Say Hello Wave Goodbye
Standin' at the door of the pink Flamingo cryin' 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 had to be the standing joke of the year
You were a run-around, a lost and found and not for me I feel

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
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

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 see
I put up with all the scenes, this is one scene that's goin' to be played my way
Say hello and wave goodbye

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
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

Under the deep red light I can see the make-up slidin' down,
Well hey little girl you will always make up so take off that unbecoming frown,
As for me, well I'll find someone who's not goin' cheap in the sales,
A nice little housewife, who'll give me a steady life and not keep going off the rails,

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
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
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 waves
Who are we to understand
We were born before the waves
Say goodbye

Through the rain, hail, sleet and snow
Say goodbye
Get on the train, train, train
Say goodbye

Say goodbye
Say goodbye
Say goodbye

In the wind and the rain now, darling
Say goodbye
In the wind and the rain now, darling
