And the bells in the steeple too,
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "Cuckoo",
Regretfully they tell us
But firmly they compel us
To say goodbye . . .
.. . to you
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne. . .
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye - Goodbye!
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. . .
