'Beauty and the Beast' Lyrics: Words to the original Celine Dion score

Anticipation is high for Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast movie after the release of the full-length trailer on Monday. The promo gave a sneak peek at all of the beloved characters from the original 1991 animated film, but left out the classic songs.

A release date for the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack has yet to be announced. However, Stitch Kingdom reported in June 2015 that Alan Menken, the composer from the original film, was working on three new songs for the movie. Menken reportedly told a crowd at the Lincoln Center's "Artist to Artist" series that the live-action flick would include favorite songs from the 1991 movie, but not original songs from the Broadway play. He also revealed the titles of two of the new songs — "Forever More" and "Days in the Sun."

While we wait for the movie to hit theaters on March 17, 2017, relive the magic of Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson's "Beauty and the Beast" with the lyrics and audio from the original film:

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
And ever just as sure as the sun will rise

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
Bitter sweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
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
