Song: Make New Friends

2012
03.01

Make New Friends is one of the first songs taught to new Girl Scouts. The words are simple. You can start by teaching just the first verse:

Make new friends,

But keep the old,

One is silver,

The other is gold.

When they have that verse mastered (after probably a year singing it at meetings!) they will be ready to learn the second verse:

A circle’s round

It has no end

That’s how long,

I want to be your friend.

When they have those two verses down (about Junior years!) you can teach them how to sing the song in a round! It’s a lot of fun and sounds really cool too at a parent ceremony.

The website My Virtual Songbook has the first 2 verses, plus a couple of additional verses. I think I have seen up to 10 verses somewhere before!

The video below shows a third verse I had never heard before – with rainbows! I don’t know if they made it up, but it is really cool!

 

 

Do you have a verse that I haven’t listed? What is your favorite verse to Make New Friends?

 

Yours in Scouting!
