Make New Friends

Joseph Parry (1841-1903)

Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver and the other’s gold

A circle’s 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 from the very start

You have one hand, I have another
Put them together and 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 it keep it clean.

Across the land, across the sea
Friends forever we will always be.
