We're Going to Be Fri­ends

'We're Going to Be Fri­ends' is a sin­gle by the Ame­ri­can al­ter­na­ti­ve rock band White Stripes from their album White Blood Cells. It was re­leased in late 2002, and tells the story of mee­ting a new fri­end at the be­gin­ning of a school year.

The video fea­tures Jack White play­ing the gui­tar on a couch and his (ex-)wife Meg slee­ping along­si­de him.

Singer-​songwriter Jack John­son re­cor­ded a cover of the song on his album Sing-​A-Longs and Lulla­bies for the film Cu­rious Ge­or­ge. The song was also pre­sen­ted on the movie Won­der (2017) at the be­gin­ning and was re­pea­ted again in the movie with a cover ver­si­on per­for­med by Ca­ro­li­ne Pen­nell.

Meg & Jack, The White Stripes
Lis­ten to the song on You­Tube and fill in the gaps. It's the Jack John­son ver­si­on of the song!

Fall is here, hear the yell, back to school, ring the bell.

Brand new shoes, wal­king blues, climb the fence, books and pens.

I can tell that we are gonna be fri­ends. Yes, I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

Walk with me Suzy Lee through the park and by the tree.

We can rest upon the ground and look at all the bugs we've found.

Safe­ly walk to school wit­hout a sound. We safe­ly walk to school without a sound.

These are the ly­rics of the 3rd and 4th verse. What's the cor­rect order?
  • 4
    Num­bers, let­ters, learn to spell, nouns and books and show and tell.
  • 6
    The te­acher marks our height again­st the wall. (2x)
  • 5
    Play time we will throw the ball, then back to class through the hall.
  • 2
    There's dirt on our uni­forms from cha­sing all the ants and worms.
  • 3
    We clean up and now it's time to learn. (2x)
  • 1
    Well here we are, no one else, we walk to school all by our­sel­ves.
These are the ly­rics of the Bridge. High­light all the con­junc­tions.
  • And we don't no­ti­ce any time pass 'cause we don't no­ti­ce anything.
  • And we sit side by side in every class, the te­acher thinks that I sound funny.
  • But she likes it when you sing.
Here are the ly­rics of the last verse. What goes together?
  • To­night I'll dream in my bed while silly thoughts
  • And when I wake to­mor­row I'll bet
  • 'Cause I can tell that we are gonna be fri­ends.
  • Yes, I can tell that we are gonna be fri­ends.
  • run through my head of the bugs and al­pha­bet.
  • that you and I will walk together again.
