"You've Got a Friend in Me" is the Academy Award Nominated song heard in the Toy Story films. It is written and performed by Randy Newman.

Toy Story

It is first heard as a solo in the opening credits of the first film as Andy takes Woody downstairs. It is sung as a duo with Lyle Lovett in the end credits, and this version is used in Disney's Sing Along Songs: Topsy Turvy. The solo and the duet version are listed as Tracks 1 and 16, respectively on the Toy Story Soundtrack.

Toy Story 2

In the second film, a scene from Woody's Roundup features a Woody doll on the show singing this song on a guitar, and then a kid on the set hugs him. It is also sung by Wheezy (Robert Goulet) at the end of the film, and this version can be heard in its entirety during the end credits and listed as Track 3 on the Toy Story 2 Soundtrack. The soundtrack also features an instrumental version of the song, performed by Tom Scott, listed as Track 20. Riders in the Sky has also performed a cover of this song on the album Woody's Roundup: A Rootin' Tootin' Collection of Woody's Favorite Songs, listed as Track 5, as well as their instrumental version, listed as Track 10 on the album.

Toy Story 3

In the third film, almost the whole original version of the song is heard during the scene of Ms. Davis' old recordings of Andy playing with his toys. It is also a coincidence that the song stops right at the verse: "And as the years go by, our friendship will never die", and goes right to the scene with the toys in the toy box planning their mission to get Andy to play with them. Due to Buzz briefly being reset to Spanish mode in the film, it has a Spanish version of the song, "Hay Un Amigo En Mi", performed by the Gipsy Kings, listed as Track 2 on the Toy Story 3 Soundtrack. During the end credits of the film, Buzz and Jessie perform a paso doble to the song.

Other Media

  • The original version song was also featured in Toy Story 3: The Video Game, when the player is on the game board or inside Al's Toy Barn.
  • The song was nominated for the 1995 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the 1996 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song -- although it lost to another Disney song, "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas, which was released on the same year as Toy Story.
  • Like the other songs featured in Toy Story, Pixar only wanted songs in the background to describe the scene and emotions of the characters.
  • The music of the original version is heard in the Toy Story 3 teaser trailer.

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you're miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
You just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you've got a friend in me
Yeah, you've got a friend in me

You've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me
If you've got troubles, I've got 'em too
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you
We stick together and can see it through
Cause you've got a friend in me
You've got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too, maybe
But none of them will ever love you
The way I do, it's me and you, boy.

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You're gonna see it's our destiny
You've got a friend in me (x3)

Spanish version (performed by the Gipsy Kings)

Toy Story 3: "Hay Un Amigo En Mi"
IxbranAdded by Ixbran

Hay un amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mí
Cuando salgas a volar
Hay un amigo en mí
Sí, un amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mí

Hay un amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mí
Cuando salgas a volar
Hay un amigo en mí
Sí, un amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mí

Hay muchos que pueden ser
Un poco más listos
Mas nunca habrá quien pueda ser
Un amigo fiel
Y tú lo sabes

Los años pasarán
Lo nuestro no morirá
Lo vas a ver
Mejor tener
Un buen amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mí
Un buen amigo en mí
Hay un amigo en mi
