The Lonely Goatherd Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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"
Cuckoo, cuckoo
Verse 2
Regretfully they tell us cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye
Verse 3
To you
Verse 4
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
Verse 5
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
Verse 6
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
Verse 7
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, goodbye!
Verse 8
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
Verse 9
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Verse 10
