|Single by Hayley Mills|
|from the album Let's Get Together with Hayley Mills|
"Let's Get Together" is a song written by Robert and Richard Sherman for the 1961 Disney film, The Parent Trap. It was sung in the film by teen actress Hayley Mills as a duet with herself. This is because she played twin sisters, which was a technical feat in the early 1960s.
In the Hayley Mills version, her British accent is only heard in the spoken line, concluding the Bridge Section: "Nothing could be greater, Say Hey Alligator!!!"
Annette Funcello and Tommy SandsS did a version of the song in the film version, which is heard during the dance at the summer camp.
The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1961 (b/w "Cobbler, Cobbler") and went on to become a top 10 hit, peaking at number eight. The credit on the single read "Hayley Mills and Hayley Mills," referring to Mills singing a duet with herself. The song's success led Mills to record an album, Let's Get Together with Hayley Mills, which included "Let's Get Together" and Mills' only other hit song, "Johnny Jingo."
