"The Mob Song", also referred to as "Kill the Beast" and "Gaston's Plan's Success", is a song sung by Gaston, LeFou, and an angry mob in Disney's 1991 animated film Beauty and the Beast. It features Gaston calling to arms the villagers to kill the Beast, simply because his appearance is frightening and they do not understand him. The song is performed by Gaston's voice actor Richard White, LeFou's voice actor Jessie Corti, and choruses as the mob and the servants.

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 mob and servants.

Lyrics

We're not safe until he's dead
He'll come stalking us at night
Set to sacrifice our children to his monstrous appetite!
He'll wreak havoc on our village if we let him wander free
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!

[We'll rid the village of this Beast! Who's with me?]

[I am!
I am!
I am!]

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!

[We'll lay siege to the castle and bring back his head!]

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!

[Take whatever booty you can find. But remember, the Beast is mine!]

Hearts ablaze
Banners high
We go marching into battle
Unafraid although the danger just increased

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!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!

We're not safe until he's dead
He'll come stalking us at night
Set to sacrifice our children
To his monstrous appetite
He'll wreak havoc on our village
If we let him wander free

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

Through the mist, through the wood
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!

Light your torch, mount your horse
Screw your courage to the sticking place
We're counting on Gaston to lead the way

Call it war, call it threat
You can bet they all will follow
For in times like this, they'll do just as I say

There's a beast running wild, there's no question
But I fear the wrong monster's released

Sally forth! Tally ho!
Grab your sword! Grab your bow!
Praise the Lord and here we go!

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!

Hearts ablaze, banners high
We go marching into battle
Unafraid although the danger's just increased

Raise the flag, sing the song
Here we come, we're fifty strong
And fifty Frenchmen can't be wrong
Let's kill the Beast!

Kill the Beast!
Kill the Beast!
