Echo

Standing in the valley where the river runs
Warmed by the light of the morning sun
I open up my mouth and I start to sing
My voice comes back and the mountains ring

Hello
Yoo hoo
Echo
Is that you?
Can you hear me
Call you?
Echo
Yoo hoo

Singing out loud when no one’s there
Might seem kind of silly but I don’t care
When I hear my voice come back again
Sometimes it seems I’m singing to my best friend

Hello
Yoo hoo
Echo
What’s new?
Sunshine
Nice day
I’m fine
Okay

Spoken:
Hello
Hey you
Stop yelling
Right now
I mean it
Very funny
Ha ha ha
Aroooo

Sun sinks low and then goes down
This old world keeps a turning round
Sky grows dark and the stars all shine
And I call out to that friend of mine

Hello
Yoo hoo
Echo
Day’s through
Starlight
Moonbeams
Echo
Sweet dreams
Echo
Sweet dreams

Spoken:
Good night
Go to bed
Right now
I mean it
I don’t wanna come up there
Please
All right (Okay)
(Snoring)
