Lyrics[]

You can always count on me
And I can count on you
Good times, bad times, in between
My friends will see me through, yeah!

We'll be sharing wonderful times every day
All together, we're singing our song
Growing in every way!

Say hello to your friends (Baby-Sitters Club!)
Say hello to the people who care
Nothing's better than friends (Baby-Sitters Club!)
'Cause you know that your friends are always there.

If I'm feeling down and out,
If I'm feeling blue (If I'm feeling blue)
I know I can lean on you
My friends will see me through, yeah!
