Ma chere 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 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 dinner here is never second best
go on, unfold your menu, take a glance then you'll

be our guest, oui, our guest, be our guest

beef ragout, cheese soufflé
pie and pudding en flambé
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
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, if you're stressed
its fine dining we suggest,

be our guest, be our guest, be our guest!

life is so unnerving
for a servant who's not serving
he's not whole without a soul to wait upon
as, 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

it's a guest it's a guest
sakes alive, we'll be blessed
wines been poured and thank the Lord
I've had the napkins freshly pressed
with dessert, she'll want tea
and my dear that 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, she's our guest,
she's our guest, she's our guest
be our guest! be our guest! be our guest

Be our guest! be our guest!
our command is your request
it's been years since we've had anybody here
and were obsessed, with you meal, with your ease
yes, indeed, we aim to please
while the candlelight's still glowing
let us help you, well keep going
course by course, one by one
till you shout, enough I'm done
then well 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!
