“You're very clever to have found our hideaway.
Unfortunately, you won't live to tell the tale.” –Clopin

Disney’s usual fun and too wholesome animation veers away a bit with their version of Victor Hugo’s classic The Hunback Of Notre Dame. Considered a very serious story with adult themes, Disney still gambles with it and actually paid off. There’s the expected appearances of talking animated objects. In this case, three talking gargoyles. The Divine Miss M sung with soul one of the songs in the film, God Help The Outcast.

sung by: Bette Midler

I don't know if you can hear me, or if you're even there

I don't know if you will listen to a humble prayer
They tell me I am just an outcast, I shouldn't speak to you
Still I see your face, and wonder, were you once an outcast too?

God help the outcasts, hungry from birth
Show them the mercy they don't find on Earth
The lost and forgotten, they look to you still
God help the outcasts, or nobody will

I ask for nothing, I can get by
But I know so many less lucky than I
God help the outcasts, the poor and downtrod
I thought we all were the children of God

I don't know if there's a reason
Why some are blessed, some not
Why the few you seem to favort
Hey fear us, flee us, try not to see us

God help the outcasts, the tattered, the torn
Seeking an answer to why they were born
Winds of misfortune have blown them about
You made the outcasts, don't cast them out

The poor and unlucky, the weak and the odd
I thought we all were the children of God
