Something There

"Something There" is a romantic love song featured in Beauty and the Beast. It is sung offscreen by Belle (Paige O'Hara) and the Beast (Robby Benson), accompanied by Lumière (Jerry Orbach), Cogsworth (David Ogden Stiers), and Mrs. Potts (Angela Lansbury).

The song was composed by Alan Menken, and lyrics were provided by the late Howard Ashman.

Plot Edit

The song is performed soon after the Beast saves Belle from the wolf attack, and their initially shady relationship begins to blossom into a friendship. Small hints of romance are beginning to be seen as well.

The lyrical content of the song strongly emphasizes upon the fact that Belle and the Beast are beginning to fall in love. The main characters are beginning to think maybe something was absent within the first few hours Belle and the Beast met, causing them to clash. But now that the "something" is here, the love is flowing in a more stable pattern. 

Lyrics Edit


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


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


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


Well, who'd have thought?

Mrs. Potts:

Well, bless my soul


Well, who'd have known?

Mrs. Potts:

Well, who indeed?


And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?

Mrs. Potts:

It's so peculiar.

Lumière, Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth:

We'll wait and see, a few days more

There may be something there that wasn't there before


Perhaps there's something there

That wasn't there before

Mrs. Potts:

There may be something there that wasn't there before
