"Who Needs You?" is the villain song from The Land Before Time IV: Journey through the Mists. It focuses greatly on the unfriendly relationship between the two characters Ichy and Dil, and how their intensive dislike of each other leads them to believe that they are capable of surviving on their own, though, in reality, they must rely on one another to stay alive.

Lyrics

Ichy

I need you like a hole in the head

Dil

And I need you like a bug in the bed

Ichy

Ya constantly bite the claw that feeds you

Dil and Ichy together

Who needs you? Not me

Dil

I need you like a pain in the gut

Ichy

Oh, yeah? And I need you like a kick in the butt

You truly disgrace the race that breeds you

Dil and Ichy together

Who needs you? Not me

Dil

Who needs you?

You creepy, crawly creature

You're ugly as sin

just a scraggly bag of skin

Ichy

And who needs you?

Your tail's your finest feature

you're thick-skinned

and a bore, draggin'

your belly 'round the floor

Dil

Oh, I need you like a rock on my toes

Ichy

And I need you like a sock on my nose

I'm shocked and appalled

by your behavior

Dil

Don't try bein' nice

cause that won't save ya

Dil and Ichy together

I'm better off without you I can see

so who needs you? Not me

Ichy

I need you

like a cold in July

Dil

And I need you

like a punch in the eye

Ichy

Of all the dumb beasts

Not one precedes you

Dil and Ichy together

Who needs you? Not me

Dil

I need you

like I need a disease

Ichy

Oh-ho, and I need you

like the sun needs to freeze

For quickness of mind

a rock outspeeds you

Dil and Ichy together

Who needs you

not me

Dil

Who needs you?

You cross-eyed crazy critter

you twitter and squawk

and you're knock-kneed

when you walk

Ichy

And who needs you?

ya flat-foot, four-foot quitter

You're bitter and

you're mad, 'cause you're

as ugly as your dad

Dil

Oh, I need you

like I need some more teeth

Ichy

I lift a rock

and find you underneath

I'm deeply upset by your demeanor

Dil

I know that I'm mean

my dark demeanor

Dil and Ichy together

No more unlikely pair

could ever be

Ichy

the word is incompatibility

Dil

Not only that,

we don't get on, you see

Dil and Ichy together

So who needs you,

except the race that breeds you?

Who needs you?

Dil

Not me

Ichy

Not me

Dil

Not me

Ichy

Not me

Dil and Ichy together

Not me

Trivia

  • This song has been noted for containing several anachronisms. The duet frequently mentions or refers to modern inventions, such as beds, the month of July (Which would not be known of at the time, since the lunar calendar is a modern invention), the Sun being called its normal name, rather than "The Bright Circle," and being one of the first mentions of the concept of race, rather than simply herds (aside from, perhaps, Ozzy and Strut referring to themselves as Struthiomimus in their own villain-song, "Eggs", from The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure).
