I want to combine the output of two commands on a single line. The two commands are echo and uptime and I want the output to look like:

UPTIME: 03:32PM   up 35 days,  15:54,  208 users,  load average: 0.54, 0.45, 0.52

I have tried [echo "UPTIME: " | uptime], and [echo "UPTIME: " & uptime], etc. but, cannot get it work.
