Be Our Guest is the twelfth song of Beauty and the Beast. It is performed by the castle's enchanted staff as a large-scale musical number to Belle in an attempt to make her feel welcome.

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, 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? 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 soufflé
Pie and pudding, en flambé
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!

[ENSEMBLE]
And it's all in perfect taste
That you can bet

[LUMIERE]
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!

[ENSEMBLE]
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
—Eh, Cogsworth?
Suddenly those good old days are gone

Too long, 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!
Sake's 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!

[ENSEMBLE]
She's our guest!

[MRS. POTTS]
She's our guest!

[ENSEMBLE]
She's our guest!

[ENSEMBLE]
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

[ENSEMBLE]
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!
