So Long, Farewell (1959)
(w) Oscar Hammerstein II (m) Richard Rodgers (I) Musical: The Sound of Music by The Children.
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 cook-coo
Regretfully they tell us, but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you...

So long farewell, auf weidersehen good night
Marta: I hate to go and leave this pretty sight

So long farewell, auf weidersehen adieu
Freidrich: Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you

So long farewell, au revior auf weidersehen
Liesl: I’d like to stay and taste my first champagne

So long farewell, auf weidersehen goodbye
Kurt: I leave and heave a sigh and say good bye - goodbyyyyyyeeeee!
Brigitta: I’m glad... to go.... I cannot tell a lie
Louisa: I flit, I float, I fleetly flee I fly...
Gretl: The sun... has gone... to bed and so must I...

So long...farewell...auf weidersehen goodbye...
Goodbye... Goodbye.... Goodbye.... Goodbye
