Au Revoir

From the album Uh-Oh! Buy Now

- saying “see ya later” instead of "goodbye"

AU REVOIR

I made a Hat from paper    

I glued some glitter on it    

I glued some curly noodles   

With tape to make them stay   

            But I let David wear it 

            He left it on the chair  

            Where Marsha sat down on it  

            Now it doesn’t look the same. 

 

Goodbye Hat, it’s time to go     

It’s sad to say Goodbye I know     

Goodbye Hat, I love you        

But now I’ve got some other things to do

 

My Mom, she gets me dressed

She gets me stuff to eat

She takes me to the place

Where I stay all day

            She has to go to work

            I know she’s sad to leave me

            Because we love each other

            And she’d rather stay and play

 

Goodbye Mom, it’s time to go

It’s sad to say Goodbye I know

Goodby Mom, I love you

But now I’ve got some other things to do

 

When something new begins

There’s a middle, and an end

It’s sad when it ends

But that’s the way things are

            With hats or with Moms

            With ice cream or with friends

            So I don’t say Goodbye

            I say “Au Revoir”

 

Au Revoir, it’s time to go

It’s sad to say Goodbye I know

Au Revoir Mom, I love you

But now we’ve got some other things to do

Wave Goodbye Mom, I love you

Cause now I’ve got some other things to do.
