Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

I am and always will be an 80s kid at heart #Ace #Brill #Skill and I love poetry but I love music too... the lyrics, melody and forlorn of #SoftCell's Say Hello, Wave Goodbye is in my top ten of 80's songs and lyrics. Easy! Mine and my sister's favourite song to duet to. Songs that never tire from here to now are pretty genius really. To conclude, I'm off ..."I'll find someone that's not going cheap in the sales."


Standing in the door Of the Pink Flamingo Crying in the rain It was a kind of so-so love And I'm gonna make sure It never happens again

You and I, it had to be The standing joke of the year You were a sleep around A lost and found And not for me I fear

Whoa oh, oh

I tried to make it work You in a cocktail skirt And me in a suit Well, it just wasn't me You're used to wearing less And now your life's a mess So insecure you seem

I put up with all the scenes And this is one scene That's going to be played my way

Take your hands off me I don't belong to you, you see Take a look at my face For the last time I never knew you You never knew me Say hello, goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye


Under the deep red light I can see the makeup sliding down Hey little girl You will always make up So take off that Unbecoming frown

What about me, well I'll find someone That's not going cheap In the sales A nice little housewife Who'll give me a steady life And won't keep going off the rails

Take your hands off me I don't belong to you, you see Take a look at my face For the last time I never knew you You never knew me Say hello, goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye

We've been involved for Quite a while now And to keep you secret Has been hell We're strangers meeting For the first time, okay? Just smile and say hello Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, say goodbye Goodbye Say goodbye Say goodbye Goodbye
