Say Hello, Wave Goodbye Lyrics

by Soft Cell

Standin' at the door
Of the Pink Flamingo
Crying in the rain
It was a kind of so so love
And I'm gonna make sure
It doesn't happen again

You and I, it had to be
The standing joke of the year
You were a sleep around
A lost and found
And not for me I fear

Take your hands
Off me, please
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look in my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello, goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye

We tried to make it work
You in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit
But it just wasn't me
You're used to wearing less
And now your life's a mess
So insecure you seem

Well I put up with all the scenes
And this is one scene
That's goin' to be played my way

Take your hands
Off me
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look in my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello, goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Under the deep red light
I can see the make up sliding down
Well hey little girl
You will always make up
So take off that
Unbecoming frown

What about me? Well
I'll find someone
Who's not going cheap
In the sales
A nice little house wife
Who'll give me a steady life
And won't keep going off the rails

Take your hands
Off me, please
I don't belong to you, you say
And take a look in my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello, goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Wave goodbye

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello, wave goodbye
Goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

We were born before the wind
Who were we to understand
We were born before the wind
Say goodbye

Through the rain, hail, sleet and snow
Say good bye
And I'm trying, trying, trying
To say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

In the wind and the rain my darling
Say goodbye
In the wind and the rain my darling
