Children - So Long, Farewell lyrics

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, "Cuckoo"
(Cuckoo, cuckoo)

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

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 revoir, auf wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, 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, auf wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
