Let's Be Friends With One Another

Let's be friends with one another. Let's be friends with one another.
Let's be friends with one another. Let's be friends today.
You can sing with a friend, you can howl with a friend,
you can hum with a friend, let's be friends today.
You can jump with a friend, you can clap with a friend,
you can bounce with a friend, let's be friends today.
Let's be friends with one another, let's be friends with one another,
Let's be friends with one another, let's be friends today.

If Your Friendly [Tune: If Your Happy]

The More We Get Together [Tune:"Did You Ever See a Lassie?"]

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together, the happier we'll be.
For your friends are my friends, and my friends are your friends,
The more we get together, the happier we'll be.

The More We Read Together [Tune: “The More We Get Together” ]

The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together, the better it is!
'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.
