Belle


BELLE

Little town,
It's a quiet village.
Ev'ry day
Like the one before.
Little town
Full of little people
Waking up to say:

ARISTOCRATIC LADY

Bonjour!

 

FISH MAN

Bonjour!

 

EGG MAN

Bonjour!

 

SAUSAGE CURL GIRL
Bonjour!

 

BAKER

Bonjour!

BELLE

There goes the baker with his tray, like always,
The same old bread and rolls to sell.
Ev'ry morning just the same
Since the morning that we came
To this poor provincial town.

BAKER

Good Morning, Belle!

BELLE

Morning, monsieur.

BAKER

Where are you off to?

BELLE

The bookshop. I just finished the most wonderful story about a beanstalk and an ogre and -

BAKER

That's nice. Marie!
The baguettes!
Hurry up!

ARISTOCRATIC LADY & LADY W/CANE

Look there she goes that girl is strange, no question.
Dazed and distracted, can't you tell?

LADY W/BABY & SAUSAGE CURL GIRL

Never part of any crowd,

CANDLE MAN & FISH MAN

'Cause her head's up on some cloud.

VILLAGERS

No denying she's a funny girl, that Belle.

HAT SELLER
Bonjour!

SAUSAGE CURL GIRL
Good day!

HAT SELLER
How is your fam'ly?

MILKMAID
Bonjour!

SHEPHERD GIRL
Good day!

MILKMAID
How is your wife?

LADY W/CANE
I need six eggs!

ARISTOCRATIC LADY
That's too expensive!

BELLE

There must be more than this provincial life!

BOOKSELLER

Ah, Belle.

BELLE

Good morning. I've come to return the book I borrowed.

BOOKSELLER

Finished already?

BELLE

Oh, I couldn't put it down. Have you got anything new?

BOOKSELLER

Not since yesterday.

BELLE

That's all right. I'll borrow this one!

BOOKSELLER

That one? But you've read it twice!

BELLE

Well, it's my favorite! Far off places, daring sword fights, magic spells, a prince in disguise...

BOOKSELLER

If you like it all that much... it's yours!

BELLE

But sir!

BOOKSELLER

I insist.

BELLE

Well, thank you! Thank you very much!

VILLAGERS

Look there she goes. That girl is so peculiar.
I wonder if she's feeling well

 

FEMALE VILLAGERS

With a dreamy, far-off look

 

MALE VILLAGERS

And her nose stuck in a book,

 

VILLAGERS

What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle.

BELLE

Oh... isn't this amazing?
It's my fav'rite part because... you'll see.
Here's where she meets Prince Charming,
But she won't discover that it's him
'Til chapter three!

ARISTOCRATIC LADY

Now it's no wonder that her name means "Beauty".
Her looks have got no parallel.

HAT SELLER
But behind that fair facade
I'm afraid she's rather odd.

EGG MAN

Very diff'rent from the rest of us.

MORE VILLAGERS

She's nothing like the rest of us
Yes, diff'rent from the rest of us is Belle!

LEFOU

You didn't miss a shot, Gaston. You're the greatest hunter in the whole world!

GASTON

I know.

LEFOU

No beast alive stands a chance against you. And no girl, for that matter.

GASTON

It's true, Lefou. And I've got my sights set on that one.

LEFOU

The inventor's daughter?

GASTON

She's the one - the lucky girl I'm going to marry.

LEFOU

But she's -

GASTON

The most beautiful girl in town.

LEFOU

I know, but -

GASTON

And don't I deserve the best?

LEFOU

Well, of course you do!

GASTON

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 Belle.

SILLY GIRLS

Look there he goes!
Isn't he dreamy?
Monsieur Gaston!
Oh he's so cute!
Be still my heart!
I'm hardly breathing!
He's such a tall, dark, strong and handsome brute!

LADY W/BABY
Bonjour!

GASTON

Pardon.

BELLE

Good day.

LADY W/CANE
Mais oui!

ARISTOCRATIC LADY
You call this bacon?

MILKMAID
What lovely grapes!

BAKER
Some cheese.

LADY W/CANE
Ten yards!

FISH MAN
One pound.

GASTON

'scuse me!

BUTCHER
I'll get the knife.

GASTON

Please let me through!

LADY W/BABY
This bread...

SAUSAGE CURL GIRL
Those fish...

LADY W/BABY
It's stale!


SAUSAGE CURL GIRL

They smell!

MALE VILLAGERS
Madame's mistaken.

FEMALE VILLAGERS

Well, maybe so.

VILLAGERS
Good morning!
Oh, good morning!

BELLE

There must be more than this provincial life!

GASTON

Just watch, I'm going to make Belle my wife!

VILLAGERS

Look there she goes,
The girl who's strange but special.
A most peculiar mad'moiselle!

FEMALE VILLAGERS

It's a pity and a sin.

MALE VILLAGERS

She doesn't quite fit in.

VILLAGERS

'Cause she really is a funny girl,
A beauty but a funny girl.
She really is a funny girl,
That Belle!
