'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.

Walk with me Suzy Lee through the and by the tree.
We can rest upon the ground and at all the bugs we've found.
Safely walk to without a sound. We safely walk to school a sound.
