​So Long, Farewell

This song is by Rodgers and Hammerstein and appears on the movie soundtrack The Sound of Music (1965).

All 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 coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

Regretfully they tell us (coo-coo)
But firmly they compel us (coo-coo)
To say good bye (coo-coo)
To you...


So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, goodnight
Marta
I hate to go
And leave this pretty sight

Remaining children
So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, adieu
Fredrick
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you

Remaining children
So long, farewell
Au revoir, auf weidersehen
Leisel
I'd like to stay
And taste my first champagne

Remaining children
So long, farewell
Auf weidersehen, goodbye
Kurt
I leave, and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
Goodbye...

Brigitta
I'm glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
Louisa
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly

Gretel
The sun, has gone
To bed and so must I

All children
So long, farewell
Auf weidersehen, goodbye

Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...

Guests
Goodbye
