me too:) my best friend bought it for me for my bday, we still watch/sing/quote it:)
here are the lyrics (memory might be hazy) garfield in lower case US ACRES IN CAPS:)
friends are there-TO HELP YOU GET STARTED TO GIVE YOU A PUSH ON YOUR WAYYY
friends are there - TO TURN YOU AROUND GET YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND FOR A BRAND NEW DAYYY
they'll pick you up when your down, help you swallow your pride with something inside, help you break on through to the other side
friends are someone you can open up to-WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE READY TO FLIP
when you've got the world on your shoulders-FRIENDS ARE THERE TO GIVE YOU A TIP
friends are there when you need them, they're even there when you dont
FOR A WALK IN THE PARK OR A SHOT IN THE DARK-FRIENDS ARE THERE (i dont care) BUT FRIENDS WILL CARE FOR YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-UUUUU-UUUUUU!!
