Greetings! My name is “Hello.”
I must have some kind of fame,
‘cause where ‘er I go,
Anywhere, it’s so,
People already know my name.

“Hello!” people say when I’m out,
I know they don’t know me, no doubt.
All over the place
When I show my face
My name is bantered about.

“Hello! How are you today?”
“Hello! Nice to meet you.”
“Hello! May I help you?”

Surprising, it’s true,
When strangers know you,
Whatever you do,
And wherever you go,
They all seem to know,
Your name.
