Be Our Guest (From "Beauty and the Beast") Lyrics


Be Our Guest - The London Theatre Orchestra & Cast

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

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 doeuvres

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 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

Beef ragout

Cheese souffle

Pie and pudding en flambe

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

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

If you're stressed

It's fine dining we suggest

Be our guest

Be our guest

Be our guest

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


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


She's our guest

She's our guest

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

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
