Looking for an Echo
At Erasmus Hall High School, we used to harmonize Me and Benny and Aaron and two Italian guys We were singing oldies, but they were newies then And today when I play my old 45's, I remember when We'd practice in a subway, in a lobby or a hall Crowded in a doorway, singing doo wops to the wall And if we went to a party and they wouldn't let us sing We'd lock ourselves in the bathroom, and nobody could get in 'Cause we were looking for an echo, an answer to our sound A place to be in harmony A place we almost found And the girls would gather 'round us, and our heads would really swell We'd sing songs by the Moonglows, the Harptones, and the Dells And when we sang "Sincerely," we really sang it high Even though it was falsetto, we almost reached the sky We've sung a lot of changes since 1955 And a lot of bad arrangements we've tried to harmonize Now we've turned into oldies, but we were newies then And today when I play my old 45's, I remember when We were looking for an echo, an answer to our sound A place to be in harmony A place we almost found
