The More We Get Together is a traditional British folk song and popular children's song dating to the 18th or 19th century. Like Did You Ever See a Lassie?, its tune was taken from a 1679 Viennese tune by Marx Augustin, Oh du lieber Augustin. This children's song was popularized by Canadian children's entertainer Raffi.

Lyrics[edit]

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