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
We'll be sharing wonderful times every day
All together 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
I know I can lean on you, my friends will see me through
We're growing up together never to part
I'm sending you my love, straight from the heart

Say hello to your friends (Baby-Sitters Club!)
