Right outside this lazy summer home note 1 You ain't got time to call your soul a critic, no Right outside the lazy gate Of winter's summer home Wondering where the nuthatch winter's Wings a mile long Just carried the bird away. Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world But the heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own Wake now discover that you are the song that the morning brings But the heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own.
There comes a redeemer and he slowly, too, fades away And there follows his wagon behind him that's loaded with clay And the seeds that were silent all burst into bloom and decay And night comes so quiet, its close on the heels of the day. Sometimes we live no particular way but our own And sometimes we visit your country and live in your home Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.
Long distance runner, what you standing there for? Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain. Almost ablaze, still you don't feel the heat note 4 It takes all you got just to stay on the beat You say it's a living, we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete If mercy's in business, I wish it for you More than just ashes when your dreams come true. Long distance runner, what you holding out for note 5 Caught in slow motion in a dash to the door The flame from your stage has now spread to the floor You gave all you had, why you want to give more?
Carve your name, carve your name in ice and wind Search for where, search for where the rivers end Or where the rivers start Do everything that's in you, you feel to be your part But never give your love my friend unto a foolish heart Unto a foolish heart. Dare to leap, leap from ledges high and wide Learn to speak, speak with wisdom like a child Directly to the heart Crown yourself the king of clowns or stand way back apart But never give your love my friend unto a foolish heart Unto a foolish heart.
Shun a friend, shun a brother and a friend Never look, never look around the bend Or check the weather chart Sign the Mona Lisa with a spray can, call it art But never give your love my friend unto a foolish heart Unto a foolish heart.
A foolish heart will call on you to toss your dreams away Then turn around and blame you for the way you went astray A foolish heart will cost you sleep and often make you curse A selfish heart is trouble, but a foolish heart is worse. Bite the hand, bite the hand that bakes your bread Dare to leap, where the angels fear to tread Till you are torn apart Stoke the fires of paradise with coals from hell to start But never give you love my friend unto a foolish heart Unto a foolish heart.

I lit out from Reno, I was trailed by twenty hounds note a Didn't get to sleep that night till the morning came around. Set out running but I take my time A friend of the devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep Tonight.
I ran into the devil babe, he loaned me twenty bills I spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills.

Abraham and Isaac digging on a well Mama come quick with the water witch spell Cool clear water where you can't never tell.

If I had the world to give I'd give it to you, long as you live Would you let it fall Or hold it in your arms? If I had a song to sing I'd sing it to you, long as you live Lullaby Or maybe a plain serenade. Wouldn't you laugh, dance and cry or be afraid At the change you made? I may not have the world to give to you But maybe I have a tune or two. Only if you let me be your world Could I ever give this world to you Could I ever give this world to you.

I spent a little time in the mountain Spent a little time on the hill I heard some say "better run away" Others say "better stand still". Now I don't know but I've been told It's hard to run with the weight of gold Other hand I heard it said It's just as hard with the weight of lead. Who can deny? It's not just a change in style One step done and another begun In I wonder how many miles? I spent a little time on the mountain Spent a little time on the hill Things went down we don't understand But I think in time we will.
Now I don't know but I was told In the heat of the sun a man died of cold Do we keep on coming or stand and wait With the sun so dark and the hour so late? You can't overlook the lack Jack Of any other highway to ride It's got no signs or dividing lines And very few rules to guide.

Lantern Jaw of Justice : Gaston has a strong and square jaw Large Ham : One need look no further than Gaston's performance in the pub during the song "Gaston" to be convinced of his desire to ham it up. Last-Second Word Swap : Occurs as Cogwsorth actually believes his is successfully keeping their enchantment hidden from Belle.
Potts: But if the master doesn't learn to control that temper, he'll never break the sp. Cogwsorth: as Belle enters Splendid to see you out and about, Mademoiselle!
Cogsworth: Irresponsible, devil-may-care, waxy eared, slack jawed Tropes M to N. Made of Iron : LeFou can get punched 10 feet and just get up and keep singing. Magic Mirror : Beast has one that serves as his only connection to the outside world; it functions like a typical Crystal Ball would. The user says "Show me X" and X appears. It later becomes important when Beast gives it to Belle just before she leaves. When the villagers later scoff at her story, she simply tells it "Show me the Beast!
Manipulative Bastard : Gaston is well aware of his popularity in the village, and in the end, he uses it to turn most of the male population of his town into an angry mob.
Mass "Oh, Crap! They're in Stunned Silence as Belle begs him to hold on, promising that they are together, and saying she loves him. Mean Boss : Gaston is completely abusive to LeFou, who seems to be the closest thing to his "best friend", and even forces LeFou to wait outside Belle's home in the snow for what seemed to be weeks, if not months.
Oddly, LeFou never complains. Meaningful Echo : "Please let insert person here go! I'll do anything! Interestingly, both times had people at the Beast's mercy, and both times resulted in an unusual act of kindness from him taking up Belle's offer and letting Gaston go. Everyone just calls her La Belle. Her name being Belle is an improvement. The Beast doesn't have a name there either.
Likewise, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Chip all have names relating to the objects they became with Chip being a reference to his state of being. Monsieur D'Arque, the asylum proprietor, certainly is dark and sinister. Philippe the horse's name is the French version of the name Philip, which means "friend of horses". Might Makes Right : Gaston certainly believes this. Why else would he storm Beast's castle but to prove that he's the best match for Belle? The villagers also get their own moment in the mob song: Mob song: We're fifty strong, and fifty Frenchmen can't be wrong!
Gary Trousdale : [in the commentary] We got to the end of the movie and realized " He doesn't have a name! Tropes O to P. Objectshifting : While the Enchantress's curse transformed the prince into a monstrous beast, it transformed his servants into Animate Inanimate Objects, including clocks, candelabras, tea sets, mops, wardrobes, musical instruments, and many others. Obviously Evil : Gaston is an Egomaniac Hunter dressed in red with long black hair and as he reaches his peak his hair becomes wild and messy.
Corrupt asylum director Monsieur D'Arque has skin that is a sickly green color and a gaunt face. Obviously Not Fine : Chip claims not to be sleepy to try to get a later bedtime, despite having trouble keeping his eyes open.
Off-Model : The Bimbettes have 3 different hair styles and 3 different color dresses, but in various scenes the colors of their dresses keep changing. In addition, their hairstyles are all the same at the end of the "Gaston" reprise. A few of Belle's scenes were done by a different animation team, giving her face a somewhat different, more rounded look.
It's probably most noticeable when she enters the bookshop in the opening song. Oh, Crap! Gaston grabs part of the castle and brandishes it like a club about to go for the kill. Then Belle announces her arrival. Beast is suddenly filled with the will to live, grabs the club and towers over Gaston, surprising him. When Gaston yells "It's over, Beast, Belle is mine! Right after stabbing the Beast when Gaston realizes he's about to fall off the roof having been previously spared that fate and can only scream in terror as he plummets to this death.
The Beast when he drives Belle out of the West Wing; after a moment he realizes what he's done - quite possibly scared away his only chance of breaking the spell - and he buries his face in his hand in despair. Belle is apprehensive when she meets the Beast for the first time, but when she asks him to come into the light and sees him properlyshe has Oh, Crap! Belle has one in the West Wing when the Beast finds her about to touch the rose.
Understandable, given that earlier he had specifically told her not to go there. As she's facing the wolves with a stick which quickly breaks, giving us a close-up of her panicked face right before a wolf lunges at her. A more lighthearted example occurs during the "Beauty and the Beast" number when the Beast realizes that Belle wants to dance with him and he doesn't know how.
Old Beggar Test : According to the prologue, the unnamed prince the future Beast refuses to let the woman enter in his castle and mocks her offering of a single rose. Unsurprisingly, she reveals herself to the Spoiled Bratscolds him, and as punishment, she bewitches the whole castle. Once Upon a Time : The film opens with a 'once upon a time' explanation of how the Prince was selfish and then was turned into the Beast by the beggar woman who asked him for shelter in exchange for a single rose, then turned into the enchantress when he kept refusing her.
The second half of the phrase includes "In a far away land", even though the movie makes it pretty clear early on that it's set in France. Of course, opening with "In 18th century France" wouldn't have fit nearly as well.
One-Man Army : The Beast single-handedly takes on a wolf pack and drives them away. He's also a tiny clock that can get wrecked easily. Yet there are times when he will bend or break the rules, or act contrary to his stick-in-the-mud approach. Despite arguing with Lumiere about breaking the rules for hosting Maurice, he assists the candelabra in opening up a passageway to the dungeons, for Belle to find her father.
That shows how much seeing Belle has invigorated him with hope. He agrees to give Belle a tour of the castle, despite the fact that she's not to be helped at all. She does flatter him, but he does seem to want to make her stay comfortable and was thrown off by her figuring out the castle was enchanted. In the climax, he sheds his dislike of Lumiere to rescue him from LeFou's torch. He also gives an Evil Laugh while armed to the teeth, showing a wild side.
Never underestimate a clock that can hold a pair of scissors to defend his castle, and his friends. Lumiere is so happily shocked by this that he gives Cogsworth a Smooth Of Victory when they send the invaders crawling out the door. The Beast is this way for most of the climax. He's too depressed to even notice that there are trespassers and invaders, rather than breaking out into his trademark rage.
Then when he sees Belle calling out for him, the Beast gets angry and starts fighting, but with cool logic and Combat Pragmatist rather than waving his claws at the nearest object in sight.
Even when he wins the fight, and Gaston begs for his life, the Beast's expression changes into shock that he doesn't want to kill this man that claims to own Belle, and puts him down. When he says Get Out! Our Nudity Is Different : Beast's bath scene; it's clear he's at his most naked here but since he's furry it also doubles as convenient censoring.
Pain-Powered Leap : Cogsworth slides down the stair banister and jabs LeFou in the butt with a pair of scissors, causing this to happen. Less than 20 seconds later, Lumiere spews a blast of fire from the top of his head at one of the nameless villagers who also gets launched into the airsaving the feather duster who was getting her "skirt" ripped out. Pet the Dog : The Beast learning to feed the birds in the "Something There" sequence is a crystal clear indication that he's no longer an anti-villain and is trying to be more kind and noble.
It's fur-trimmed. Pimped-Out Dress : Belle's gold dress is the most clearly pimped out; layered skirts, frills, etc. The green dress and pink dress were also likely made of very fine fabrics. Playing Hard to Get : Gaston tends to think Belle wants him and is just making him catch her, which suits both his ego and his hunting trait. Naturally, she's honestly not interested in him. Playing with Fire : Lumiere frequently lights and expands his flames, typically for emphasis.
Please, I Will Do Anything! Plucky Girl : Belle repeatedly refuses to submit to the Beast and only treats him better when he starts reforming. The Pollyanna : The servants are as desperate as the Beast for breaking the spell but they are also more optimistic and at least try to keep their lives as normal as they can. Politically Incorrect Villain : Gaston is shamelessly misogynistic towards Belle to go in hand with his overinflated ego, frowning upon the idea of a woman reading or thinking independently partially because he also disdains doing such things himself and seeing marriage to Belle as nothing more than a prize to be won.
Poor Communication Kills : When Belle goes to rescue her father, the Beast assumes she's leaving forever, and the ornaments are worried. Chip asks Belle, when he stows away in her bag, if they did something wrong. Before Belle can reassure him, the asylum people come. It's all but said that Belle would return, once she cleared the air with her father and got him medical care, as she tells the Beast of course she came back to save him.
After all, the Beast is her friend and she would have visited. Post-Victory Collapse : Immediately after fighting off the wolves, the Beast turns to Belle while panting, stands for a beat longer, then falls over onto his side in the snow. The Power of Love : To break the curse, Beast needs to learn to love another, and he has to earn their love in return. Pre-Asskicking One-Liner : When the villagers finally break into the castle, it's quiet and dark and LeFou picks up Lumiere in order to see. Lumiere suddenly yells, "NOW!
Prejudice Aesop : The moral is not to judge somebody by their appearance because the "beast" is actually a man under a curse. Pretty in Mink : They animators seem to like putting Belle in furs. Her wine-colored winter cape comes with white fur trim.
In The Enchanted Christmasshe is also seen in a scarlet jacket with white fur trim, and later a matching cape and skirt for when she goes out into the woods.
Primal Stance : The Beast is stuck in this pose for the first half of the movie; in fact it's kind of hard to tell just how tall he is because he spends so much time bent over. The first shot of Belle and the Beast standing face-to-face shows that while he's taller than her she can still look him directly in the eye.
The ballroom scene is one of the few times he's actually standing up straight and it becomes obvious that he completely dwarfs her. Gaston, who stands and walks upright, until near the end of the film, he reveals his evil self and starts to stand and walk like this. Prince Charming Wannabe : Gaston, towards Belle; he thinks he's a dashing and heroic suitor that will sweep her off her feet. She is less than impressed. No one provides the trope image like Gaston!
Prince Charmless : Beast was this before the curse and before Belle came into his life; lack of princely manners was the reason he was cursed in the first place. Gaston is more definitely this, but only Belle shows much awareness of it. Princesses Prefer Pink : Belle, who later becomes a princess, briefly wears a pink dress. Princesses Rule : Beast is called a prince, despite there seemingly being no king or queen to outrank him.
Product Displacement : Zig-zagged when Disney started altering the opening credits for the Remasters and Recuts. Promoted to Love Interest : In the stage musical, Cogsworth and the wardrobe are portrayed as a couple but are much more reserved about it than Lumiere and the duster. Proper Lady : For all the villagers thinking she is odd, Belle is well-mannered, sophisticated and has high morals.
Psychopathic Manchild : Gaston. He basically throws an extreme tantrum over not getting what he wanted and is willing to imprison Maurice in order to force Belle to comply with his wishes. Pun : "If it's not Baroque, don't fix it! He's strong enough to do that.
