"A Guy Like You" is a song featured in Disney's 1996 feature film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It is the gargoyles' chance to sing, assuring Quasimodo that Esmeralda loves him in the same way he loves her in a fun, Broadway-style musical number. Placing a comedic song after a dark, intense scene such as "Hellfire" and the virtual destruction of Paris is a common technique allowing the audience to release tension in an appropriate time, thus allowing the climax to be appropriately dramatic for them. In Der Glöckner von Notre Dame, the song is akin to the movie, only the gargoyles use more French words and phases into the song instead of making visual gags.

Lyrics

Hugo: Paris, the city of lovers
Is glowing this evening
True, that's because it's on fire
But still, there's "l'amour"
Somewhere out there in the night
Her heart is also alight
And I know the guy she just might
Be burning for
A guy like you
She's never known, kid
A guy like you
A girl does not
Meet every day
You've got a look
That's all your own, kid
Could there be two...?
Victor and Laverne: ...Like you?
All Three: No way!
Hugo: Those other guys
That she could dangle
All look the same
From every boring
Point of view
You're a surprise
From every angle
Mon Dieu above
She's gotta love
A guy like you
Victor: A guy like you
Gets extra credit
Because it's true
You've got a certain
Something more
Hugo: You're aces, kid
Laverne: You see that face
You don't forget it
Victor and Laverne: Want something new?
Hugo: That's you
All Three: For sure!
Laverne: We all have gaped
At some Adonis
Victor: But then we crave a meal
More nourishing
To chew
Hugo: And since you've shaped
Like a croissant is
All Three: No question of
She's gotta love
A guy like you!
Laverne: Call me a hopeless romatic
But Quasi, I feel it
Victor: She wants you so, any moment
She'll walk through that door
All Three: For
Hugo: A guy so swell
Victor and Laverne: A guy like you
Hugo: With all you bring her
Victor and Laverne: I tell you Quasi
Hugo: A fool could tell
Victor and Laverne: There never was
Hugo: It's why she fell
Victor and Laverne: Another, was he?
Hugo: For you-know-who
Victor and Laverne: From king to serf
To the bourgeoisie
Hugo: You ring the bell
Victor and Laverne: We notice every string there
All Three: You're the bell ringer!
When she wants ooh-la-la
Then she wants you-la-la
She will discover, guy
You're one heck of a guy
Who wouldn't love a guy
Like you?
Hugo: You got a lot
Victor: The rest have not
Hugo: So she's gotta love
A guy like...
All three: ...you!

ANTOINE:
Paris, the city of lovers
Is glowing this evening
True, that's because it's on fire
But still, there's "l'amour"
Somewhere out there in the night
Her heart is also a light
And I know the guy she just might
Be burning for

A guy like you
She's never known, boy
A guy like you
Has charms a girl has rarely shown
You've got a look
That's all your own, kid
Could there be two?

GARGOYLES:
Like you?
Mais non!

ANTOINE:
Those other guys
That she could dangle
All look the same
From every boring point of view
You're a surprise
From every angle
Mon Dieu above
She's gotta love
A guy like you

CHARLES:
A guy like you
Gets extra credit
For having, so to speak
His own unique allure

LONI:
You see that face
You don't forget it

GARGOYLES:
Want something new?

ANTOINE:
That's you

GARGOYLES:
Bien sur!

LONI:
We all have gaped
At some Adonis

CHARLES:
But then we crave a meal
More nourishing to chew

ANTOINE:
And since you've shaped
Like a croissant is

GARGOYLES:
No question of
She's gotta love
A guy like you!

LONI:
Sometimes the truth can be cruel,
Cheri, But let's face it

CHARLES:
There's no dispute
about who is the cutest of us

GARGOYLES:
Thus…
This mademoiselle

QUASIMODO:
My dear Miss E.

GARGOYLES:
What joy you bring her

QUASIMODO:
So sweet and shy like

GARGOYLES:
A fool could tell

QUASIMODO:
I'm sure that she

GARGOYLES:
It's why she fell

QUASIMODO:
Would like what I like

GARGOYLES:
For you-know-who

QUASIMODO:
And Mon Ami,

GARGOYLES:
You ring the bell

QUASIMODO
I am a guy like you know who

GARGOYLES
You're the bell ringer!
When she wants oo-la-la
Then she wants you la-la
She will discover why
You're one prince of a guy
Who wouldn't love a guy
Like you?

QUASIMODO
I’ve got a lot
The rest have not
So she's gotta love
A guy like me!
