Something There lyrics

Album: Beauty and the Beast

BELLE
There's something sweet
And almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
And now he's dear, and so unsure
I wonder why I didn't see it there before
MME. DE LA GRANDE BOUCHE
Come along dearie.
Let's get you off those wet things.
BEAST
She glanced this way
I thought I saw
And when we touched she didn't shudder at my paw
No it can't be, I'll just ignore
But then she's never looked at me that way before
BEAST
Belle, I have something to show you.
But first, you have to close your eyes.
It's a surprise!
BELLE
May I open them?
BEAST
Alright, alright. Now!
BELLE
I can't believe it!
I've never seen so many books in my whole life!
BEAST
You like it?
BELLE
It's wonderful!
BEAST
It's yours!
BELLE
New and a bit alarming
Who'd have ever thought that this could be?
True that he's no Prince Charming
But there's something in him that I simply didn't see
(spoken)
Oh, this is one of my favorites!
It's "King Arthur."
Have you ever read it?
BEAST
No.
BELLE
You don't know what you're missing.
I'd love to read this again.
Wait...you can read this first.
BEAST
No, that's alright
BELLE
No, really, you read it
BEAST
Oh, no, you...
BELLE
No, you
BEAST
No! I can't...
BELLE
You never learned to read?
BEAST
Only a little, and long ago
BELLE
Well, it just so happens that this is the perfect book to read aloud. Come here, sit by me
LUMIERE
Well, who'd have thought?
MRS. POTTS
Well, bless my soul
COGSWORTH
Well, who'd have known?
MRS. POTTS
Well, who indeed?
LUMIERE
And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?
MRS. POTTS
It's so peculiar. Wait and see
LUMIERE AND COGSWORTH
We'll wait and see
ALL THREE
A few days more
There may be something there that wasn't there before
COGSWORTH
Perhaps there's something there
That wasn't there before
CHIP
What?
MRS. POTTS
There may be something there that wasn't there before
CHIP
What's there, Mama?
MRS. POTTS
Ssh. I'll tell you when you're older.
Come along now. Let's give them some privacy...
CHIP
Mama?
MRS. POTTS
Yes, Chip
CHIP
Will I ever get to be a boy again?
MRS. POTTS
I hope so
CHIP
When will I know?
MRS. POTTS
Soon. If it's to be. It will be very soon now. Come along, son.
BELLE
Knowing now, that this was indeed the legendary sword called "Excalibur," Arthur tried to pull it from the stone. He tried
once to no avail. He tried a second time, but still, he could not pull it out. Then, for the third time, Arthur drew forth the
sword...
BEAST
So that must mean he's the king!
BELLE
Wait and see
BEAST
I never knew books could do that
BELLE
Do what?
BEAST
Take me away from this place, make me forget for a little while
BELLE
Forget?
BEAST
Who I...What I am...
BELLE
We have something in common, you know
BEAST
What is that?
BELLE
In the town where I come from, the people think I'm odd
BEAST
You?
BELLE
So, I know how it feels to be...different. And I know how lonely that can be
BELLE
For the third time, Arthur drew forth the sword, and there arose from the people a great shout. Arthur is king.
BEAST
I told you so...
