By the time you say goodbye
By the time you say cheerio
We'll take a handshake through
On your journey as you go
Keep a pray'r within your heart
That the time will surely fly
To the day when we shall meet again
By the time you say goodbye

Hmmm.....

Yes listeners, we have been coming to you
Live on a crystal ballroom high above the Hotel Jamestown
In picturesque western new york
As your program draws to a close
It gives me profound pleasure to say cheerio
To the strains of Miss Natalie Merchant and her choir
And so now it only remains for me to say... goodnight

By the time you say goodbye
By the time you say cheerio
We'll take a handshake through
On your journey as you go
Keep a pray'r within your heart
That the time will surely fly
To the day when we shall meet again
By the time you say goodbye
