Make New Friends

Song Video


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.

There are only 4 verses in this short version

A circle is round; it has no end.
That’s how long I want to be your friend.

A fire burns bright; it warms the heart.
We’ve been friends right from the very start.

New made friends like new made wine,
Age and mellow till the end of time.

Take one hand, then take another;
Put them together and we have each other!

A version from DLTK's Children's Crafts: Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold! A circle is round, it has no end. Girl Scout sisters will always be friends!

Very cute, thanks for the lyrics, but the words on the midi don't match the printed lyrics. We'll go with the printed ones for our Daisy troop.

love this song! I'd like to use a portion of it in a film, does anyone know if someone owns the copyright on the lyrics and tune? Or is the song in the public domain? Thanks!
