Barney – Barney Theme Song lyrics

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

    Apparently I sing the barney song in my sleep which is wierd. I havnt watched many of his shows & don't know the words when I'm awake. Now I look up the lyrics at night when mt best friends girlfriend is asleep & sing it so we can have a laugh when she jumps up and shouts "adrian wake up"! If it brings us so much joy. Why does it bother the rest of you? Viva le barney! Oh ya. I'm 26!

    This is the theme song thast plays at the inroduction of barney- the childrens tv programme. The lyrics talk about what barney the dinosaur teaches the children viewing the programme and it also getas the adults interested so that they allow their children to watch it. It also talks about being a friend to everyone and how barney can be a friend. Finally, the song mentions that barney's friends are big and small and come from lots of places encouraging children to make friend with everyone no matter their race, size or religious background and that barney is not only a fictional, inspirational, senatrional charactar but he can teach us a lot.

    Wow. Look at all you little trolls hating on a show meant for little kids and you guys can't just hate, you need to use homophobic racial slurs to get your point across? This world disgusts me, I'm really sad that I have to call myself an American.
    This song/show is about imagination, friendship and family but I'm sure none of you actually had to sit down and watch this show day after day. The purpose of a huge purple dinosaur is so kids, especially young ones, will watch and pay attention vs if it was just a bunch of people doing the same thing. The child I watch refuses to watch the show until Barney is brought to life and she can pull away, not even two yet, the lessons he gives.
    So maybe you should look at it at an educational point of view before you open your trap or maybe not say anything at all if you're just going to look ignorant by using terms like 'fag' over and over and just assuming they're a Jew because guess what -- a real Jew comes on and sees that and gets hurt.
    You all should step back and heck yourselves.

    I think Barney is the most special person in my life, I'm in the moms womb and I can hear my mom watching Barney. Barney touches my soul and I feel like he is with me wherever I go, he just has this way of penetrating me and making me give him whatever he needs. My friends say I'm crazy for loving Barney this much but I don't care because Barney is my only friend.
