ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I originally got the idea for the song when I was teaching the magnificently talented Jordan Rudess's daughters piano lessons - they had a pet Gecko named Echo, and it seemed like a cool title for a song, "Echo, The Gecko". Then I did some online research, learning as much as I could about the gecko, and turned the info into a song for the young students at Rockland Learning Center Montessori Pre-School to learn, figuring it would be fun and educational at the same time. The school children performed the song at their graduation ceremonies a few years in-a-row. Since then the song has gone on to receive Honorable Mention in the 2008 Malibu Music Awards and Top 10 in the 2006 USA Songwriting Competition. Check out the lyrics, and sing along!

ECHO, THE GECKO

Lyrics and Music

V1 I have a pet named Echo
He is a Tokay Gecko
His eyes are large
And his tail is long
And he sings a special chirping song

C* Echo, the Gecko’s a mighty fine fellow
He changes color in a blink of an eye
He sleeps all day, and he plays all night
He’s my pretty little Echo, the Tokay Gecko

V2 Echo’s my good luck lizard pal
But he longs for a good-lookin’ gecko gal
Maybe he’ll meet his match some day
But I hope he never moves away

C* Echo, the Gecko’s a mighty fine fellow
He changes color in a blink of an eye
He sleeps all day, and he plays all night
He’s my pretty little Echo, the Tokay Gecko

Bridge:
Echo climbs all over me
His skin feels so velvety
Long tail swingin’ side to side
He’s so cute, I love this guy!


C* Echo, the Gecko’s a mighty fine fellow
He changes color in a blink of an eye
He sleeps all day, and he plays all night
He’s my pretty little Echo, the Tokay Gecko

(repeat chorus)

He’s Echo, the Gecko
He’s Echo, the Gecko!

Geicho, are you listening?
What a cute song for kids. It automatically brings to mind that little green guy who sells insurance. Do kids buy insurance? I know their parents do!
