Lyrics

Never talk to strangers,
That's very good advice.
'Cause you just can't tell
If they're good or bad,
Even though they may seem nice.
Even though they may seem nice.
Don't get in their car (no, no!)
Don't take anything from them. (no, no!)
Just turn around (Yeah!)
And walk away (Yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend! (Oh yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend!
Never talk to strangers
That's very good advice.
Cause you just can't tell
If they're good or bad,
Even though they may seem nice.
Even though they may seem nice.
Don't get in their car (no, no!)
Don't take anything from them. (no, no!)
Just turn around (Yeah!)
And walk away (Yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend! (Oh yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend!
Don't get in their car (no, no!)
Don't take anything from them. (no, no!)
Just turn around (Yeah!)
And walk away (Yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend! (Oh yeah!)
Go back and tell a grownup friend!
Go back and tell a grownup friend!

Trivia

  • There has been some controversy that Barney once said "A stranger is a friend you haven't met" in Playing It Safe (a rumor started on the alt.barney.dinosaur.die.die newsgroup), but he says the opposite in both the episode and this song.
