A popular Jewish children's song contains the lyrics

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow; Don't walk behind me, I may not lead; Just walk beside me, and just be my friend.

This is actually a quote from Albert Camus I would like to know when and how this became part of the Jewish song.

This first appeared in a Jewish context with the release of Uncle Moishy and the Mitzvah Men vol. 2, in the early 1980s.

Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow;
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead;
Just walk beside me, and be my friend;
And together we will walk in the way of Hashem.
