Belle
Belle & Villagers

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

Townsfolk
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour!

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

Townsfolk
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

Man
Bonjour
Woman
Good day
Man
How is your family?
Woman
Bonjour
Man
Good day
Woman
How is your wife?
Woman
I need six eggs
Man
That's too expensive

Belle
There must be more than this provincial life

Townsfolk
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

Belle
Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my favorite part because…..you'll see
Here's where she meets Prince Charming
But she won't discover that it's him till chapter three

Woman
Now it's no wonder that her name means beauty
Her looks have got no parallel

Shopkeeper
But behind that fair facade
I'm afraid she's rather odd
Very different from the rest of us

Townsfolk
She's nothing like the rest of us
Yes, different from the rest of us is Belle

Gaston
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

Triplets
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
Bonjour!
Gaston
Pardon
Man
Good day
Man
Mais oui!
Matron
You call this bacon?
Woman
What lovely grapes!
Man
Some cheese
Woman
Ten yards
Man
One pound
Gaston
Excuse me!
Cheese merchant
I'll get the knife
Gaston
Please let me through!
Woman
This bread…
Man
Those fish…
Woman
it's stale!
Man
they smell!
Baker
Madame's mistaken

Belle
There must be more than this provincial life!

Gaston
Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife!

Townsfolk
Look there she goes a girl who's strange but special
A most peculiar mademoiselle
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

Townsfolk
Bonjour!
Bonjour!
Bonjour, Bonjour, Bonjour, Bonjour!

Belle
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 if 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



Gaston
LeFou & Gaston

LeFou
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 favorite 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's as incredibly thick as Gaston
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

Bar Patrons
No one's been like Gaston
A kingpin like Gaston

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

Gaston
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating

Bar Patrons
My, what a guy, that Gaston
Give five "hurrahs"
Give twelve "hip-hips!"

LeFou
Gaston is the best
And the rest is all drips

Bar Patrons
No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston

Man
In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston

Triplets
For there's no one as burly and brawny

Gaston
As you see, I've got biceps to spare

LeFou
Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny

Gaston
That's right!
And every last inch of me's covered with hair

Bar Patrons
No one hits like Gaston

Bar Patron
Matches wits like Gaston

LeFou
In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston

Gaston
I'm especially good at expectorating
Ptooey!

Bar Patrons
Ten points for Gaston!

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

Bar Patrons
No one shoots like Gaston
Makes those beauts like Gaston

LeFou
Then goes tromping around wearing boots like Gaston

Gaston
I use antlers in all of my decorating

Bar Patrons
My, what a guy
Gaston!

Gaston
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 promised myself
I'd be married to Belle
And right now, I'm evolving a plan

Gaston & LeFou
No...one...
Plots like Gaston

Gaston
Takes cheap shots like Gaston

LeFou
Plans to persecute harmless
crackpots like Gaston

Bar Patrons
So his marriage
we soon will be celebrating
My, what a guy!
Gaston!



Be Our Guest
Lumiere, Flatware & Mrs. Potts

Lumiere
Be our guest! Be our guest!
Put our service to the test
Tie a napkin round your neck, Cherie,
And we'll provide the rest
Soup du jour!
Hot hors d'oeuvres!
Why, we only live to serve

Try the gray 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

Flatware & Lumiere
Beef ragout!
Cheese souffle!
Pie and pudding en flambe!

Lumiere
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

Flatware
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!

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

Lumiere & Dishes
Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Be our guest!

Lumiere
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
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 pouring 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?

All
She's our guest!

Mrs. Potts
She's our guest!

All
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

Everyone
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!



There's Something There
Belle & The Beast

Belle
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

Beast
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

Belle
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?

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

Mrs Potts
It's so peculiar

Lumiere, Mrs. Potts & Cogsworth
We'll wait and see

All
A few days more
There may be something there 
that wasn't there before

Cogsworth
You know, perhaps there is something there
that wasn't there before

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



Human Again
Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts & Enchanted Objects

Lumiere
I'll be cooking again
Be good looking again
With a mademoiselle on each arm
When I'm human again
Only human again
Poised and polished
and gleaming with charm
I'll be courting again
Chic and sporting again

Mrs. Potts
Which should cause several husbands alarm

Lumiere
Ha, ha
I'll hop down off this shelf
And tout de suite be myself

Lumiere & Mrs. Potts
I can't wait to be human again

Enchanted Objects
When we're human again
Only human again
When we're knickknacks
and whatnots no more
When we're human again
good and human again

Wardrobe
Oh, cherie, won't it all be top drawer?
I'll wear lipstick and rouge
And I won't be so huge
Why, I'll easily fit through that door
I'll exude savoir faire
I'll wear gowns
I'll have hair
It's my prayer to be human again

Mrs. Potts & Cogsworth
When we're human again
Only human again
When the world once more
starts making sense

Cogsworth
I'll unwind, for a change

Lumiere
Really?  That'd be strange

Cogsworth
Can I help if I'm t-t-tense?
In a shack by the sea
I'll sit back, sipping tea
Let my early retirement commence
Far from fools made of wax
I'll get down to brass tacks and relax

Enchanted Objects
When I'm human again
So sweep the dust from the floor
Let's let some light in the room
I can feel, I can tell
Someone might break the spell
any day now
Shine up the brass on the door
Alert the dust pail and broom
If it all goes as planned
Our time may be at hand
any day now

Dusters
Open the shutters
and let in some air

Mrs. Potts
Put these here
and put those over there

Enchanted Objects
Sweep up the years
of sadness and tears
And throw them away

We'll be human again
Only human again
When the girl finally sets us all free
Cheeks a-blooming again
We're assuming again
We'll resume our
long lost joie de vivre

We'll be playing again
Holidaying again
And we're praying it's ASAP
We will push, we will shove
They will both fall in love
And we'll finally be human again

We'll be dancing again
We'll be twirling again
We'll be whirling around
with such ease
When we're human again
Only human again

We'll go waltzing those old one, two, threes
We'll be floating again
We'll be gliding again
Stepping, striding as fine as you please

Like a real human does
I'll be all that I was 
On that glorious morn
when we're finally reborn
And we're all 
Human again!



Beauty and the Beast
Mrs. Potts

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

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



The Mob Song
Gaston & Mob

Man 1
We're not safe until he's dead

Man 2
He'll come stalking us at night

Woman
Set to sacrifice our children
To his monstrous appetite

Man 3
He'll wreak havoc on our village
If we let him wander free

Gaston
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
Till he's dead
Good and dead
Kill the Beast!

Mob
Raise your torch
mount your horse

Gaston
Screw your courage
to the sticking place

Mob
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 every day

It's a beast!
One as tall as a mountain
We won't rest
Till he's good and deceased

Sally forth
Tally ho
Grab your sword
Grab your bow
Praise the Lord and here we go!

Mob
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!

Enchanted Objects
Hearts ablaze
Banners high
We go marching into battle
Unafraid although the danger just increased

Mob
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!
Kill the Beast

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

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