R.E.M., Andy, Tony---This Friendly World

ANDY: Hi, Michael.

MICHAEL: Hi, Andy. Thanks for joining us. Do you
wanna ... you wanna sing a song together?

ANDY: Sure! Is it a sweet song?

MICHAEL: Yeah, it's real sweet.


[They laugh.]

In this friendly, friendly world
With each day so full of joy
Why should any heart be lonely?

ANDY: My turn!
In this friendly, friendly world
With each night so full of dreams
Why should any heart be afraid?

The world is ...

... such a wonderful place
To wander through
When you've got someone you love

To wander along with you

ANDY: O.K., now take every second word! With ...
MICHAEL: ... the ...
ANDY: ... sky ...
MICHAEL: ... so ...
ANDY: ... full ...
MICHAEL: ... of ...
ANDY: ... stars

MICHAEL: And ...

ANDY: ... so ...
MICHAEL: ... full ...
ANDY: ... of ...

ANDY: ... heart ...
MICHAEL: ... should ...
ANDY: ... be ...
MICHAEL: ... so ...
ANDY: ... thankful
It's a friendly world! Don't you think so, Michael?


TONY: Oh yeah?! What's so friendly about it?!!
This is Tony Clifton, and, and I demand a part in
this song! I'm just as big a part of the movie as
these guys are! And, and I will not sit back while
some sought-after Colonel Kurtz wanna-be, uh, uh
has his day in the sun! I think he's enough
boring! I think, um, uh-uh, Michael here should, uh
sit this one out! At least the next verse, or so!

ANDY: Is that O.K., Michael?


ANDY: I don't think you have a choice.

MICHAEL: (laughs) O.K.

The world is such a wonderful place
Ha! to wander a-through!
Ah, when you've got someone you luh-huuuv
Ah, to wander along, ah, with yooo-hoooooo!
O.K., you go...

MICHAEL: With the sky so full of stars
ANDY: And the river so full of song
MICHAEL: Welcome back, Andy. Every heart should be ...
MICHAEL ANDY: ... so thankful

ANDY: Thankful for this friendly, friendly world
Thank you, Michael!

MICHAEL: Thanks, Andy!

ANDY: Thank you all for this friendly, friendly world!

TONY: Thanks for nothing! K, where's the girls?
They in a chopper? The guy's got a chopper, right?
