If you have two, give one to your friend

4 claps
If you have three, give one to your friend and me

4 claps

It’s always more fun
To share with everyone
It’s always more fun
To share with everyone

If you have one, here is something you can learn
You can still share, just by taking turns

If you got a ball, bounce it to the gang
If there is a new kid, invite him out to hang

If you got one sandwich
Cut that thing in half
If you know a secret joke, tell it and share a laugh

If you got one drumstick
Give one to your friend
Make one beautiful rhythm
Share a beat that never ends

If your feeling lonely, share time with your mom
Share some milk and cookies and sing the sharing song.

It’s always more fun
To share with everyone.
It’s always more fun
To share with everyone.

It’s always more fun
To share with everyone.
It’s always more fun
To share with everyone.
