At the beginning of the segment, Barney says like this:
- Hello again to all my friends.
- I'm glad you came to play.
- Our fun and learning never ends.
- Here's what we did today!
At the end of the segment, Barney usually says something along the lines of "And remember, I love you." He sometimes signs off with a different manner, such as "And you know what? I love you." Barney says his rhyme outside of the school. In Seasons 1-9, Barney Says will start with a clip of a child doing something saying "Hey everybody, it's time for Barney Says." Also in Seasons 1-9 and 12, at the end of each segment, Barney pops out on the bottom left corner of the screen and says, "And remember, I love you."
- In Season 9, the segment was replaced with one with a female announcer talking about how the episode encourages kids to explore their world among other things. In addition, she explains how Barney is "a helping hand for growing children," and later remakes of Season 7, and 8.
- In Seasons 10, 11 and 14 there was a similar segment called "Let's Play with Barney," where Barney gives commentary on some kids having fun.
- In episodes from Season 13, to fit with the travel theme, an almost identical segment featuring Barney's Travel Book is shown with Barney explaining each episode's journey and explaining more about the country's culture.
- In Season 1-3, original composition plays.
- In Season 4-6, the music was changed. Although the costumes for the show changed for seasons 4, 5, and 6, the costume remained the same for the Barney Says segments.
- In Season 7, 8, 9, and 12 the background music for Barney Says is an instrumental version of Being Together.
