  • Tale as old as time
    True as it can be
    Barely even friends
    Then somebody bends
    Unexpectedly

    Just a little change
    Small to say the least
    Both a little scared
    Neither one prepared

    Beauty and the beast

    Ever just the same
    Ever a surprise
    Ever as before and ever just as sure as the sun will rise

    Ever just the same
    Ever a surprise
    Ever as before
    Ever just as sure
    As the sun will rise

    Tale as old as time
    Tune as old as song
    Bittersweet and strange
    Finding you can change
    Learning you were wrong

    Certain as the sun
    Certain as the sun
    Rising in the east
    Tale as old as time
    Song as old as rhyme
    Beauty and the beast

    Tale as old as time
    Song as old as rhyme
    Beauty and the beast
