  • Notes

    • The theme song is called: "I'll Be There For You" and is performed by The Rembrandts.

      The Rembrandts didn't think the theme song represented where their music was going, but their record label refused to release their new CD without a full length version of the Friends theme. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart for eight weeks.

      Lyrics:
      So no one told you life was gonna be this way
      Your jobs a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
      It's like you're always stuck in second gear
      And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but

      I'll be there for you
      When the rain starts to pour
      I'll be there for you
      Like I've been there before
      I'll be there for you
      'Cause you're there for me too

      You're still in bed at ten
      And work began at eight
      You've burned your breakfast
      So far things are going great

      Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
      Oh but she didn't tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees that

      I'll be there for you
      When the rain starts to pour
      I'll be there for you
      Like I've been there before
      I'll be there for you
      'Cause you're there for me too

      No one could ever know me
      No one could ever see me
      Seems you're the only one who knows
      What it's like to be me
      Someone to face the day with
      Make it through all the rest with
      Someone I'll always laugh with
      Even at my worst I'm best with you, yeah

      It's like you're always stuck in second gear
      And it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

      I'll be there for you
      When the rain starts to pour
      I'll be there for you
      Like I've been there before
      I'll be there for you
      'Cause you're there for me too.

      I'll be there for you
      I'll be there for you
      I'll be there for you
      'Cause you're there for me too.
