Barney & Friends

Barney is a dinosaur
From our imagination,
And when he's tall,
he's what we call
A dinosaur sensation.
Barney's friends are big and small;
They come from lots of places.
After school they meet to play
And sing with happy faces
Barney shows us lots of things
Like how to play pretend,
ABC's, and 123's,
And how to be a friend.
Barney comes to play with us
Whenever we may need him.
Barney can be your friend too,
If you just make-believe him!

Barney & Friends RemixEdit

Barney is a dinosaur
From our imagination
And when he's tall,
He's what we call
a dinosaur sensation
Barney and friends are here for you
To sing and dance and play games too
Barney comes to play with us
Whenever we may need him
Barney can be your friend too
If you just make-believe him!

Barney and the Backyard GangEdit

Barney is a dinosaur
from our imagination
And when he's tall,
he's what we call
a dinosaur sensation
Barney lives with Michael and
With Amy, then you'll soon see
Little Tina tags along
With her big sister Luci
Jason/Derek is in Barney's club
And Adam/Jeffrey has a ticket
But Mom/Dad has never seen him,
'cause she doesn't know our secret
Barney comes to play with us
Whenever we may need him
Barney can be your friend too
If you just make-believe him!

Note: The Backyard Gang version of the song goes much slower than the (current) TV version and the lyrics look a little bit different but the song is alike. Also the remix version goes a little faster and is a hip hop version.
