"My Funny Friend and Me" is the theme song from The Emperor's New Groove. It is sung in Kuzco's point of view over the credits by Sting from the Police who wrote the music and lyrics (with David Hartley taking part in the former). It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, but it lost to "Things Have Changed" from Wonder Boys.

Sting also sang an Italian-language version of the song.


In the quiet time of evening
When the stars assume their patterns
And the day has made his journey
And we wondered just what happened
To the life we knew before the world changed
When not a thing I held was true
But you were kind to me and you reminded me
That the world is not my playground
There are other things that matter
And when a simple needs protecting
My illusions all would shatter
But you stayed in my corner
The only world I know was upside down
And now the world and me
I know you carry me

You see the patterns in the big sky
Those constellations look like you and I
Just like the patterns in the big sky
We could be lost we could refuse to try
But we made it through in the dark night
Would those lucky guys turn out to be?
But that unusual blend of my funny friend and me

I'm not as clever as I thought I was
I'm not the boy I used to be because
You showed me somethin' different
You showed me somethin' pure
I always seemed so certain but I was really never sure
But you stayed and you called my name
When others would have walked out on a lousy game
And you could've made it through
But your funny friend and me

You see the patterns in the big sky, yeah, yeah, yeah
Those constellations look like you and I
That tiny planet in a bigger guy
I don't know whether I should laugh or cry

Just like the patterns in the big sky, we'll be together
We'll be together 'till the end this time, don't know, you don't know
Don't know the answer or the reason why, we'll stick together
We'll stick together 'till the day we die

If I had to do this all a second time
I won't complain or make a fuss
Who'd the angels send?
But that unlikely blend
Are those two funny friends
That's us
