Be Our Guest Lyrics
Lumiere: Ma chère 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 around your neck, chérie
And we’ll provide the rest
Soupe du jour, hot hors-d’œuvres
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 the 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 soufflé, pie and pudding “en flambé”
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
Chorus: 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!
Chorus: 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
—Eh, Cogsworth? Suddenly those good old days are gone
Too long, 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-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!
Lumiere and chorus: She’s our guest!
Mrs. Potts: She’s our guest!
Cogsworth and chorus: She’s our guest!
Chorus: 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
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!
