"You've Got a Friend in Me" is a song written and first recorded by Randy Newman. Originally written as the theme song for the 1995 Disney/Pixar animated film Toy Story, it has since become the theme song for its sequels, Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010), making it the franchise's main theme. The song was nominated for both the 1996 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the 1995 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song but lost both to another Disney song, "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas.

Like many other Disney theme songs, "You've Got a Friend in Me" has been covered numerous times. Cover versions featured in the three Toy Story films include a duet with Randy Newman and Lyle Lovett in Toy Story, a version by Robert Goulet and an instrumental by Tom Scott in Toy Story 2, an Italian language version by Riccardo Cocciante, and a Spanish language version by the Gipsy Kings in Toy Story 3.

As the name of the song implies, the song sings about how one can always rely on someone through even the roughest of time, thus, finding a friend in that someone. It initially seems to be about Andy being that friend to Woody, but as the film progresses, it becomes clear that Buzz is that friend.

Lyrics Edit

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

When the road looks rough ahead

And you're miles and miles

From your nice warm bed

You just remember what your old pal said

Boy, you've got a friend in me

Yeah, you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me

If you've got troubles, I've got 'em too

There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you

We stick together and can see it through

Cause you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me


Some other folks might be

A little bit smarter than I am

Bigger and stronger too, maybe

But none of them will ever love you

The way I do, it's me and you, boy.


And as the years go by

Our friendship will never die

You're gonna see it's our destiny

You've got a friend in me (x3)
