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 cook-coo cook-coo, cook-coo
Regretfully they tell us cook-coo
But firmly they compel us cook-coo
To say goodbye cook-coo...
So long farewell, auf wiedersehen good-bye
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long farewell, auf wiedersehen adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you
So long farewell, au revoir auf wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long farewell, auf wiedersehen goodnight
I leave and heave a sigh and say good bye - goodbyyyyyyeeeee!
I'm glad... to go.... I cannot tell a lie
I fleet, I float, I fleetly flee I fly...
The sun... has gone... to bed and so must I...
So long...farewell...auf wiedersehen goodbye...
