Bye, bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
I maybe seeing you around
When I change my living standard and move uptown,
Bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
Whoa so, so long, my honey, so long.
I guess I'm gonna make it OK,
I'll see you in a funny place some old day,
So long, my honey, so long.
Well, I get the feeling I could chase you clean on in the ball
And wind up staying pull off, put down strung out and stalled.
Honey, I ain't got time to wait on you or to fetch your super ball,
I got lots of things I've got to do.
Bye, bye-bye, baby, bye-bye. I guess I'm gonna make it OK,
I'll see you in a funny place some old day,
Bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
Well so, so long, my honey, so long,
Too bad you had to drift away,
'Cause I could use some company right on this road,
Up on this road I'm on today, yeah hey-yeah!
Well, I know that you got things to do and places to be.
And I guess I'll have to find the thing you placed on me.
I may wind up in the street or sleep beneath a tree,
Still I guess you know honey I've gotta go.
Bye, bye-bye, baby, bye-bye.
Lord, I might've been your wife,
But you settled for a place right in my heart,
You didn't want a place in my life.
So, so long, my honey, so long.
I guess you know you're on your own,
It seems we just got lost somewhere out in the world
And you left me here to face it all alone,
You left me here to face it all alone,
You left me here to face it all alone,
Yeah hey-yeah,
I said, bye, bye-bye baby, baby bye-bye, whoaa!
Right now we'll do a children speed song called "Easy Rider".
