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!

Regretfully they tell us
Cuckoo, cuckoo!
But firmly they compel us
Cuckoo, cuckoo!
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. . .

:-) The little spies were in a production of The Sound of Music over Easter so your post brings me many smiles as I fondly remember the last day that Mini-spy had her mobile phone (she left it there) and Teen spy had her handbag and ipod (ditto).

Oh dear. Terribly sorry. I read this post and the one below - about Waterhouse - as one. I'm now consumed with the idea of Julie Andrews being a pre-Raphaelite model.

Christopher this was my goodbye post on my old blog. . .

. . .you're welcome to join us over at the new(ish) one

and, if you'd like, participate in the Secret Santa there (link in the side bar!)

in the meantime, I'm wondering if the delightful Julie as a pre-Rapaelite is a good thought or a bad thought

ILTV: I'm visiting after a long absence and I find your blog featuring one of my favorite all-time movies. I had the biggest crush on "The Captain" for the longest time!
