    Be Our Guest

    [LUMIERE]
    Ma chere Mademoiselle, it is with deepest pride
    And greatest pleasure that we welcome you here 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
    We only live to serve
    Try the grey stuff

    [CHIP]
    Oh, 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!

    [LUMIERE & ALL]
    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

    [ALL]
    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

    [ALL]
    Be our guest! Be our guest! Be our guest!

    Be our guest! 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
    It's a treat for any diner
    Don't believe me? Ask the china
    Singing pork! Dancing veal!
    What an entertaining meal!
    How could anyone be gloomy and depressed?
    We'll make you shout "encore!"
    And send us out for more
    So, be our guest!

    [LUMIERE]
    Be our guest!

    [ALL]
    Be our guest!

    [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

    [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 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!

    [COGSWORTH, spoken]
    Lumiere! Think of what the master will do if he finds out about this!

    [LUMIERE]
    And now, for you continued dining experience:
    Napkins! S'il vous plait!

    [NAPKINS]
    Oh la la!
    Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six, sept, wheee!

    [ALL]
    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!
