It was a lesson well learned for a 3-year-old Oklahoma girl.

Madelyn Eames' mother had taught her a simple song to help her remember how to call 911.

When her mother fainted last month, Madelyn used the song with the words "911 green, 911 green" to summon help via her mother's BlackBerry with its green send button.

Recently released recordings of the call show the girl was able to answer questions about her house and cars outside, leading emergency workers to the home.

This isn't the first time Madelyn has used a cell phone to call for help for her mother.

A year ago, Eaves first learned she had a condition that can cause frequent fainting and made up a simple song around the lyrics "green, green, green." When Eaves lost consciousness back then, the girl pressed the green button on a cell phone. It rang the last person Eaves had called and that person called for help.
