Hey, Ho, Say Hello

Original kids’ song, EU.

“Hey, Ho, Say Hello” is an original song by Singing Bell, based on the traditional 16th century round “Hey, Ho, Nobody home”.

The melody was published in the book Pammelia by Thomas Ravenscroft, a collection of  rounds and canons. Its lyrics are a variation on the original “Hey, ho, nobody home / meat nor drink nor money I have none / Yet I would be very, very merry“.

Lyrics

Hey, ho, say hello
Move your body with me
High and low
Clap and snap and stomp
And all together

Teaching ideas & Activities

We sing the song and perform body percussion at “clap“, “snap“, “stomp“.

After we’ve learned the song well enough, we sing at decrescendo, which means that at the first time we sing quite loud (fortissimo/ff), then just loud (forte/f), then moderately loud (mezzo forte /mf) and so on until really really low (pianississimo/ppp), where the voices are barely heard but the body percussion still goes on at very low volume.

The song can also be performed as a round:

1. Simple way: the second round starts at “clap“.

2. For more experienced students: we start two more rounds both at “move” and “clap“.
