There's a sad sort of clanging From the clock in the hallAnd the bells in the steeple too,And up in the nurs'ry an absurd little birdIs popping out to say "coocoo".
Regretfully they tell us,But firmly they compel us To say goodby 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'voir, 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, Good bye
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!
