...I'll just ignore
But then she's never looked at me that
way before

New and a bit alarming
Who'd have ever thought
that this could be?
True that he's no Prince Charming
But there's something in him
That I simply didn't see

Well, who'd have thought?
Well, bless my soul
Well, who'd have known?
Well, who indeed?
And who'd have guessed they'd come
Together on their own?
It's so peculiar
We'll wait and see, a few days more
There may be something there that
Wasn't there before

You know, perhaps there's
something there that
Wasn't there before
There may be something there that
Wasn't there before
