Lyrics

Arthur

My echo doesn't sound like me
My echo doesn't sound like me
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But my echo doesn't sound like me
It's not what it used to be
My echo doesn't sound like me

I went to Echo Point with my friends. It was supposed to be fun. They all yelled and heard their echoes.

Friends

Hello! (voices echo back)

Buster

Buster! (voice echoes back)

Arthur

But when I called out, my echo didn't say what I said. It went like this:

Arthur

Hello

Arthur's echo

Goodbye

Arthur

Goodbye

Arthur's echo

Hello

Arthur

Where did you go, my echo? Yodel-odel-lady-hoo!

Arthur's echo

Hey! I'm not even trying that one. Too much work.

Arthur

My echo doesn't sound like me
My echo doesn't sound like me
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But my echo doesn't sound like me
It's not what it used to be
My echo doesn't sound like me

The next day, I went back with my family. Only it was worse. Hello!

Arthur's echo

Moo!

Arthur

See? My echo's broken.

D.W.

Maybe not. Maybe you're a cow.

Arthur

I am not a cow!

D.W.

When was the last time you checked?

Arthur

Hello

Arthur's echo

Goodbye

Arthur

Goodbye

Arthur's echo

Hello

Arthur

Where did you go, my echo? Yodel-odel-lady-hoo!

Arthur's echo

No yodeling. Ah, my head. It's so boring.

Arthur

My echo doesn't sound like me
My echo doesn't sound like me
I haven't changed, I'm still the same
But my echo doesn't sound like me
It's not what it used to be
My echo doesn't sound like me

What could be wrong?

Arthur's echo

You're always yelling at me. You never ask how I'm feeling.

Arthur

Oh, well how are you feeling?

Arthur's echo

I'm okay, thanks for asking.

Arthur

What do you want to do now?

Arthur's echo

Whatever you say is okay with me.

Arthur

Anything I say?

Arthur's echo

Anything I say?

Arthur

Alright!

Arthur's echo

Alright!

Arthur

But now I have new a problem.

Arthur's echo

But now I have a new problem.

Arthur

My echo's with me all the time.

Arthur's echo

My echo's with me all the time. It's because you're so nice.

Arthur

It's because I'm so nice?

Arthur's echo

Hey, now you're echoing me!

Arthur

Cut it out!

Arthur's echo

Cut it out!

Arthur

Cut it out!

Arthur's echo

You're echoing me again.

Arthur

Mom!

Arthur's echo

Mom!
