"Brothers in Our World" is the marriage of two songs from Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. After the Frogtown Jubilee Jug Band and Alice Otter each lose the talent contest, they realize that the songs fit together. As Alice begins to sing "Our World," she signals to the boys to come in with their rendition of "Brothers."

Their performance on the frozen riverbank catches the attention of the Riverside Rest's patrons, and the restaurant's owner Doc Bullfrog. Having served as a judge for the night's earlier contests, and realizing that each performance was missing something, he offers the group a job entertaining for his guests.

In the stage adaptation, it is Jane, an aspiring composer, who realizes that the song fits together and inspires the amalgamation.

My Morning Jacket covered the song for The Green Album (although it is listed as "Our World").
