"Everyone's Your Friend" lyrics Include:

  Everyone's Your Friend 
You see someone at school, they have a different hair do 
You're with your friends, they do whatever you do
 Try being nice, they're probably really cool 
Don't be the bully, the bully at your school
 Cause everyone's your friend, Everyone's your friend 
Be nice to everyone, you gotta understand 
That there's a golden rule, bullying's not cool
 Try treating others like you want to be treated 
I wanna go to space, climb the highest mountain
 so many dreams over flowin like a fountain
 But when you say mean things, you really get me down 
You take my dreams, and you pull them to the ground 
Everyone's your friend, Everyone's your friend 
Be nice to everyone, you gotta understand
 That when your dreams are high, you shoot into the sky
 Nothing can stop you can you feel your heart beatin'?
 Everyone's your friend, Everyone's your friend
 Be nice to everyone, you gotta understand
 That when your dreams are high, you shoot into the sky
 Nothing can stop you can you feel your heart beatin'?
