From the wiki: “‘Hello Little Girl’ was the first song ever written by John Lennon. According to Lennon, he drew ‘on an old ’30s or ’40s song’ that his mother sang to him. Written in 1957, ‘Hello Little Girl’ was used as one of the songs at the Beatles unsuccessful Decca audition in 1962. In 1963, the English Merseybeat band The Fourmost made a recording of the song (produced by George Martin) and released it as their debut single. Two weeks later, Gerry & The Pacemakers also recorded a version of the song, but the version by the Fourmost was selected for the issue and reached #9 in the United Kingdom.”
