"Gaston" is a song sung by Gaston, LeFou, and Gaston's buddies in Disney's 1991 animated film Beauty and the Beast. It features LeFou and the townsfolk singing Gaston's praises to cheer him up, which succeeds. The song is performed by Gaston's voice actor Richard White, LeFou's voice actor Jessie Corti, and a chorus as Gaston's buddies.

In 2017, Disney remade Beauty and the Beast as a live-action film. The song had the same story, but featured some additional lyrics. This one was performed by Gaston's actor Luke Evans, LeFou's actor Josh Gad, and extras as the bar patrons.

Lyrics

[Who does she think she is? That girl has tangled with the wrong man. No one says no to Gaston!]

[Heh, darn right.]

[Dismissed, rejected, publicly humiliated. Why, it's more than I can bear.]

[More beer?]

[What for? Nothing helps. I'm disgraced.]

[Who, you? Never! Gaston, you've got to pull yourself together.]

Gosh, it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in town as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why!

No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston
For there's no man in town half as manly!
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on!

No one's been like Gaston
A king pin like Gaston
No one's got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!
My what a guy, that Gaston!
Give five "hurrahs!" Give twelve "hip-hips!"
Gaston is the best and the rest is all drips!

No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston
In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston!
For there's no one as burly and brawny
As you see, I've got biceps to spare
Not a bit of him's scraggly or scrawny.
That's right!
And every last inch of me's covered with hair!

No one hits like Gaston
Matches wits like Gaston
In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston
I'm especially good at expectorating! Ptoooie!
Ten points for Gaston!

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs
Every morning to help me get large
And now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs
So I'm roughly the size of a barge

No one shoots like Gaston
Makes those beauts like Gaston
Then goes tromping around
Wearing boots like Gaston!
I use antlers in all of my decorating!

My what a guy!
Gaston!

[Who does she think she is? That girl has tangled with the wrong man. No on says no to Gaston!]

[Heh, darn right.]

[Dismissed, rejected, publicly humiliated. Why, it's more than I can bear.]

[More beer?]

[What for? Nothing helps. I'm disgraced.]

[Who, you? Never! Gaston, you've got to pull yourself together.]

Gosh, it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in town as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why!

No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston
For there's no man in town half as manly!
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on!

No one's been like Gaston
A king pin like Gaston
No one's got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!
My what a guy, that Gaston!
Give five "hurrahs!" Give twelve "hip-hips!"
Gaston is the best and the rest is all drips!

No one fights like Gaston

For there's no one as burly and brawny

Then goes tromping around
Wearing boots like Gaston!
I use antlers in all of my decorating!

Say it again!
Who's a man among men?
And then say it once more
Who's that hero next door?
Who's a super success?
Don't you know? Can't you guess?
Ask his fans and his five hangers-on
There's just one guy in town
Who's got all of it down...

And his name's G-A-S... T...
G-A-S-T-E...
G-A-S-T-O... ohh, ow...

Gaston!

Gosh, it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man in town as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why!

No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's
For there's no man in town half as manly!
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on

Who plays darts like Gaston
Who breaks hearts like Gaston
Who's much more than the sum of his parts like Gaston?
As a specimen, yes, I'm intimidating!
My what a guy, that Gaston!

I needed encouragement--thank you, LeFou!
Well, there's no one as easy to bolster as you! ...Too much?
Yep.

No one fights like Gaston
Douses lights like Gaston
In a wrestling match nobody bites like Gaston!

When I hunt I sneak up with my quiver
And beasts of the field say a prayer
First I carefully aim for the liver
Then I shoot from behind
Is that fair?
I don't care.

No one hits like Gaston
Matches wits like Gaston
LeFou: In a spitting match nobody spits like Gaston
I'm especially good at expectorating! *spits*
Ten points for Gaston!

When I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs
Every morning to help me get large
And now that I'm grown I eat five dozen eggs
So I'm roughly the size of a barge!

Who has brains like Gaston
Entertains like Gaston
Who can make up these endless refrains like Gaston?
I use antlers in all of my decorating

Say it again!
Who's a man among men?
Who's a super success?
Don't you know? Can't you guess?
Ask his fans and his five hangers-on
There's just one guy in town
Who's got all of it down...

And his name's G-A-S... T...
I believe there's another T...
It just occurred to me that I'm illiterate and I've never actually had to spell it out loud before...

Gaston!
