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.


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...
