The Lyrics

I had sung some of the lines from this song as "be the best, be the best, be the very very best, win the national championship" for years in the context of college football. But it wasn't until now, with the playoff in place and a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie coming out soon, that I decided to expand my parody lines into a full-fledged song. The third CFP title game, a rematch of last year's game between Alabama and Clemson, will be held on the day this parody is scheduled appear on this site, so I submitted this to celebrate.
Listen up fans in the stadium, it is with deepest pride
and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight.
And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a
chair as the CFP proudly presents -
the title game!
Be the best! Be the best!
Be the very, very best
Win the national championship, baby
And you provide the rest
Marching bands
Screaming fans
It's the best sport in the land
Score a touchdown
It's worth six points
Don't believe me? Ask the players
They can sing, they can dance
After all man, take a chance
And a game here is never second best
Go on and kick a field goal
Win the game then they'll
Be the best
Be the best
Be the best!
Running backs
Wide receivers and tight ends
College football has it all
Go on and tell all your friends
This is what
You wanted
A playoff to decide the best
After decades of complaining
Now this is really entertaining
We run plays! I run past
Defenders really really fast
And it is all for the fans
That you can bet
Come on down to the field
You've got the chance today
To be the best
If you're stressed
It's football that we suggest
Be the best! Be the best! Be the best!
Get your worries off your chest
Let us say for the title game
The SEC! The ACC
Here's Clemson! Here's Bama!
For the second year in a row
They will put on quite a show
Don't believe me? Ask Dabo
Hold that tiger! Let's Roll Tide!
What an entertaining ride!
How could anyone be gloomy and depressed?
We'll make you shout "encore!"
And send us out for more
So, be the best!
Be the best!
Be the best!
Life is so unnerving
For a fan who's always yearning
He's not whole without a game that is on
Ah, those good old days before realignment
Suddenly those good old days are gone
Rivalries been disrupted
We need so much more than fun yes
Needing a game to showcase the best in CFB
Most days are just part of the season
Long, boring and dull
The 9th came and oops-a-daisy
You're the best! You're the best!
The others have been put to rest
Now take the field and show your best
The natural grass is very fresh
Everyone will watch on TV
This is the game you gotta see
Number 1 versus Number 2
This game was made just for you
Get the cameras on the spot
It starts at 8:30 on the dot
Yes-sir-ee! We want all the fans impressed
You've done a lot this year
You gave your fans quite a cheer
For you're the best
You're the best!
You're the best!
You're the best!
Be the best! Be the best! Be the best!
Be the best! Be the best!
The title game is now all set
It's been a long ride in 2016
And we're ready
To end the year, on high notes
Yes indeed, this ain't no joke
While the stadium lights' still glowing
You can do it just keep going
Play by play from quarter one
Til one team has the game won
Then we'll sing you a song to celebrate
A championship we can relate
But for now let's kick off
Be the best!
Be the best!
Be the best!
Yes, be the best!
