about

In the most remote parts of Africa one will come across folk walking for miles, from who knows where to who knows where? This is an important question, and in coming across such a walker one will inevitably be asked, 'Where you come from?' followed shortly by 'Where you go?" It is polite to enquire back.
Due to extreme language limitations on my part the answer to both questions is also inevitable, "There," accompanied by pointing one way and then the other.
I found myself 'over there/here' in Canada needing a final verse to complete the song. After over a quarter of a century I still have second thoughts about the weather.

HELLO!
Words&Music: Roger Seldon April 2008, Campbell River, BC.

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?
We can make you smile. MMmmmmmmm.

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?

Because it’s to bloody cold
Because it is always rain
And when it’s not rain it’s grey
And when it’s not grey it’s much too WHITE!!

Because it’s to bloody cold
Because it is always rain
And when it’s not rain it’s grey
And when it’s not grey it’s much too WHITE!!

HELLO! Where you come from?
HELLO! Where you go?
HELLO! Where you come from?
Why don’t you stay, stay here for a while?
