  • 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 a 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
    Beef ragout
    Cheese souffle
    Pie and pudding "en flambe"
    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 out guest
    If you're stressed
    It's 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
    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!
    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 shoeing
    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
    Our command is your request
    It's ten years since we 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
    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 Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
