Human Again is a song featured in the 2002 Special Edition of the 1991 film Beauty and the Beast.



Cogsworth: Right then! You all know why we're here. We have exactly 12 hours, 36 minutes, and 15 seconds to create the most magical, spontaneous, romantic atmosphere known to man or beast. (Chuckles weakly) "Or beast.." Right. Need I remind you that if the last petal falls from this rose, the spell will never be broken! Very well. You all know your assignments. Half of you to the West Wing, half of you to the East Wing, the rest of you, come with me.

Lumiere: Hoho, lighten up Cogsworth and let nature take its course.

Mrs. Potts: It's obvious there's a spark between them.

Cogsworth: Yes yes yes... But there's no harm in fanning the flames. You know, a little. Besides, they must fall in love tonight if we ever expect to be human again.

Lumiere: Aaah...human again...

Mrs. Potts: Human again...

Lumiere: Yes, think what that means...


Lumiere: I'll be cooking again, be good-looking again,

With a mademoiselle on each arm

When I'm human again, only human again

Poised and polish and gleaming with charm

I'll be courting again, chic and sporting again

Mrs. Potts: Which should cause several husbands alarm

Lumiere: (Ha, ha!) I'll hop down off this shelf, and tout de suite be myself,

Lumiere, Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth: I can't wait to be human again

Essentials: When we're human again, only human again

When we're knickknacks and whatnots no more

When we're human again, good and human again

Wardrobe: O, cherie, won't it all be top drawer?

I'll wear lipstick and rouge

And I won't be so huge

Why, I'll easily fit through that door

I'll exude savoir faire

I'll wear gowns, I'll have hair

It's my prayer to be human again

Mrs. Potts & Cogsworth: When we're human again, only human again

When the world once more starts making sense

Cogsworth: I'll unwind, for a change

Lumiere: (Really? That'd be strange)

Cogsworth: Can I help it if I'm t-t-tense?

In a shack by the sea, I'll sit back, sipping tea

Let my early retirement commence

Far from fools made of wax, I'll get down to brass tacks and real-A-A-A-x!

Chorus: When I'm human again!

So sweep the dust from the floor

Let's let some light in the room

I can feel, I can tell someone might break the spell any day now

Shine up the brass on the door

Alert the dust pail and broom

If it all goes as planned our time may be at hand any day now

Fifi and the maids: Open the shutters and let in some air

Mrs. Potts: Put these here and put those over there

Chorus: Sweep up the years, the sadness and tears and throw them away

We'll be human again, only human again

When the girl finally sets us all free

Cheeks a-blooming again, we're assuming again

We'll resume our long-lost joie de vivre

We'll be playing again, holidaying again

And we're praying it's ASAP

Little push, little shove

They could both fall in love

And we'll finally be human again...


[Transition to the library]

Belle: "...For there never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo."

Beast: Could you read it again?

Belle: Well, here. Why don't you read it to me?

Beast: Uhhh...Alright.

Hmm...I-I can't.

Belle: You mean you never learned?

Beast: I learned, a little. It's just been so long.

Belle: Well here, I'll help you. Let's start...here.

Beast: Here, twoe...?

Belle: Two.

Beast: Two, I knew that. Two households, both alike in dignity...


Chorus: We'll be dancing again, we'll be twirling again

We'll whirling around with such ease

When we're human again, only human again

We'll go waltzing those old one-two-threes

We'll be floating again, we'll be gliding again

Stepping, striding, as fine as you please

Like a real human does, I'll be all that I was

On that glorious morn, when we're finally re-born

And we're all of us human again!
