Lyrics

Johnny:
Around this great big world of ours, every single day
When people greet a friend
Well, then, "hello" is what they say

Lily:
But if you find yourself in Port au Prince or Paraguay

Johnny and Lily:
You'll find in every language
They say "hello" a different way

Johnny:
All right, is everyone ready?

Sprites:
Yeah!

Johnny:
Here we go.

In Germany you say "guten tag"

Sprites:
Guten tag

Johnny:
In Israel say "shalom"

Sprites:
Shalom

Johnny:
Say "jambo" when in Kenya
And "buon giorno" when in Rome

Basil:
Jambo

Ginger:
Buon giorno

Lily:
'Cause you can't simply say "Hey, what's up?!"
When you are far from home

Johnny:
Everybody's got a language everywhere you go

Johnny and Lily:
There are so, so many ways to say hello

Basil:
Hi, pal.

Johnny:
Ready for more?

Sprites:
Sure!

Johnny:
In Ireland you say "dia dhuit"

Sprites:
Dia dhuit

Johnny:
In Iran you say "salaam"

Sprites:
Salaam

Johnny:
Say "hola" in Bolivia
Say "chao" in Vietnam

Ginger:
Hola

Root:
Chao

Lily:
In India you say "namaste"

Johnny and the Sprites:
Namaste

Lily:
"Hafa adai" in Guam

Sprites:
Hafa adai

Johnny and Lily:
Gotta greet your buddies in Brazil and Borneo

Johnny and the Sprites:
There are so, so many ways to say "hello"

Basil and Ginger:
It's fun to talk like the locals
When in a different land

Johnny and Lily:
So if you want to make a pal
Use words they'll understand

Root:
I can do that

Lily:
In Denmark you can say "gooddag"

Basil, Ginger and Root:
Goddag

Johnny:
In England say "'allo"

Sprites:
'Allo

Johnny:
Sing this little ditty and the words will flow
'Cause you're just remembering a song ya' know

Johnny and Lily:
Doesn't matter if your name's José or Joe

Johnny and the Sprites:
There are so, so many ways to say "hello."
