We All Stand Together is a song by Paul McCartney and the Frog Chorus. It was from the animated film "Rupert and the Frog Song" and reached #3 in the UK Singles Chart in 1984. Originally released June 1983, McCartney re-released the single on the Christmas charts in 1984.

The song re-entered the UK Singles Chart one year later in 1985, one of three hits to do so, that originally charted in December 1984 ("Do They Know It's Christmas" by Band Aid and "Last Christmas" by Wham! were the other two).

The "Frog Chorus" backing on the song was provided by the King's Singers choral group and the choir of St Paul's Cathedral. [cite web|url=http://www.rupertandthefrogsong.co.uk/media/|title=Media|publisher=Rupert and the Frog Song] The B-side of the single was "We All Stand Together (Humming Version)" performed by Paul McCartney and the Finchley Frogettes.

Two shaped picture discs were issued in 1984 and 1985, the only difference being a plain clear sleeve on the later version.

The music video tied to this song was played at the start of each broadcast day in Canal 12, in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico; minutes before Mira Que Bonito with Romulo Lozano, Raul Salcedo Cascarita and Esperancita Berrones.
