Be Our Guest

This song is by Jerry Orbach, features Angela Lansbury and appears on the Disney soundtrack Beauty and the Beast (1991).

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 d'oeuvres
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 & Chorus
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

Lumiere & Chorus
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!

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

She's our guest

Mrs. Potts
She's our guest

She's our guest

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

Lumiere & Chorus
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
