"Amigo" is a Sesame Street song about friendship and multiculturalism that first aired in 1984.
When a new kid moves to Betty Lou's neighborhood, she wants to get to know him, but he doesn't speak any English, so she asks her bilingual friend Carlos to teach her some words in Spanish. Carlos then teaches her "hola" (hello), "buenos dias" (good morning), "buenas tardes" (good afternoon), and most importantly, "amigo" (friend).
The song is performed in a Season 42 episode by the entire cast.
