So Long, Farewell


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 "cuckoo"


Marta, Gretl, Brigitta:
Cuckoo, cuckoo


the Children:Marta, Gretl, Brigitta:
Regretfully they tell usCuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel usCuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye . . .Cuckoo, cuckoo
. . . to you


the Children:
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night


Marta:
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight


the Children:
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu


Friedrich:
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu


the Children:
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen


Kurt:
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye -- Goodbye!


the Children:
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye


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


the Children:
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye


Guests:
Goodbye!
