"Stories" is a song performed by Belle in the 1997 film Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. In this song, with Chip's help, she makes a storybook as a gift for the Beast.


Belle: When I get to know him
We'll find more things to say
One day I will reach him
There has to be a way

Everyone needs someone
He must need someone, too!
When I get to know him better
Here's what I will do

I'll read him stories
From picture books
All filled with wonder
Magic worlds where the impossible

Becomes the everyday
We'll find a mountain-top
And some moon-beams to sit under
I'll lead, because I know the way!

So much to discover
I do it all the time
I could live inside bright pages
Where the words all rhyme

We will slay the dragons
That still follow him around
And he'll smile
Yes, he'll smile
As his dreams leave the ground!

Stories and stories
About mermaids, kings and sunken treasure
Magic worlds where the impossible
Becomes the everyday

I know a tiny place
Just a dot,
Too small to measure
I'll lead him there, I know the way!

Stories about heroes
Who overcame their deepest sorrows
They'll put hope into his heart again
To cherish everyday

He'll find a better world
And the strength to face tomorrow
I'm sure that when he knows the way
He'll want to stay...
