Hello Little Girl (Lennon/McCartney)

Hello Little Girl was written by John in 1957 based around “an old 30s or 40s song” his mother sang to him. It was performed during the Beatles’ 1962 Decca audition, a recording of which was included on Anthology 1. A home demo with Stu Sutcliffe playing bass guitar is available on some bootlegs.
