Family Of Friends

Music and lyrics by Peter Alsop

©2002 Moose School Productions

This song helps us discuss our human similarities, our families, our need to feel lifted and to lift and support others, our ability to apologize and forgive when mistakes are made or feelings hurt, and the importance of circles in our social interactions and nature, ... healing, inclusive.  Enjoy.




Here we are again, a family of friends                   D-A, A7-D

A family of friends, where love never ends.          D-A, G-A7-D



We each have a face, two eyes and a nose

And we each have a smile, ‘cause our happiness shows!



We’re kids and we’re grown-ups, fathers and mothers

Friends and we’re cousins, sisters and brothers



We miss your smile, when you’re away

We’re glad you came back, so we can play



We all make mistakes, here’s what we do

We say “I am sorry, if I hurt you”

Chorus (2x)


Safe in our circle with love that we bring

We feel all our feelings, we laugh and we sing!

Chorus/ Chorus
