Something There

Belle:There's something sweet
And almost kind 
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
But 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 there:
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...
