"No Matter What" is a song sung by Belle and Maurice in the Beauty and the Beast Broadway musical. The line about Belle's mother implies that she may have been a minor member of the French Nobility.  


Belle:Papa, do you think I'm...odd?

Maurice:My daughter odd? Where did you get an idea like that?

Belle:I don't know. It's just that, well, people talk.

Maurice:They talk about me, too.

Maurice:No, we're not odd, its true

No fam'ly ever saner

Except one uncle who...well, maybe let that pass

In all you say or do

You couldn't make it plainer

You are your mother's daughter; therefore you are class

Belle:So I should just accept I'm simply not like them

Maurice:They are the common herd

And you should take my word

You are unique: creme de la creme

No matter what you do

I'm on your side

And if my point of view

Is somewhat misty-eyed

There's nothing clearer in my life

Than what I wish and feel for you

And that's a lot...

No matter what

Belle:No matter what they say

You make me proud

I love the funny way

You stand out from the crowd

Maurice:It's my intention my invention

Shows the world out there one day

Just what we've got...

Belle:No matter what

Maurice:Now some may say all fathers just exaggerate

Belle:That ev'ry daughter's great?

Maurice:You are!

Belle:And ev'ry daughter tends to say her father's tops

Maurice:She pulls out all the stops

To praise him

Belle:And quite rightly!

Maurice:No matter what the pain

We've come this far

I pray that you remain

Exactly as you are

This really is a case of father knowing best

Belle:And daughter too!

Maurice:You're never strange

Belle:Don't ever change

Both:You're all I've got

No matter what.
