Something There (from "Beauty and the Beast")

Music by Alan Menken | Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice

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

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?
Well, bless my soul
Well, who'd have known?
Well, who indeed?
And who'd have guessed they'd come together on their own?
It's so peculiar. Wait and see

We'll wait and see
A few days more
There may be something there that wasn't there before
You know, perhaps there's something there that wasn't
there before
There may be something there that wasn't there before


From the musical "Beauty and the Beast" (1991).
