"Be Our Guest" is a song written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman for Walt Disney Pictures' thirtieth animated feature film Beauty and the Beast. Originally recorded by American actor Jerry Orbach and English actress Angela Lansbury in their film roles as the characters Lumière and Mrs. Potts, "Be Our Guest" is an up-tempo Broadway and cabaret-style song. In the film, the song is performed in the style of a large-scale musical number by the castle's staff of enchanted servants to Belle in an attempt to make her feel welcome.

"Be Our Guest" has enjoyed mostly positive reception from critics, many of whom described it as one of the highlights of the film and its soundtrack. The song was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and an Academy Award in the same category, but lost both to the title song from the film.

Lyrics

Lumière:
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 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 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!

Lumière and Chorus:
Beef ragout,
Cheese soufflé,
Pie and pudding "en flambé"
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

Chorus:
And it's all in perfect taste
That you can bet

Come on and lift your glass
You've won your own free pass
To be our guest

Lumière:
If you're stressed
It's fine dining we suggest!

Lumière and Chorus:
Be our guest!
Be our guest!
Be our guest!

Lumière:
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!
Chorus:
She's our guest!
Mrs. Potts:
She's our guest!
Chorus:

Chorus:
Be our guest
Be our guest
Our command is your request
It's ten 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

Lumière and chorus:
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!

Not so long ago, sir, this was our career
Light the chandelier
Ah, what atmosphere!
Serving you, we can recapture yesteryear
Raise the lid
Let's see what have we here
Oh, my dear

This is fish, this is not
But you'll like it quite a lot
Slice it thickly, eat it quickly
It's much better when it's hot
Try the bread! Try the soup!
When the croutons loop-de-loop
It's a treat for any diner
Don't believe me? Ask the china

Singing pork, dancing veal
What an entertaining meal
How could anyone be gloomy or depressed?
We'll make you shout, "Encore!"
And send us out for more!
So, be our guest!
Be our guest!

Background

Originally, Beauty and the Beast, under the direction of Richard Purdum, was not intended to be a musical. Then-studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg made the decision to turn the film into a Broadway-style musical similar to The Little Mermaid (1989), Disney's previous animated film, after he, displeased with the film's initial story reel, ordered the film scrapped and restarted from scratch. As a result, Purdum resigned, and first-time feature film directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale replaced him.

In lieu of the Academy Award-winning success of The Little Mermaid, Katzenberg asked the The Little Mermaid songwriting duo of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken to write the songs for and score Beauty and the Beast. At first Ashman, who was at the time writing songs with Menken for a recently pitched film idea called Aladdin, was reluctant to join the struggling film project, but eventually agreed.

The song was originally written by Ashman and Menken to be sung by the enchanted objects to Maurice instead of Belle. However, story artist Bruce Woodside felt that the song would make more sense if it was sung to Belle, the main character, as opposed to secondary character Maurice, and directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale agreed. Despite the fact that the scene was already near completion, a costly and timely effort was made to re-script and animate the scene and re-write the song to incorporate Belle. A clip of Angela Lansbury recording Mrs. Potts' lines in the original version of the song can be seen on the Beauty and the Beast trailer featured on the 1991 VHS release of The Jungle Book.

Trivia

  • In one scene, the plates make a parody of the Eiffel Tower, which is historically inaccurate (it wasn't yet built in the time in which the movie takes place).
  • This song shares the same tune with the song "Les Poissons", sung by the chef in the move The Little Mermaid.
  • This song was the title song for the tape, Disney Sing Along Songs: Be Our Guest.
  • In the European Spanish dub, this song is called Que Festín! which means What a Feast!
  • The original film and Broadway versions are probably performed similarly to the song, "The Three Caballeros" in many ways.
    • They are both sung by well-cultured characters who sing strong at the end (Lumiere, Panchito Pistoles) accompanied by special effects. The singers also have best friends who tend to join in the song and dance (Cogsworth, Jose Carioca).

Composition

"Be Our Guest" was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, and has a length of three minutes and forty-four seconds. According to MusicNotes, "Be Our Guest" is a lively Broadway musical-style number written in common time in the key of B♭ major. Orbach's vocal range spans roughly three octaves, from F3 to D♭6. Drawing its influence from musical theatre and French music, its instrumentation is heavily reliant on strings, winds, keyboards, and various band-like percussion instruments.

The melody is almost exactly the same as a melody from the first movement of Mahler's Third Symphony.       

Reception

Critics have praised "Be Our Guest," many calling it a highlight of the film and its soundtrack. Tavia Hobart of Allmusic, in review of the film's soundtrack, wrote, "While not as good as the Little Mermaid score, the [Beauty and the Beast soundtrack] has its moments, such as 'Be Our Guest.'" Drew Taylor of IndieWire described the song as "show-stopping." In review of the film's 2001 Special Edition soundtrack, Brad Green of Urban Cinefile gave the song a fairly positive review, calling it"...a spark of Gallic vaudeville that lights a flame to both Maurice Chevalier and Yves Montand." Green continued, "...but it doesn’t stand above fine songs like 'Something There,' or 'Human Again'.

"Be Our Guest" was nominated for several awards. The song was one of the three from Beauty and the Beast that were nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 64th Academy Awards in 1992, alongside "Belle" and the film's title song, "Beauty and the Beast." Ultimately, "Be Our Guest" lost to "Beauty and the Beast." "Be Our Guest" was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song the same year, but again lost to the film's title song.          

Covers and parodies

Mr. Burns parodied the song as "See My Vest" for "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds", a 1995 episode of The Simpsons.

In the Animaniacs parody episode "Cutie and the Beast", Yakko and Wakko Warner sing a version entitled "She's a Pest."

In 1995, Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Chipettes covered the song for their Disney-themed album When You Wish Upon a Chipmunk.

An Oscar-themed rendition of the song was performed by Seth MacFarlane at the 85th Academy Awards.

Stage and live versions

Be Our Guest routine

"Be Our Guest" performed at Walt Disney World in September 2009.

Actor Jerry Orbach performed "Be Our Guest" live in character as Lumiere at the 64th Academy Awards in 1992. Less than two years later, "Be Our Guest" was featured as a musical number in the now-closed Broadway adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, originally performed by Gary Beach as Lumiere and Beth Fowler as Mrs. Potts.

The song features in the live-action film adaptation, with the only lyrical difference being that Lumiere sings "Too long we've been rusting" where he sang "Ten years" in the original.
