Back to So Long, Farewell (the Children) lyrics

So long farewell

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 up to say, "Cuckoo" (Cuckoo, cuckoo)
Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye 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 you and you and you.

So long, farewell, au revior, auf wiedersehen.
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
"Yes? No."
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, 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, au wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye
