Disney

It's a tale and song as old as time, and now it's being reimagined by Ariana Grande and John Legend. The singers are recording a duet for Disney's upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast movie.

"Beauty and the Beast," the iconic title track from the 1991 film, sung by Angela Lansbury in the movie and recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson for the film's soundtrack, is getting another rendition thanks to Grande and Legend.

The timeless track won best original song at the 1992 Academy Awards. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman wrote the music and lyrics for the animated classic. Menken scores the live-action version and the pair has written new music for the film

In case you forgot, here are the lyrics for the iconic song, courtesy of AZLyrics.

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
Bittersweet 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
