Lumiere be our guest
Be Our Guest is a song sung by Lumiere in the 1991 feature film Beauty and the Beast It is written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman. In the song, Lumiere and the other animated housewares welcome Belle to and present her with her dinner.


Italicized words are spoken.

Lumiere: Ma cherie 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 orderves

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 and Dishes: 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

Cups:: And it's all in perfect taste

That you can be!

Lumiere and Dishes: Come on and lift your glass

You've won your own free pass

To be our guest

Lumiere: If you're stressed

It's fine dining we suggest

Lumiere and Dishes: 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 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!

Dishes: She's our guest!

Mrs Potts: She's our guest

Dishes: 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 and Dishes: Course by course

One by one

'Til you shout, "Enough! I'm done!"

And 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


Be... Our...
