"A Friend Like You" is an original Barney song that first appeared in "Welcome, Cousin Riff". 

Lyrics

I'm so happy you're the one
That's here today having fun.
Wherever we go, whatever we do,
It's better with a friend like you.
Everything's better with a friend.
Everything's better with a friend like you.
Playing, pretending, whatever we do.
It's better with a friend like you.
Everything's better with a friend.
Everything's better with a friend like you.
Playing, pretending, whatever we do.
It's better with a friend like you.
Playing, pretending, whatever we do.
It's better with a friend like you.

Trivia

  • The song is sung at the end of the first half of every episode in Seasons 10 and 11, except in "Gift of the Dinos", where it is replaced with "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".
