Final Version
Extended version by Rebecca Sugar

"We Are The Crystal Gems" is a song first sung by Steven in the "Pilot" and is the opening theme song of the show. He describes it as the song that he will sing every time they go on adventures.


We are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!

Extended versions

A fuller version of the song was heard in the episode named, "Pilot." It adds the following before the lyrics reproduced above:

If you're evil and you're on the rise
You can count on the four of us taking you down
Cause we're good and evil never beats us
We'll win the fight and then go out for pizzas

At the "Gallery Nucleus Steven Universe/Adventure Time" art show in August 2014, Rebecca Sugar sang an even more extended version of the song.

If you could only know
What we really are
We were amazed to find
Beauty and your worth
We will protect your kind
We will protect your Earth
We will protect your Earth
We are the Crystal Gems
We'll always save the day
And if you think we can't
We'll always find a way
That's why the people on this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!

  • Steven sings this song in the "Pilot" for when they go on adventures; this song later became the theme song of the show.
  • This is the first song that was ever sung in the series.
  • This song was made into the theme song of the show.
  • At the start of the intro version of the song, the Crystal Gems' gems glow.
  • In the main series, the song was sung by all of the Crystal Gems, while only Steven sang the song in the Pilot.
  • In the last version, sung by Rebecca Sugar in the "Gallery Nucleus Steven Universe/Adventure Time," she replaced a lot of lines with "Lala-la"s. These lines may be spoilers for the series, so the entirety of the song is still unknown.
  • The melody of this song has been sampled in a handful of other tracks, such as Steven's Shield and Fight, Flight, or Love.
