Ah, remember this?
Why I must have been thirteen when this came out
Or was it fourteen? Or was it twenty-two?
I could have been twelve actually

Just because you left and said, goodbye
Do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so
Darlin', I would rather let you go

Just because I want someone who's kind
With a heart as good and pure as mine
But maybe I am askin' for too much
Darlin', please don't ever break my heart

I know you think you're smart
Just runnin' around and breaking lovers hearts

Just because you left and said, goodbye, hey
Do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so
Darlin', I would rather let you go

This is Dr. Winston O' Boggie saying goodnight
From record plant east, New York
We hope you had a swell time
Ev'rybody here says, 'Hi', goodbye

Just because you left and said, goodbye
Do you think that I will sit and cry?
Even if my heart should tell me so
Darlin', I would rather let you go

Goodbye, so long
Been a long year
