"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 he will sing every time they go into battle.


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
Your beauty and your worth
We will protect your kind
We will preserve 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 of this world believe in
Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl and Steven!
