This Friendly World Song Lyrics

R.E.M., Andy, Tony
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
This Friendly World [ANDY:] Hi, Michael.

[MICHAEL:] Hi, Andy. Thanks for joining us. Do you
wanna ... you wanna sing a song together?

[ANDY:] Sure! Is it a sweet song?

[MICHAEL:] Yeah, it's real sweet.

[ANDY:] O.K.!

[They laugh.]

In this friendly, friendly world
With each day so full of joy
Why should any heart be lonely?

[ANDY:] My turn!
In this friendly, friendly world
With each night so full of dreams
Why should any heart be afraid?

The world is ...

... such a wonderful place
To wander through
When you've got someone you love

To wander along with you

[ANDY:] O.K., now take every second word! With ...
[MICHAEL:] ... the ...
[ANDY:] ... sky ...
[MICHAEL:] ... so ...
[ANDY:] ... full ...
[MICHAEL:] ... of ...
[ANDY:] ... stars

[MICHAEL:] And ...
[ANDY:] ... the ...
[MICHAEL:] ... river ...
[ANDY:] ... so ...
[MICHAEL:] ... full ...
[ANDY:] ... of ...
[MICHAEL:] ... song, Every ...

[ANDY:] ... heart ...
[MICHAEL:] ... should ...
[ANDY:] ... be ...
[MICHAEL:] ... so ...
[ANDY:] ... thankful
It's a friendly world! Don't you think so, Michael?


[TONY:] Oh yeah?! What's so friendly about it?!!
This is Tony Clifton, and, and I demand a part in
this song! I'm just as big a part of the movie as
these guys are! And, and I will not sit back while
some sought-after Colonel Kurtz wanna-be, uh, uh
has his day in the sun! I think he's enough
boring! I think, um, uh-uh, Michael here should, uh
sit this one out! At least the next verse, or so!

[ANDY:] Is that O.K., Michael?


[ANDY:] I don't think you have a choice.

[MICHAEL: (laughs)] O.K.

The world is such a wonderful place
Ha! to wander a-through!
Ah, when you've got someone you luh-huuuv
Ah, to wander along, ah, with yooo-hoooooo!
O.K., you go...

[MICHAEL:] With the sky so full of stars
[ANDY:] And the river so full of song
[MICHAEL:] Welcome back, Andy. Every heart should be ...
[MICHAEL & ANDY:] ... so thankful

[ANDY:] Thankful for this friendly, friendly world
Thank you, Michael!

[MICHAEL:] Thanks, Andy!

[ANDY:] Thank you all for this friendly, friendly world!

[TONY:] Thanks for nothing! K, where's the girls?
They in a chopper? The guy's got a chopper, right?
