"Friends For Dinner" is a song, sung by the kids in the film The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, as Chomper goes off to find food for his friends. Meanwhile, the rest of the kids, minus Littlefoot, still are unsure whether to trust him, since he is a Sharptooth. Even though he obviously meant to say having friends over for dinner.

In the TV episode, "The Brave Longneck Scheme", the song is performed just before they devise their plan to use Chomper (acting the part of a savage sharptooth) to trick Rhett, a young longneck who constantly brags about his adventures in fighting Sharpteeth.

While the lyrics themselves aren't exactly gory or graphic, they certainly draw up some potentially disturbing mental pictures. It is also notable for containing many references to modern foods.

Lyrics

The Mysterious Island

Chomper

Friends for dinner.
I'm gonna have
Friends for dinner.
I'm gonna get
A couple of those,
A couple of these,
Things from the bushes,
And things from the trees,
I think they're yucky,
But I know they'll please
My friends for dinner.


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering plants for his friends.)

Friends for dinner.


Littlefoot

He just wants to have
Friends for dinner.


Cera

He wants to have Threehorn soup.


Petrie

And Littlefoot stew.


Cera

You won't think it's funny,
When he chews on you.


Littlefoot

That's not a very nice thing to do


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering plants for his friends.)

To have friends for dinner!


Littlefoot

He can't eat vegetables,
Only meat.


Cera

He'll munch and he'll crunch
Those little duck feet.


Petrie

If he just eats Spike,
Wouldn't that be enough?


Ducky

He would spit out Cera,
'Cause she's too tough!


Cera

Spoken:Hey!


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering plants for his friends.)

Friends for dinner.
Don't wanna be
Friends for dinner.


Ducky

We'd rather sink in the mud,


Petrie

Fall out of the tree,


Cera

Roll like a rock
Right into the sea.


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering food for his friends.)

One thing we know
We don't wanna be
Is friends for dinner


Cera

He'll gnaw your arm
And he'll nibble your leg


Littlefoot

But we've known Chomper
Since he was an egg


Petrie

He'll bite off your beak


Ducky

That would hurt


Cera

Petrie pot pie


Petrie

And Ducky dessert


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering plants for his friends.)

Friends for dinner
Don't wanna be
Friends for dinner


Cera

Don't wanna be Spike a la mode


Petrie

Or Liver of Duck


Chomper

I wonder if this tastes good


Together(Even Chomper except he's on a different scene from his friends.)

Yuck!


Cera

You know you've run out of luck


Together(Except Chomper who is gathering plant for his friends.)

When you're friends for dinner'


Chomper

Friends for dinner


Littlefoot

Just my friends for dinner.


Together(Except Chomper who is coming back to his friends in the Stinky place.)

Friends for dinner!

The Brave Longneck Scheme

Together

Friends for dinner


Chomper

Pretend to have
friends for dinner


Cera

We'll say he wants
Threehorn Soup


Littlefoot

And Littlefoot Stew


Petrie

It might be funny
when he chew on you


Chomper

That's not a very
nice thing to do


Together

To have friends for dinner


Chomper

Friends for dinner


Together

Don't wanna be
friends for dinner


Ruby

Don't wanna be
Spike a la Mode


Ducky

Or Liver of Duck


Chomper

Ya think Rhett tastes good?


Others

Yuck!


Together

You know you've run out of luck
when you're friends for dinner


Cera

Friends for dinner


Littlefoot

Friends for dinner


Chomper

My friends for dinner
