"Me" is a song from the stage musical adaptation of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. It features Gaston trying to convince Belle to accept his marriage proposal.
It was performed originally by Burke Moses as Gaston and Susan Egan as Belle.
You've been dreaming just one dream
Nearly all your life
Hoping, scheming, just one theme:
Will you be a wife?
Will you be some he-man's property?
Good news! That he-man's me!
This equation, girl plus man
Doesn't just help you
On occasion, women can
Have their uses too
Mainly to extend the fam'ly tree
Pumpkin, extend with me!
We'll be raising sons galore
Each built six foot four!
Each one stuffed with ev'ry Gaston gene!
(I'm not hearing this!)
You'll be keeping house with pride!
Each day gratified
That you are a part of this idyllic scene.
[Picture this: a rustic hunting lodge,
My latest kill roasting over the fire,
My little wife massaging my feet, while
The little ones play on the floor with the dogs.
Oh, we'll have six or seven!]
[No, Belle! Strapping boys...like me!]
I can see that we will share
All that love implies
We shall be a perfect pair
Rather like my thighs
You are face to face with destiny!
All roads lead to...
The best things in life are...
All's well that ends with me!
Escape me? There's no way
Certain as "Do, Re,"
Belle, when you marry...
[So Belle, what will it be?
Is it "Yes," or is it "Oh, yes?"]
[I...I just don't deserve you!]
[But thanks for asking.]
- The song was featured on the musical's soundtrack.
