The Mob Song (Gaston's Plan's Success) -Beauty and the Beast

"The Mob Song" (or "Kill the Beast"), is a song featured in the 1991 Disney animated film, Beauty and the Beast. It is the third song (fifth in the musical) to be sung by Gaston, the main villain in the movie.


Gaston: The Beast will make off with your children! He'll come after them in the night!

Belle:: No!

Gaston: We're not safe 'til his head is mounted on my wall! I say we kill the Beast!

Mob: Kill him!

Man 1: We're not safe until he's dead

Man 2: He'll come stalking us at night

Woman: Set to sacrifice our children to his monstrous appetite!

Man 3: He'll wreak havoc on our village if we let him wander free

Gaston: So it's time to take some action, boys It's time to follow me!

Through the mist, through the woods

Through the darkness and the shadows

It's a nightmare, but it's one exciting ride

Say a prayer, then we're there

At the drawbridge of a castle

And there's something truly terrible inside

It's a beast!

He's got fangs, razor sharp ones!

Massive paws, killer claws for the feast

Hear him roar! See him foam!

But we're not coming home 'til he's dead

Good and dead! Kill the Beast!

Belle: No! I won't let you do this!

Gaston: If you're not with us, you're against us. Bring the old man!

Maurice: Get your hands off me!

Gaston: We can't have them running off to warn the creature!

Belle: Let us out!

Gaston: We'll rid the village of this Beast! Who's with me?

Male Mob Member #1: I am!

Male Mob Member #2:: I am!

Male Mob Member #3: I am!

Mob: Light your torch!

Mount your horse!

Gaston: Screw your courage to the sticking place!

Mob: We're counting on Gaston to lead the way!

Through a mist, through a wood

Where within a haunted castle

Something's lurking that you don't see every day!

It's a beast!

One as tall as a mountain

We won't rest 'til he's good and deceased

Sally forth!

Tally ho!

Grab your sword!

Grab your bow!

Praise the Lord and here we go!

Gaston: We'll lay siege to the castle and bring back his head!

Belle: I have to warn the Beast. This is all my fault. Oh, Papa, what are we going to do?

Maurice: Now, now, we'll think of something.

Mob: We don't like

What we don't understand

In fact it scares us

And this monster is mysterious at least

Bring your guns!

Bring your knives!

Save your children and your wives

We'll save our village and our lives

We'll kill the Beast!

[Cut to Beast's castle]

Cogsworth: I knew it. I knew it was foolish to get our hopes up.

Lumiere: Maybe it would have been better if she had never come at all.

[Sultan barking]

Lumiere: Could it be?

Mrs. Potts Is it she?

Lumiere: Sacre Bleu! Invaders!

Cogsworth: Encroachers!

Mrs. Potts: And they have the mirror!

Cogsworth: Warn the master. If it's a fight they want, we'll be ready for them. Who's with me? (Door slams) Hey!


Gaston: Take whatever booty you can find. But remember, the Beast is mine!

Castleware: Hearts ablaze

Banners high

We go marching into battle

Unafraid although the danger just increased

Mob: Raise your flag!

Sing the song!

Here we come, we're fifty strong

And fifty Frenchmen can't be wrong

Let's kill the Beast!

Mrs. Potts: Pardon me, master.

Beast: Leave me in peace.

Mrs. Potts: But sir, the castle is under attack!

Mob: Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!

Lumiere: This isn't working! 

Fifi: Oh, Lumiere. We must do something.

Lumiere: Wait, I Know!

Mob: Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!

Mrs. Potts: What shall we do, master?

Beast: It doesn't matter now. Just let them come.

Mob: Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast! </poem>
