SAY GOOD-BYE
 
div
 
Mickey Jay went away exactly seven years today
Returned to find his missis with a family of five
She said, 'Ted, cousin Ted, heard a rumour you were dead
That's the truth now, Mickey Boy, as sure as I'm alive
I'll see you some other time not now
My other man will soon be home and so to save a row,'

Chorus: Say Good-bye, say Good-Bye
For goodness sakes say Good-bye
If my old man comes home to tea
And finds you here what will happen to me?
It's seven years since I saw you last
My word how the time does fly
If you want to kiss me Mick you must get it over quick
And for goodness sakes say Good-bye.


Mick said, 'Jane, dear old Jane, now that I've come home again
I've got lots of money and I want you, yes, I do.'
She said, 'Mick, dear old Mick, I know you're acting like a brick
But don't you understand, old dear, our love affair is through
You stand there looking like a silly goat
Go back to where you've come from please
And catch the quickest boat.'

Chorus 1: Say Good-bye, say Good-Bye
For goodness sakes say Good-bye
If my old man comes home to tea
And finds you here what will happen to me?
Here's the kids coming home from school
My word how the time does fly
Why look, here's your eldest Mad,
Come and shake hands with your Dad
And for goodness sakes say Good-bye.


Chorus 2: Say Good-bye, say Good-Bye
For goodness sakes say Good-bye
If my old man comes home to tea
And finds you here what will happen to me?
He weighs sixteen stone or more
And he stands just six feet high
They'll be a funeral as well
And the flowers we won't smell
So for goodness sakes say Good-bye.
