Lyrics
Aretha:
Tale as old as time, true as it can be
Barely even friends, then somebody bends
Unexpectedly, oh yeah

Billy: Just a little change
Aretha: Just a little change
Billy:
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared, neither one prepared
Aretha & Billy: Beauty and the Beast

Aretha:
Ever just the same, ever a surprise
Ever as before, ever just as sure as the sun will rise
Ever just the same, yeah, same, ever a surprise, yeah
Ever as before, ever just as sure as the sun will rise, oh, oh, oh

Aretha:
Tale as old as time, tune as old as song
Aretha & Billy:
Bittersweet and strange, finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Billy: Certain as the sun
Aretha: Certain as the sun
Billy: Rising in the east
Aretha: Tale as old as time
Aretha & Billy:
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast

Aretha: Tale as old as time
Aretha & Billy:
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the, the beast
Aretha: Oh, oh yeah

Català – La Bella I La Bèstia
Aretha:
Conte tan vell com el temps, tan cert com pot ser
Amb prou feines amics, aleshores algú s’adapta
Inesperadament, oh sí

Billy: Només un petit canvi
Aretha: Només un petit canvi
Billy:
Xic, per dir el mínim
Ambdós una mica espantats, cap dels dos preparat
Aretha & Billy: La Bella i la Bèstia

Aretha:
Sempre el mateix, sempre una sorpresa
Sempre com abans, sempre tan segur com que el sol sortirà
Sempre el mateix, sí, el mateix, sempre una sorpresa, sí
Sempre com abans, sempre tan segur com que el sol sortirà, oh, oh, oh

Aretha:
Conte tan vell com el temps, melodia tan antiga com la cançó
Aretha & Billy:
Agredolç i estrany, descobrint que pots canviar
Aprenent que estaves equivocada

Billy: Cert com el sol
Aretha: Cert com el sol
Billy: Apareixent per l’est
Aretha: Conte tan vell com el temps
Aretha & Billy:
Cançó tan vella com la rima
La Bella i la Bèstia

Aretha: Conte tan vell com el temps
Aretha & Billy:
Cançó tan vella com la rima
La Bella i la, la Bèstia
Aretha: Oh, oh sí
