SO LONG, FAREWELL

There´s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall

And the bells in the steeple too and up in the nursery

An absurd little bird is popping out to say “cuckoo”

(Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo...)

Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us

To say goodbye… (Cuckoo) …to you

So long farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night

We hate to go and leave this pretty sight

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-pa

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-da-da

So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-pa

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-da-da

So long farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen

We´d like to stay and taste your good champagne

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-pa

Pa-pa-da-pa-pa-da-da

So long farewell, auf wiedersehen, Goodbye!

We leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye

Goodbye!

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa!

 

We´ve sung our song and now the record ends.

So long farewell, auf wiedersehen, good friends!

Bam-ba-ra-bam, bam-bam-bam-bam

Bam-ba-ra-bam, bam-bam, bam

So long farewell, the sopranos say goodbye.

So long farewell, the altos say goodbye.

So long farewell, the tenors say goodbye.

So long farewell, the basses say goodbye.

Goodbye! Goodbye! Goodbye!
