1. Belle

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

SHEPHERD:
Bonjour!

MARIE:
Bonjour!

TAVERN MASTER:
Bonjour!

LAUNDRY LADY:
Bonjour!

BAKER:
Bonjour!

BELLE:
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!


(dialogue break)


BAKER:
That’s nice. Marie!
The baguettes! Hurry up!

MILKMAID, FLOWER SELLER:
Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can’t you tell?

SAUSAGE CURL LADY, LAUNDRY LADY:
Never part of any crowd

SHEPHERD, TAVERN MASTER:
‘Cause her head’s up on some cloud

TOWNSFOLK:
No denying she’s a funny girl, that Belle

CANDLEMAKER:
Bonjour!

MARIE:
Good day!

CANDLEMAKER:
How is your fam’ly?

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
Bonjour!

HAT SELLER:
Good day!

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
How is your wife?

LAUNDRY LADY:
I need six eggs!

FLOWER SELLER:
That’s too expensive!

BELLE:
There must be more than this provincial life!


(dialogue break)


TOWNSFOLK:
Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well

WOMEN:
With a dreamy, far-off look

MEN:
And her nose stuck in a book

ALL:
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle

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!

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
Now it’s no wonder that her name means “Beauty”
Her looks have got no parallel

BOOKSELLER, CANDLEMAKER:
But behind that fair facade
I’m afraid she’s rather odd

CANDLEMAKER:
Very diff’rent from the rest of us

TOWNSFOLK:
She’s nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff’rent from the rest of us is Belle!

(dialogue break)

 

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

LES FILLES:
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!

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
Bonjour!

GASTON:
Pardon!

BELLE:
Good day

MARIE:
Mais oui!

FLOWER SELLER:
You call this bacon?

LAUNDRY LADY:
What lovely grapes!

CRONY:
Some cheese

MILKMAID:
Ten yards!

BOOKSELLER:
One pound

GASTON
‘scuse me!

CANDLEMAKER:
I’ll get the knife

GASTON:
Please let me through!

MARIE:
This bread –

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
Those fish –

MARIE:
It’s stale!

SAUSAGE CURL LADY:
They smell!

MEN:
Madame’s mistaken.

WOMEN:
Well, maybe so

TOWNSFOLK:
Good morning! Oh, good morning!

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 mad’moiselle!

WOMEN:
It’s a pity and a sin

MEN:
She doesn’t quite fit in

TOWNSFOLK:
‘Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
That Belle!

2. Me

GASTON:
You’ve been dreaming, just one dream
Nearly all your life
Hoping, scheming, just one theme:
Will you be a wife?
Will you be some he-man’s property?
Good news! That he-man’s me!

This equation, girl plus man
Doesn’t help just you
On occasion, women can
Have their uses too
Mainly to extend the family tree
Pumpkin, extend with me!

We’ll be raising sons galore

BELLE:
Inconceivable!

GASTON:
Each built six foot four!

BELLE:
Unbelievable!

GASTON:
Each one stuffed with ev’ry Gaston gene!

BELLE:
I’m not hearing this!

GASTON:
You’ll be keeping house with pride!

BELLE:
Just incredible!

GASTON:
Each day gratified

BELLE:
So unweddable!

GASTON:
That you are a part of this idyllic scene

(dialogue break)

GASTON:
I can see that we will share
All that love implies
We shall be the perfect pair
Rather like my thighs
You are face to face with destiny!
All roads lead to…
The best things in life are…
All’s well that ends with me!
Escape me?
There’s no way
Certain as “Do, Re,”
Belle, when you marry….
(spoken)
So Belle, what’ll it be?
Is it “yes”, or is it “oh, yes”?

BELLE, spoken:
I just don’t deserve you!

GASTON, spoken:
Who does?
(sung)
Me!

3. Belle (Reprise)

BELLE, spoken:
Is he gone? 
Can you imagine? 
He asked me to marry him! 
Me! The wife of that boorish, brainless…

(sung)
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

4. Home

BELLE:
Yes, I made the choice
For Papa, I will stay
But I don’t deserve to lose my freedom in this way
You monster!
If you think that what you’ve done is right, well then
You’re a fool
Think again

Is this home?
Is this where I should learn to be happy?
Never dreamed
That a home could be dark and cold
I was told
Every day in my childhood
Even when we grow old
“Home should be where the heart is”
Never were words so true
My heart’s far, far away
Home is too

What I’d give to return
To the life that I knew lately
And to think I complained
Of that dull provincial town!

Is this home?
Am I here for a day or forever?
Shut away
From the world until who knows when?
Oh, but then
As my life has been altered once
It can change again
Build higher walls around me!
Change every lock and key
Nothing lasts
Nothing holds all of me

My heart’s far, far away
Home and free

 

(dialogue break)

 

MRS. POTTS, spoken:
Cheer up child. I know things may seem bleak right now, but you mustn’t despair. We’re here to see you through.
(sung)
I hope that we’ll be friends
Though I don’t know you well
If anyone can make the most of living here
Then, Belle, it’s you

MADAME DE LA GRANDE BOUCHE:
And who knows?
You may find

BOTH:
Home here, too!

5. Gaston

LEFOU:
Gosh it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Ev’ry 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!
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’d prefer to be on!

ALL:
No one’s been like Gaston
A king pin like Gaston

LEFOU:
No one’s got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston

GASTON:
As a specimen, yes, I’m intimidating!

ALL:
My what a guy, that Gaston!

LES FILLES, CRONIES:
Give five “hurrahs!”
Give twelve “hip-hips!”

LEFOU:
Gaston is the best
And the rest is all drips

ALL:
No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston

LEFOU:
In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston!

LES FILLES:
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 ev’ry last inch of me’s covered with hair

CRONIES:
No one hits like Gaston
Matches wits like Gaston

LEFOU:
In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston

GASTON:
I’m especially good at expectorating!
Ptooey!

ALL:
Ten points for Gaston!

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!

ALL except Gaston:
Ooh! 
Ah!
Wow!
My what a guy, that Gaston!


—dance break—

 

ALL:
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!

CHORUS:
My what a guy!

LEFOU, spoken:
What a guy!

ALL:
Gaston!

 

GASTON REPRISE

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:
If I . . . (whispers to Lefou)

LEFOU:
Yes?

GASTON:
Then we . . . (whispers to Lefou)

LEFOU:
No! Would she –

GASTON:
Guess!

LEFOU:
Now I get it!

BOTH:
Let’s go! 
No one plots like Gaston

GASTON:
Takes cheap shots like Gaston

LEFOU:
Plans to persecute harmless crackpots like Gaston

GASTON:
Yes, I’m endlessly, wildly resourceful

LEFOU:
As down to the depths you descend

GASTON:
I won’t even be mildly remorseful

LEFOU:
Just as long as you get what you want in the end!

GASTON:
Who has brains like Gaston?

LEFOU:
Entertains like Gaston?

BOTH:
Who can make up these endless refrains like Gaston?
And his marriage we soon will be celebrating!
My, what a guy! Gaston!

6. Be Our Guest

LUMIERE, spoken:
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!

(sung)
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 grey stuff

CHIP:
It’s delicious!

LUMIERE:
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:
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

FLATWARE:
We tell jokes! 

LUMIERE:
I do tricks
With my fellow candlesticks

FLATWARE:
And it’s all in perfect taste
That you can bet

LUMIERE AND FLATWARE:
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

ALL:
Be our guest, be our guest, be our guest!
Ah!
Be our guest! Be our guest!
Get your worries off your chest
Let us say, for your entree
We’ve an array, may we suggest
Try the bread, try the soup
When the croutons loop de loop

WOMEN:
It’s a treat for any diner
Don’t believe me? Ask the china!

MEN:
Singing pork! Dancing veal!
What an entertaining meal!

ALL:
How could anyone be gloomy or depressed?
We’ll make you shout “encore!”
And send us out for more
So, be our guest!

LUMIERE:
Be our guest!

CHORUS:
Be our guest!

 

—short dance break—

 

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-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

ALL:
We’ve got a lot to do!

MRS POTTS:
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! Be our guest!

LUMIERE:
Life is so unerving
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
For 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 whoops-a-daisy!

 

—long dance break—

 

CHORUS:
Be our guest! Be our guest!
Our command is your request
It’s been 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
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!

7. Something There

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

(dialogue break) 

 

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

 

(dialogue break) 

 

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. 

ALL THREE:
Wait and see, a few days more
There may be something there that 
Wasn’t there before

COGSWORTH:
Perhaps there’s something there
That wasn’t there before

CHIP, spoken:
What?

MRS. POTTS:
There may be something there 
That wasn’t there before.

8. Human Again

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 sev’ral husbands alarm!

CHIP:
‘ll hop down off this shelf

LUMIERE, MRS. POTTS, BABETTE, MADAME:
And toute suite be myself

CHIP:
I can’t wait to be human again

MRS. POTTS, BABETTE, MADAME:
When we’re human again
Only human again
When we’re knickknacks and whatnots no more

CHIP:
Little push, little shove
They could whoosh fall in love!

MADAME:
Ah, 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 savior-faire
I’ll wear gowns! I’ll have hair!
It’s my prayer to be human again

COGSWORTH:
When I’m human again
Only human again
When the world once more starts making sense
I’ll unwind for a change

LUMIERE:
Really? That’d be strange!

COGSWORTH:
Can I help it 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


ALL:
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!

LUMIERE:
Shine up the brass on the door

BABETTE:
Alert the dustpail and the broom

ALL:
If it all goes as planned
Our time may be at hand
Any day now!

ALL:
Open the shutters and let in some air

MRS. POTTS:
Put these here and put those over there

ALL:
Sweep up the years of sadness and tears
And throw them away!

(dialogue break)

 

ALL:
When we’re human again
Only human again
When the girl fin’lly sets us all free
Cheeks a-bloomin’ again
We’re assumin’ again
We’ll resume our long lost joie de vie
We’ll be playin’ again
Holidayin’ again
And we’re prayin’ it’s A-S-A-P
When we cast off this pall
We’ll stand straight, we’ll walk tall
When we’re all that we were
Thanks to him, thanks to her
Coming closer and closer and closer and closer
And closer and closer and

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 fin’lly reborn
And we’re all of us human again!

9. 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

10. Mob Song

VILLAGER 1:
We’re not safe until he’s dead

VILLAGER 2:
He’ll come stalking us at night

SOME VILLAGERS:
Set to sacrifice our children 
To his monstrous appetite

MONSIEUR D’ARQUE:
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 feas
Hear him roar, see him foam
But we’re not coming home till he’s dead,
Good and dead! Kill the Beast!

(dialogue break)

ALL:
Light your torch, mount your horse

GASTON:
Screw your courage to the sticking place

ALL:
We’re counting on Gaston to lead the way

WOMEN:
Through a mist, through a wood
Where within a haunted castle
Something’s lurking that you don’t
See every day

ALL:
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!

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!

Hearts ablaze, banners high
We go marching into battle
Unafraid, although the danger’s just increased
Raise a flag! Sing a 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!
