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.

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.
