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.
