"I Love You" is a Barney song, which is sung at the end of almost every Barney episode or video. The song is a symbol of how Barney loves people deeply and how his friends are like family to him. It made its grand debut in the Barney & the Backyard Gang video, "The Backyard Show". It uses the same tune as "This Old Man". The song's lyrics were penned by Lee Bernstein, and were first published in a book called Piggyback Songs: New Songs Sung to the Tune of Childhood Favorites by Warren Publishing House in 1983, five years before the first Barney video was made. A lawsuit over the song was filed by the publishers in 1993.

Lyrics

I love you, you love me.
We're as happy as can be.
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you,
Won't you say you love me too?

I love you, you love me.
We're a happy family.
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you,
Won't you say you love me too?

I love you, you love me.
We're a happy family.
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you,
Won't you say you love me too?

I love you, you love me,
We're best friends,
Like friends should be
With a great big hug,
And a kiss from me to you,
Won't you say you love me too?

The Music of the Night

I have brought you To the scene of sweet music's throne To this kingdom where all must pay homage to music Music...

You have come here For one purpose and one alone Since the moment I first heard you sing I have needed you with me to serve me, to sing For my music My music...

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation Darkness stirs and wakes imagination Silently the senses abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender Turn your face away from the garish light of day Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light And listen to the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before Let your soul take you where you long to be Only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in To the power of the music that I write The power of the music of the night

Trivia

  • The only four Barney videos/shows where "I Love You" wasn't sung in "Rock with Barney" (though it was an underscore for when Barney came to life, then at the end), "Imagination Island", "Barney Live! In New York City" (both due to a lawsuit over the song at the time), and "Best Fairy Tales" (for unknown reasons). The album Barney's Favorites Vol. 2 didn't have the song either, due to the lawsuit.
  • Though "I Love You" is usually sung at the end of most Barney media, it was sung near the beginning of most Backyard Gang videos (with the exception of "Barney Goes to School" and "Barney in Concert").
  • Though there have been many different arrangements and some custom variants for the song, the lyrics have been the same since 1992.
  • An extended version of "I Love You", sung by Sheena Easton, Take 6, and the First AME Choir of Los Angeles (among others), was included on the Barney's Great Adventure soundtrack (but not in the actual movie itself).
