Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

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!

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!
