Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

This song is by Jools Holland and appears on the album Small World Big Band (2001).

Standing 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 never happens again.
You and i, it had to be the, standing joke of the year.
You were a sleeparound, a lost-and-found and not for me I fear.

I tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt, and me in a suit, well 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, and this is one scene that's gonna be played my way.

Take your hands, off me.
I don't belong, to you, you see.
Take a look, at my face for the last time.
I never knew you, you never knew me.
Say hello, goodbye.

Say hello, wave goodbye.

Under the deep red light, I can see the make-up sliding down.
Hey little girl, you will always make-up, so take off that unbecoming frown.
What about me, well, I'll find someone, that's not going cheap in the sales.
A nice little housewife, who'll give me a steady life, and won't keep going off the rails.

Take your hands, off me.
I don't belong, to you, you see.
Take a look, at my face for the last time.
I never knew you, you never knew me.
Say hello, goodbye.

Say hello, wave goodbye.

We've been involved for, quite a while now, and to keep you a secret, it has been hell.
We're strangers, meeting for the first time, ok? Just smile and say hello...

Say hello then wave goodbye,
Say hello then wave goodbye,
Say hello then wave goodbye,
Say hello then wave goodbye,
Say hello, wave goodbye,
Say hello then wave goodbye,
Say hello, wave goodbye,
Goodbye...
