Beauty and the Beast lyrics!


Once upon a time in a faraway land,
a young Prince lived in a shining castle.
Although he had everything his heart desired,
the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.
But then, one winter's night, an old beggar-woman
came to the castle and offered him a single rose
in return for shelter from the bitter cold.  
Repulsed by her haggard appearance,
the prince sneered at the gift,
and turned the old woman away...
but she warned him not to be deceived by appearances,
for beauty is found within.  
And when he dismissed her again,
the old women's ugliness melted away
to reveal a beautiful enchantress.  
The prince tried to apologize,
but it was too late,
for she had seen that there was no love in his heart,
and as punishment she transformed him into a hideous beast
and placed a powerful spell on the castle
and all who lived there.
 Ashamed of his monstrous form,
the beast concealed himself inside his castle
with a magic mirror as his only window
to the outside world.
   The rose she had offered,
was truely an enchanted rose,
which would bloom until his twenty-first year.
 If he could learn to love another,
and earn their love in return
by the time the last petal fell,
then, the spell would be broken!  
If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast
for all time!
As the years passed,
he fell into despair,
and lost all hope,
for who could ever learn to love a beast?

Richard White and Chorus

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

Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour!

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

[Baker:] Good Morning, Belle!

[Belle:] 'Morning, Monsieur.

[Baker:] 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. Marie! The baguettes! Hurry up!

Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can't you tell?

[Woman:]  Never part of any crowd

'Cause her head's up on some cloud

No denying she's a funny girl that Belle

[Man I:]  Bonjour!

[Woman I:]  Good day!

[Man I:]  How is your fam'ly?

[Woman II:]  Bonjour!

[Man II:]  Good day!

[Woman II:]  How is your wife?

[Woman III:]  I need six eggs!

[Man III:]  That's too expensive!

There must be more than this provincial life!

[Bookseller:]  Ah, Belle.

Good Morning. I've come to return the book I borrowed.

[Bookseller:]  Finished already?

Oh, I couldn't put it down. Have you got anything new?

[Bookseller:]  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!

[Belle:]  But sir!

[Bookseller:]  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!

[Gaston:]  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.

[LeFou:]  The inventor's daughter?

She's the one - the lucky girl I'm going to marry.

[LeFou:]  But she's -

The most beautiful girl in town.

[LeFou:]  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!

[Man I:]  Bonjour!

[Gaston:]  Pardon

[Man II:]  Good day

[Man III:]  Mais oui!

[Matron:]  You call this bacon?

[Woman I:]  What lovely grapes!

[Man IV:]  Some cheese

[Woman II:]  Ten yards!

[Man IV:]  One pound

[Gaston:]  'scuse me!

[Cheese merchant:]  I'll get the knife

[Gaston:]  Please let me through!

[Woman I:]  This bread -

[Man V:] Those fish -

[Woman I:]  It's stale!

[Man V:]  They smell!

[Baker:] 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!

"Belle (Reprise)"

Vocals: Paige O'hara

Is he gone? Can you imagine? He asked me to marry him.
Me, the wife of that boorish, brainless . . .

"Madame Gaston!"
Can't you just see it?
"Madame Gaston!"
His "little wife"
No sir! Not me!
I guarantee it
I want much more than this provincial life!

I want adventure in the great wide somewhere
I want it more than I can tell
And for once it might be grand
To have someone understand
I want so much more than they've got planned


Vocals: Richard White, Jesse Corti and Chorus

Who does she think she is? That girl has tangled with
the wrong man! No one says "no" to Gaston!

[LeFou:] Heh heh. Darn right.

Dismissed! Rejected! Publicly Humiliated! Why, it's
more than I can bear.

[LeFou:] More beer?

What for? Nothing helps. I'm disgraced.

Who, you? Never! Gaston,
you've got to pull yourself together.

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 ev'ryone's favorite guy
Ev'ryone'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's as incredibly thick as Gaston's
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

[Lefou and Chorus:]
No one's been like Gaston
A king pin like Gaston

No one's got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston

As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!

[Lefou and Chorus:]
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

[Beerdrinker 1:]
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 ev'ry last inch of me's covered with hair

[Cronies:]  No one hits like Gaston

[Townsman:]  Matches wits like Gaston

In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston

I'm especially good at expactorating!

[Chorus:]  Ten points for Gaston!

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs
Ev'ry 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 shoots 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 - E -
G-A-S-T-O - oh!

[Chorus:]  Gaston!

"Gaston (Reprise)"

Vocals: Richard White, Jesse Corti and Chorus

[Maurice:] Help! Someone help me!

[Innkeeper:]   Maurice?

Please! Please, I need your help. He's got her - he's
got her locked in the dungeon!

[LeFou:] Who?

Belle. We must go. N-not a minute to lose!

Whoa! Slow down, Maurice.
Who's got Belle locked in a dungeon?

A beast! A horrible, monstrous beast!

[Patron I:] Is it a big beast?

[Maurice:] Huge!

[Patron II:] With a long, ugly snout?

[Maurice:] Hideously ugly!

[Drinker III:] And sharp, cruel fangs?

[Maurice:] Yes! Yes! Will you help me?

All right, old man. We'll help you out.

You will? Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you!

[Innkeeper:] Crazy old Maurice.

[Beerdrinker I:] He's always good for a laugh.

[Gaston:] Crazy old Maurice, hmmm?
Crazy old Maurice. Hmmm.

LeFou, I'm afraid I've been thinking

[Lefou:]  A dangerous pastime-

[Gaston:]  -I know.
But that wacky old coot is Belle's father
And his sanity's only "so-so"
Now the wheels in my head have been turning
Since I looked at that loony, old man
See, I've promised myself I'd be married to Belle
And right now I'm evolving a plan

If I . . . {whisper}

[LeFou:] Yes?

[Gaston:] Then we . . . {whisper}

[LeFou:] No! Would she . . .

[Gaston:] {whisper} Guess!

[LeFou:] Now I get it!

Let's go!
No one plots like Gaston

Takes cheap shots like Gaston

Plans to persecute harmless crackpots like Gaston

So his marriage we soon'll be celebrating
My what a guy!

"Be Our Guest"

Vocals: Jery Orbach, Angela Lansbury and Chorus

Ma chere Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride
and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a
chair as the dining room proudly presents -
your dinner!

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 du jour
Hot hors d'oeuvres
Why, we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff, it's delicious
Don't believe 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

[Lumiere and Chorus:]
Beef ragout
Cheese souffle
Pie and pudding "en flambe"

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

[Lumiere and Chorus:]
Come on and lift your glass
You've won your own free pass
To be out guest

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

[Lumiere and Chorus:]
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 exercise, 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!

[Mrs Potts:]
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-shoein'
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!

[Chorus:]  She's our guest!

[Mrs Potts:]  She's our guest!

She's our guest!  
Be our guest
Be our guest
Our command is your request
It's ten years since we've 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

[Lumiere and Chorus:]
Course by course
One by one
'Til 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!

"Something There"

Vocals: Paige O'hara, Robby Benson, Angela Lansbury,
Jerry Orbach and David Ogden Stiers

There's something sweet
And almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
And now he's dear
And so I'm sure
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

[Lumiere:]  Well, who'd have thought?

[Mrs Potts:]  Well, bless my soul

[Cogsworth:]  Well, who'd have known?

[Mrs Potts:]
Well, who indeed?

And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?

[Mrs Potts:]
It's so peculiar. Wait and see

[Lumiere and Cogsworth:]  We'll wait and see

[All three:]
A few days more
There may be something there that wasn't there before

'Ere, perhaps there's something there
That wasn't there before

[Mrs Potts:]
There may be something there that wasn't there before

"The Mob Song"

Vocals: Richard White and Chorus

The Beast will make off with your children.

[Crowd:] {gasp}

He'll come after them in the night.

[Belle:] No!

We're not safe till his head is mounted on my wall!
I say we kill the Beast!

[Mob:] Kill him!

[Man I:]
We're not safe until he's dead

[Man II:]
He'll come stalking us at night

Set to sacrifice our children to his monstrous appetite

[Man III:]
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
Killer claws for the feast
Hear him roar
See him foam
But we're not coming home
'Til he's dead
Good and dead!
Kill the Beast!

[Belle:] No! I won't let you do this!

If you're not with us, you're against us!
Bring the old man!

[Maurice:] Get your hands off me!

We can't have them running off to warn the creature.

[Belle:] Let us out!

We'll rid the village of this Beast. Who's with me?

[Mob:] I am! I am! I am!

Light your torch
Mount your horse!

Screw your courage to the sticking place!

We're counting on Gaston to lead the way!

Through a mist
Through a wood
Where within a haunted castle
Something's lurking that you don't see ev'ry day!

It's a beast
One as tall as a mountain
We won't rest
'Til he's good and deceased
Sally forth!
Tally ho!
Grab your sword!
Grab your bow!
Praise the Lord and here we go!

We'll lay siege to the castle and bring back his head!

I have to warn the Beast! This is all my fault! Oh, Papa,
what are we going to do?

Now, now, we'll think of something.

We don't like
What we don't understand
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!

I knew it! I knew it was foolish to get our hopes up.

Maybe it would have been better if she had never come at all.
Could it be?

[Mrs Potts:] Is it she?

[Lumiere:] Sacre Bleu! Invaders!

[Cogsworth:] Encroachers!

[Mrs Potts:] And they've got the mirror!

Warn the Master! If it's a fight they want, we'll be
ready for them! Who's with me?

Take whatever booty you can find. But remember,
the Beast is MINE!

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!

[Mrs Potts:] Pardon me, Master.

[Beast:] Leave me in peace.

[Mrs Potts:]
But sir! The castle is under attack!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast

[Lumiere:] This isn't working!

Oh Lumiere, we must do something!

[Lumiere:] Wait, I know!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

[Mrs Potts:] What shall we do, Master?

It doesn't matter now. Just let them come.

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

"Beauty and the Beast"

Vocal: Angela Lansbury

[Mrs. Potts:]
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 as before
Ever just as sure
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.
