Little Sir Echo

Lyrics

Little Sir Echo
How do you do
Hello, Hello.

Little Sir Echo
I'm feeling blue
Won't you come over and play.

You're a nice little fellow
I can tell by your voice
But you're always so far away.

The second stanza makes the song a little longer

Little Sir Echo, how yo you do?
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Little Sir Echo, we'll answer you
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Won't you come over and play? (and play)
You're a nice little fellow
I know by your voice
But you're always so far away (away).

Little Sir Echo is very shy
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Little Sir Echo will make reply
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
Won't you come over and play? (and play)
You're a nice little fellow
I know by your voice
But you're always so far away (away).

Is this a World War 1 song?

My Mother sang this song to me when I was very small and I sang it to my three children and now I sing it to my grandchildren. My five year old grandson is sleeping over tonight and he could not get to sleep.I started singing different songs to him .When I started Little Sir Echo he jumped up in bed and said "Nanny I can't believe it.The wiggles sang that song. Where did you hear it?" First I asked what are the wiggles and then told him that my mommy used to sing it to me and that was the only time I ever heard it.When he fell asleep I had to look it up and find out if I was singing it correctly and I was.I always thought it was something my mom made up until I started reading these wonderful comments.I am now 65 and my mom passed away 17 years ago and reading all this tonight has brought tears to my eyes.

It is a great little song that I learned as a child. For some reason it came back to me when I was waking early this week. I will look further for its origins and past it on to my grandchildren. Jim Ebbeson

My grandparents used to sing this tosing this to me when I was younger and it's the only thing I remember from that time.

My step grandmother would sing Little Sir Echo to my sister and me when we were afraid during a black out during World War ll. It was comforting to us and to her also I am sure...

When I was a baby in 1946 I was hospitalized in a city about 65 miles from where my Mother was. This was a great concern in those days when transportation in the desert was more difficult. The Nuns (nurses), assured Mother they would care for me as she would. Skeptical though she visited unexpectedly to see and hear the nurses cradling me in their arms, walking about the room singing this song, Little Sir Echo. She learned it , and once home as a child, she sang it to me often. I just had to place her in an inpatient hospice far away and I sang to her this time, and I cried, knowing how much this little tune meant to us both. I am now 66 years old.
