Version 1
Sing as a whole group the first few times. Then divide your group in half. Have one half start the song, and when they are about to begin “a circle is round”, have the second half start from the beginning “make new friends”. Try again, but divide into 3 groups this time! 

Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
and the other is gold.
A circle is round
it has no end.
That’s how long
I want to be your friend.

Version 2

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
