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), and 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

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
