It's a quiet village
Like the one before
Full of little people
Waking up to say:
Bonjour! Bonjour! Bonjour! )
There goes the baker with his tray, like always
The same old bread and rolls to
Ev'ry morning just the same
Since the morning that we came
To this poor provincial town
Good Morning, Belle!
Where are you off to?
The bookshop. I just finished the most wonderful story about a beanstalk
and an ogre and a -
That's nice. Marie! The baguettes! Hurry up! )
Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question
Dazed and distracted, can't you
Never part of any crowd'
Cause her head's up on some cloud
No denying she's a funny girl that
How is your fam'ly?
How is your wife?
I need six eggs
That's too expensive
There must be more than this provincial life
Good Morning. I've come to return the book I borrowed.
Oh, I couldn't put it down. Have you got anything new?
Ha Ha! Not since yesterday.
That's all right. I'll borrow . . . . . this one!
That one? But you've read it twice!
Well, it's my favorite! Far off places, daring sword fights, magic spells,
a prince in disguise -
If you like it all that much, it's yours!
Well, thank you. Thank you very much! )
Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she's feeling well
With a dreamy far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us
Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my fav'rite part because you'll
Here's where she meets Prince Charming
But she won't discover that it's
him 'til chapter three
Now it's no wonder that her name means "beauty"
Her looks have got no parallel
But behind that fair facade I'm afraid she's rather odd
Very diff'rent from the rest of
She's nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff'rent from the rest of
us is Belle
Wow! You didn't miss a shot, Gaston!
You're the greatest hunter in the
No beast alive stands a chance against you.
Ha ha ha! And no girl, for that
It's true, LeFou.
And I've got my sights set on that
Hm! The inventor's daughter?
She's the one - the lucky girl I'm going to marry.
But she's -
The most beautiful girl in town.
I know, but -
That makes her the best. And don't I deserve the best?
Well, of course! I mean you do, but - )
Right from the moment when I met her, saw her
I said she's gorgeous and I fell
Here in town there's only she
Who is beautiful as me
So I'm making plans to woo and marry
Look there he goes
Isn't he dreamy?
Oh he's so cute
Be still my heart I'm hardly breathing
He's such a tall, dark, strong and
You call this bacon?
What lovely grapes!
I'll get the knife
Please let me through!
This bread -
Those fish -
There must be more than this provincial life!
Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife!
Look there she goes
The girl is strange but special
A most peculiar mad'moiselle!
It's a pity and a sin
She doesn't quite fit in
'Cause she really is a funny girl
A beauty but a funny girl
She really is a funny girl
