Friends on the Other Side is a song from "The Princess and the Frog." It is sung by Dr. Facilier promising Naveen all his dreams as well as his butler Lawrence's as he lures Naveen and Lawrence in in his plan, which is to concuct a spell which turns Naveen into a frog.
Facilier: Don't you disrespect me little man! Don't you derogate or deride! You're in my world now Not your world And I got friends on the other side!
Friends on the Other Side: He's got friends on the other side...
Facilier: That's an echo, gentlemen. Just a little something we have here in Louisiana, A little parlor trick. Don't worry...
Sit down at my table Put your minds at ease If you relax it will enable me to do anything I please I can read your future I can change it 'round some, too I'll look deep into your heart and soul (you do have a soul, don't you, Lawrence?) Make your wildest dreams come true!
I got voodoo I got hoodoo I got things I ain't even tried! And I got friends on the other side.
Friends on the Other Side: He's got friends on the other side!
Facilier: The cards, the cards, the cards will tell The past, the present, and the future as well! The cards, the cards, just take three Take a little trip into your future with me!
Now you, young man, are from across the sea You come from two long lines of royalty (I'm a royal myself on my mother's side) Your lifestyle's high But your funds are low You need to marry a lil' honey whose daddy got dough!
Mom and dad cut you off, huh playboy? Now y'all gotta get hitched, but hitchin' ties you down. You just wanna be free. Hop from place to place.
But freedom... takes green! It's the green, it's the green, it's the green you need And when I looked into your future It's the green that I see!
On you little man, I don't want to waste much time You been pushed around all your life You been pushed around by your mother and your sister and your brother. And if you was married... You'd be pushed around by your wife But in your future, the you I see Is exactly the man you always wanted to be!
Shake my hand. Come on boys. Won't you shake the poor sinner's hand?
Yes... Are you ready?
Friends on the Other Side: Are you ready?
Facilier: Are you ready? Transformation central!
Friends on the Other Side: Transformation central!
Facilier: Reformation central!
Friends on the Other Side: Reformation central!
Facilier: Transmogrification central! Can you feel it? You're changin' You're changin' You're changin', all right! I hope you're satisfied But if you ain't Don't blame me!! You can blame my friends on the other side!
Friends on the Other Side: You got what you wanted! But you lost what you had!

- It has a mix of jazz since Facilier danced like Cab Calloway but then he danced like Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.
