(Menken, Ashman)

"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 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 souffl¨¦!
Pie and pudding en flamb¨¦!

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 out guest!

If you're stressed
It's fine dining we suggest

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 entr¨¦e
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 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

(Mrs. Potts)
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! 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!

Be our guest! Be our guest!
Our command is your request
It's ten years since we 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!
