How do I tell her... that I'm goin' away
When I know that she'll... be beggin' meee to stay
And how do I tell her... that the time has come to part
When she's... she's gonna take it so harrrrd

I don't wanna break her heart
I don't wanna see you cry, no...
'Cause I promised her forever
That I'd be by her siiiiiide, so... how do I tell her
How do I tell her, tell her, goodbye

Oh... yeah...

How do I tell her, that my path has gone and changed
When I knoooow, that her, hearrrrt won't be able to stand the pain, oh noo...
And how do I tell her, that I'm movin' on with my life
When... she's... just... gon-na break down and diiiiie... Oh...

I don't wanna break her heart, no
I don't wanna see ya cryyyyy, no
When I promised the girrrrl forever-er, I'd be by her siiiiiide!
So... how do I tell her, tell her, tell herrrr... goodbyyyye

Ohhh... yeah...

Ohhh... listen, she's been forever faithful, honest, and true, Yes she has
MY GOD this has gotta be the worst thing that I ever had to do!
How?
How?
How?
HOW!
HOW! ?
HOOOOW!

How do I tell her... Ohh oh, that the time has come to part
When I knooow... that she's gonna take it so very hard, Yes she is
See I don't wanna break her hearrrrrt
I don't wanna see little girl cryyyyyy...
When I promised her forever-er-er
That I'd be by her side
And how do I tell her, tell her, tell her... goodbye-bye
Bye-bye
Oh baby bye
And woahh-ooh-woahhh... how, how do I tell her
How do I tell her... goodbye baby
Lord somebody tell me
How do I tell the girrrl...

Bye-Bye baby (x8)
Oooh
