Can Anyone Help Me with These Lyrics: "Old Friends" from The Christmas Toy

    Ok, don't ask me why I'm thinking about a Christmas special in July, but I've desperatly been trying to remember the lyrics to the song Rugby sings to Mew at the end of The Christmas Toy. I've found the lyrics that the entire group sings together, or maybe it was the version that was used in "Muppet Family Christmas", the one that goes:
    Old friends, new friends
    Home with the family
    We'll be together at Christmas
    Snowflakes, sleighbells
    Bringing back memories
    We'll be together at Christmas
    Some things change with passing years
    Let this feeling stay
    Old friends, new friends
    Hoping we'll always be
    Here with each other together
    On Christmas Day.

    The version I'm looking for is different, it starts with "Old friends, dear friends, friends who have gone away" and ends with "first of all, most of all, I love you". Does anyone know the lyrics in the middle?

    I remember both of those versions. I think the second one was a reprise after Mew was alive again.

    I've looked on the net too, only found those lyrics you have in your post, sorry!

    Thank you so much. At least now I know I'm not crazy and there really were two versions of the song!

    The lyrics of the first version, when Rugby sings his sorrow to the frozen Mew goes:

    Old friend, dear friend
    Friend whose gone away
    I want to tell you I love you
    I wish you'd hear
    Things I meant to say
    I want to tell you I love you
    Always you believed in me
    But you never knew
    Old friend, dear friend
    So much I long to say
    First of all, most of all
    I love you
