A Guy Like You is a song feature in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (film).
Hunchback-disneyscreencaps com-6717
This song is sung by Laverne (the late Mary Wickes), Hugo (Jason Alexander) & Victor (Charles Kimbrough). The song means that the Gargoyles assume that Esmeralda is in love with Quasimodo, the same way that he loves her. Placing a comedic song after a dark, intense scene such as "Hell Fire" is a common technique allowing the audience to release tension in an appropriate time, thus allowing the climax to be appropriately dramatic. 


Hugo : Paris the city of lovers is glowing this evening
Hugo : True that's because It's on fire, but still there's l'amour
Hugo : Somewhere out there in the night, her heart is also a light
Hugo : And I know a guy she might be burning for
Hugo : A guy like you, she's never known kid
Hugo : A guy like you, a girl never meets ev'ry day
Hugo : You got a look that's all your own kid, could there be two?
Laverne and Victor : Like you
All : no way
Hugo: Those other guys she could dangle, all look the same from ev'ry boring point of view.
Hugo : Your a surprise from ev'ry angle mon dieu above, she gotta love a guy like you
Victor : A guy like you gets extra credit, because it's true, you got a certain something more
Hugo : Your aces kid
Laverne : You see that face you don't forget it
Laverne and Victor : Want something new?
Hugo : That's you
All three : For sure
Laverne : We all have gaped at some Adonis
Victor : But then we crave a meal more nourishing to chew
Hugo : And since your shape like a croissant is
All Three : No question of she's gotta love a guy like you

Laverne and Victor : A guy like you
Hugo : With all you bring her
Victor and Laverne : I tell you Quasi

Victor and Laverne : There never was another Quasi. Could you tell Quasi? It's all you Quasi.
Laverne and Victor : Another was he
Laverne and Victor: From king to serf to the bourgeoisie
Hugo : It's why she fell
Hugo : For you know who
Laverne and Victor : They're all the second stringer
