"Ma Belle Evangeline" (lit. My Beautiful Evangeline) is a romance song featured in Disney's film, The Princess and the Frog. It is sung by Ray (Jim Cummings), and it is also the love song for characters Tiana and Prince Naveen.

Summary[]

Throughout the song, Tiana and Naveen become closer to one another by dancing together and almost share a romantic kiss. It is also shown when the firefly, Ray reveals his love interest, and the Evening Star doesn't go by that name anymore, but by Evangeline for the rest of the film, for his sake.

Lyrics[]

Ray: Look how she lights up the sky
Ma Belle Evangeline
Louis: That ain't no fire...
Ray: So far above me
Yet I
Know her heart belongs to only me

Je t'adore
Naveen: I adore you.
Ray: Je t'aime
Naveen: I love you. I am just translating.
Ray: Evangeline

You're my queen of the night,
So still, so bright.
That someone as beautiful as she
Could love someone like me
Tiana: Oh no. I don't dance.

Ray: Love always finds a way is true
Tiana: I've never danced.
Ray: And I love you, Evangeline
Naveen: If I can mince, you can dance.
Ray: Ooh, yeah
(Trumpet Solo)

Ray: Ooh...
Love is beautiful
Love is wonderful
Love is everything..do you agree?
Mais oui

Look how she lights up the sky
I love you, Evangeline
