Be Our Guest
Music by Alan Menken Lyrics by Howard Ashman

Lumiere
Be our guest! Be our guest!
Put our service to the test
Tie a napkin round you 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, it's delicious
Don't believe me? As 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
We tell jokes, I do tricks
With my fellow candlesticks

Flatware
And it's all in perfect tast, that you can bet!
Come on and lift your glass
You've won your own free pass to Be our guest!

Lumiere
If your stressed
It's fine dining we suggest

All
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 or depressed?
We'll make you shout encore
And send us out for more
So be our guest, be our guest
Be our guest

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 warn, 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 ups-a-daisy!

All
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

All
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!
