Song lyrics


We're your friends
We're your friends
We're your friends to the bitter end
(The bitter end)

When you're alone
(When you're alone)
Who comes around
(Who comes around)
To pluck you up
(To pluck you up)
When you are down
(When you are down)
And when you're outside, looking in
Who's there to open the door?
That's what friends are for!

Who's always eager to extend
A friendly claw?
That's what friends are for!

And when you're lost in dire need
Who's at your side at lightning speed?
We're friends with every creature
Comin' down the pike
In fact, we've never met an animal
We didn't like, didn't like

So you can see
We're friends in need
And friends in need
Are friends indeed
We'll keep you safe
In the jungle for evermore
That's what friends are for!

Snapshot pictures

We're your friends to the bitter end
We're your friends to the bitter end
  When you're alone
When you're alone
Who's at your side at lightning speed
Who's at your side at lightning speed
  That's what friends are for
That's what friends are for
The song is included in The Jungle Book Movie Songs
