Lyrics

Goodbye-ee, goodbye-ee!
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee,
Though it’s hard to part, I know,
I’ll be tickled to death to go.
Don’t cry-ee, don’t sigh-ee!
There’s a silver lining in the sky-ee.
Bonsoir*, old thing!
Cheerio, chin chin**!
Nahpoo! Toodleoo!***
Goodbye-ee!

*Bonsoir = Good night (French)
**Chin chin = Chinese toast
***”Nahpoo” and “toodle-oo” are corruptions of the French il n’y en a plus (there is no more) and à tout à l’heure (see you later). (source)
