Yakko: There's a word in every language
A word that you should know
A word that means you're friendly
A word used high and low.
Though the way to say it varies
Most everywhere you go
Its meaning never changes
And that word is...
Yw+D: ... Hello!

Yw+D: Hello!
Hello!
Hello! Hello! Hello!
Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!
Hello! Hello!

Yakko: In Germany it's "guten Tag"
Which also means "good day"
"Ni hao" is exactly how
Hello sounds in Taipei.
In Portugal it's "ola"
In Arabic, "salem"
Saying "zravo" means hello
In Macedonian.

It's "aloha" in Hawaii
They say "geia sou" in Greece
In Israel the word's "shalom"
And that means "peace".
The Italians have "buon giorno"
The Viennese, "servus"
When you're at the Eiffel Tower
Just smile and say "salut!"

Yw+D: Hello!
Hello!
Hello!
Hello!
Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!
Hello! Hello!

Yakko: In Nepal they say "namaste"
In Sweden, "goddag"
In Thailand, "sabai dee roo"
"Dobri den" in Prague.
In the Spanish language, "hola"
The Netherlands, it's "dag"
In Japanese, "konnichi-wa"
And "hey" in Little Rock.

When you say "u hali gani"
Swahili is the tongue
In Russian it's "zdrahstvooyteh"
Which sounds way better sung.
If you're ever in Korea
"Ahnyung hahsay yo!"
And in some parts of Brooklyn
Hello is just plain "yo!"

Y+W: Hello!
Dot: Hello!
Y+W: Hello!
Dot: Hello...
Y+W: Hello!
Dot: Hello??
Y+W: Hello!
Dot: Hello!!
Yw+D: Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!
Hello! Hello!

Yw+D: Though the way to say it varies
Most everywhere you go
Its meaning never changes
Hello!
Hello!!
Hello!!!
G'bye!
