Rem – This Friendly World lyrics

Are. E. M., Andy, Tony---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...

Michael andy:
... 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?

Michael: Yup!

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?

Michael: O. K.

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?
