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 ’round 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!

Lumiere and Chorus:
Beef ragout,
Cheese soufflé,
Pie and pudding “en flambé”
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

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!

Lumiere and 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
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!
Chorus:
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…

Chorus:
Enough! I’m done!

Lumiere and Chorus:
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!
