Make new friends
But keep the old
One is silver
And the other gold.

New made friends
Like new made wine
Age will mellow
And refine.

This is the longer version if you want a longer song

Make new friends,
But keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.

A circle is round,
It has no end.
That's how long,
I will be your friend.

A fire burns bright,
It warms the heart.
We've been friends,
from the very start.

You have one hand,
I have the other.
Put them together,
We have each other.

Silver is precious,
Gold is too.
I am precious,
And so are you.

You help me,
And I'll help you
And together
We will see it through.

The sky is blue
The Earth is green
I can help
To keep it clean

Across the land
Across the sea
Friends forever
We will always be.
