So Many Friends

Post Author

Lyricist’s note: These lyrics are accompanied by a jaunty, bouncing tune that would engage children. It offers a clear message about cooperating with nature and with humanity to make the world into the beautiful habitat it started out as. It suggests that when we help nature, nature helps us.

So Many Friends

Verse 1

Take a little walk and have a look around you

There’s so many friends who are happy that they’ve found you

They’re hopping in the grass and they’re sitting in the trees

They’re jumping in the water and floating on the breeze

Some like to get up and see where they can go

And some stay where they are and grow grow grow

You see them in the country you see them in the city

And every single one loves to sing this little ditty:

Chorus

Come along let’s make the world better

We can’t go wrong if we all work together

Let’s work and play in every kind of weather

Let’s start today we can all work together

Come along let’s make the world better

We can’t go wrong if we all work together

Let’s work and play in every kind of weather

Start today, let’s put our hearts and hands together

Verse 2

So many friends who love it when you tell them

How special you think they are and all you’ll do to help them

Cuz they’re so smart they all know you’re special too

Caring about each other is what friends will always do

You can make their world safe and keep their world clean

From the water to the clouds and everywhere in between

Help them with your heart, and your hands and head too

Cuz all the good you do for them will come right back to you.

Chorus

Come along let’s make the world better

We can’t go wrong if we all work together

Let’s work and play in every kind of weather

Let’s start today and we can always work together

Bridge

There’s nothing like a team when there’s something big to do

Working together can always be such fun

And just because it seems like the job’s too big for you

Remember that you’re never the only one (You’re not alone!)

Verse 3

Some have gotta push and some have gotta pull

Some have to keep it empty and some have to make it full

You might not know what part you’ll play, but this is what you’ll find

You can’t go wrong you’ll get along once you’ve made up your mind

A gentle walk through life will make the world shine like a jewel

You’ll always have the winning team when kindness is your rule

Hearts and heads together always make the best ideas

When everybody wins – Guess what? – Everybody cheers! [Cheering]

Chorus

Come along let’s make the world better

We can’t go wrong if we all work together

Let’s work and play in any kind of weather

Start today and let’s all work together

Come along let’s make the world better

We can’t go wrong if we all work together

Let’s work and play in every kind of weather

Start today and let’s all work together
