Lyrics

Mrs. Potts:

Tale as old as time True as it can be  Barely even friends Then somebody bends  Unexpectedly

Just a little change Small to say the least Both a little scared  Neither one prepared Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same Ever a surprise Ever as before Ever just as sure As the sun will rise

Tale as old as time Tune as old as song Bittersweet and strange Finding you can change Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun Rising in the east Tale as old as time Song as old as rhyme Beauty and the Beast

Tale as old as time Song as old as rhyme Beauty and the Beast

The reprise of the song used in the finale begins from the fifth verse.

The reprise used in the 2017 remake contains an additional verse, sung between verses four and five, with new lyrics:

Winter turns to spring Famine turns to feast Nature points the way Nothing left to say Beauty and the Beast

These additional lyrics were written by Ashman for the original 1991 film but removed from the final version. They were added back for the 2017 film as a nod to Ashman.[1]
