"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, using double-tracking because she played both the roles of twin sisters, which was a technical feat in the early 1960s. Her British accent is only heard in the spoken line which concludes the bridge section: "Nothing could be greater, say 'Hey Alligator'!!!"
When released on disc, 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 8. The credit on the single reads "Hayley Mills and Hayley Mills", a tongue-in-cheek reference to Mills apparently singing a duet with herself. Released in the UK, it reached the top 20, peaking at number 17. In 1963, the song reached #1 in Mexico. 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."
