There's a sad sort of clanking
>From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping up to say cukoo!
Cukoo! Cukoo!
Regretfully they tell us
But firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you

So long! Farewell!
Aufwiedersehn! Goodnight!
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

So long! Farewell!
Aufwiedersehn! Adeiu!
Adeiu, adeiu to you and you and you

So long! Farewell!
Au'revoir! Aufwiedersehn!
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne

So long! Farewell!
Aufwiedersehn! Goodbye!
I leave and heave a sigh and say 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
