Hello Little Girl

song

Hello little girl
Hello little girl
Hello little girl

When I see you everyday
I say, mmm mmm, hello little girl
When you're passing on your way
I say, mmm mmm, hello little girl

When I see you passing by
I cry, mmm mmm, hello little girl
When I try to catch your eye
I cry, mmm mmm, hello little girl

I send you flowers
But you don't care
You never seem to see
Me standing there

I often wonder
What you're thinking of
I hope it's me
And love, love, love

So I hope there'll come a day
When you'll say, mmm mmm
You're my little girl

It's not the first time
That it's happened to me
It's been a long, lonely time
And it's so funny, funny to see
That I'm about to lose my mi-mi-mind

So I hope there'll come a day
When you'll say, mmm mmm
You're my little girl, mmm mmm mmm
You're my little girl, mmm mmm mmm
You're my little girl, oh yeah
You're my little girl

"Hello Little Girl" is the first song ever written by John Lennon. According to Lennon, he drew on an old "Thirties or Forties song" that his mother sang to him. Written in 1957, it was used as one of the songs at the Beatles unsuccessful Decca audition in 1962. They recorded a home demo of it, with Stuart Sutcliffe on bass, which is available only on bootleg currently.

In 1963, the English Merseybeat band the Fourmost made a recording of the song in the Abbey Road Studios (produced by George Martin) and released it as their debut single. Two weeks later Gerry & The Pacemakers also recorded a version of the song, but the version by the Fourmost was selected for the issue and reached number 9 in the United Kingdom.

Albeit different than the previous version with Sutcliffe, the Beatles' version of the song can be found on Anthology 1, with John Lennon as the lead singer.

The Fourmost' version of this song is also on The Songs Lennon and McCartney Gave Away.

The song appears in the 2010 biopic Nowhere Boy in a scene showing Lennon singing it for McCartney while recording it on a small reel-to-reel tape recorder. The songwriting credits in the movie specify John Lennon only.
