Something There is a song sung by Belle, the Beast, Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts in the 1991 feature film Beauty and the Beast. The song was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman. The song describes the budding relationship between Belle and the Beast.


Belle: There's something sweet

And almost kind

But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined

But now he's dear,

And so unsure

I wonder why I didn't see it there before

Beast: She glanced this way

I thought I saw

And when we touched she didn't shudder at my paw

No it can't be,

I'll just ignore

But then she's never looked at me that way before.

Belle: New and a bit alarming

Who'd have ever thought that this could be?

True that he's no Prince Charming

But there's something in him that I simply didn't see

Lumiere: Well, who'd have thought?

Mrs Potts: Well, bless my soul

Cogsworth: Well, who'd have known?

Mrs Potts: Well, who indeed?

Lumiere: And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?

Mrs Potts: It's so peculiar.

Lumiere, Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth: mWe'll wait and see, a few days more

There may be something there that wasn't there before

Cogsworth: Perhaps there's something there

That wasn't there before

Chip: (Speaking) What?

Mrs Potts: There may be something there that wasn't there before.

Chip: (speaking) What's there, mama?

Mrs. Potts: (speaking) Sh! I'll tell you when you're older.
