Besides the explanations that Karen gave, 伙伴 can also be used to refer to partners.
Such as: 生意伙伴(shēngyì huǒbàn) business partners; 工作伙伴(gōngzuò huǒbàn) work partners.

bad in chinnese can put word 不 before 好, it means 不好= bù hǎo another one is 坏=huài

I think, 不好 or 坏

“好” in this online kids Chinese song means good, but can anyone tell me the Chinese word for “bad?”

They are synonyms. But “伙伴” is usually used with kids, for example, “小伙伴 little playmates.”

In this online Chinese song for kids, 朋友 means friend, and I’ve also learned that the phrase “伙伴” also means friend, so what’s the difference between them?
