Human Again (Song)

Last Updated on: February 20th, 2023

Human Again disney song music“Human Again” is a song from the special edition release of the Disney animated movie “Beauty and the Beast“. The song was originally written for the movie, but it was cut from the final version due to time constraints. It was later included in the special edition release of the movie, along with several other deleted scenes.

In the song, the enchanted objects in the Beast’s castle express their excitement and anticipation at the prospect of becoming human again, as they hope that the spell that turned them into household objects will be broken. The song is a lively and upbeat reflection on the characters’ desire to return to their human form and resume their lives.

The lyrics of “Human Again” are as follows:

“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 polished and gleaming with charm
I’ll be courting again, chic and sporting again
Which should cause several husbands alarm
I’ll hop down off this shelf and to sweethearts be true
As I’m human again, just like you”

The song was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, who worked together on several other Disney animated movies, including “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin”. The song has since become a fan favorite and has been included in several stage adaptations of “Beauty and the Beast”.
