I Love You, You Love Me (from the "Barney" TV show)

Lyrics by Lee Bernstein (BMI)

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?

For parents
Hugs from you are good for your child’s health. Not just because they feel good to you and your child, but this close physical contact releases a beneficial hormone in our bodies called oxytocin. Learn more about this NIH supported research into the science behind physical contact and about other research that you can use in your role as a parent.
For kids
Hug and kiss your family, but take care, too! Make sure your hands are clean when you touch other people. You don’t want their germs, and they don’t want yours. Play some "scrubbing" games and learn about the right way to wash your hands.
