"Seasons in the Sun" as written by and Jacques Roman/brel Brel....
Goodbye my friend its hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
And all the birds are everywhere
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and ill be there

Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me.
I was the black sheep of the family.
I tried to write when I was left (unintelligible)
I had bought three turds
With my b.b. gun I would kill birds

We had joy. We had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills that we climb
Were just seasons out of time.

All our lives, we had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the stars that we reached
Were just starfish on the beach

Goodbye Michelle my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
All my tears are salty
I think now I was fought to beat

We had joy. We had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills that we climb
Were just seasons out of time.

We had joy. We had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the stars that we reached
Were just starfish on the beach

We had joy. We had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the hills that we climb
Were just seasons out of time.

We had joy. We had fun.
We had seasons in the sun,
But the stars that we reached
Were just starfish on the beach

    General CommentEven though these are clearly the wrong lyrics, I'd like to say that the video of the band recording this on the DVD is quality!

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics (note that they're quite different from the original version by Terry Jacks) :


    Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die
    When all the birds are singing in the sky
    And all the clouds are everywhere
    Pretty girls are everywhere
    Think of me and i'll be there.

    Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me
    I was the black sheep of the family
    (unintelligible line)
    I have (unintelligible line)
    If I could be god I would kill (???)

    We had joy, we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the hills that we climbed
    Were just seasons out of time.

    All are lives we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the stars that we reached
    where just starfish on the beach.

    Goodbye, Michelle, my little one
    I was the apple of the shining sun
    (unintelligible line)
    All my tears are salty
    I think now I will start to leave.

    We had joy, we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the hills that we climbed
    Were just seasons out of time.

    We had joy, we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the stars that we reached
    Where just starfish on the beach.

    We had joy, we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the hills that we climbed
    Were just seasons out of time.

    We had joy, we had fun,
    We had seasons in the sun
    But the stars that we reached
    Where just starfish on the beach.


    For this song that's Dave playing guitar and Kurt for the drums... The last on the DVD that's such a great tribute to the best rock band ever.

    is actually


    Goodbye, Papa, please play for me (I know that's not it in the terry jacks version, but thats what Kurt says)
    I was the black sheep of the family
    At night I know that all is right (?)
    I have boggy turds
    With my BB gun I will kill birds

    Goodbye, Michelle, my little one
    I was the apple of the shining sun
    (unintelligible line)
    All my tears are salty
    I think now I will start to leave.


    i interpreted it as:

    Goodbye Michelle my little one
    I was the apple of the shining sun.
    And la la la la hill we reach.
    All my tears are salty.
    I think now I will start to weep.


    Also, Kurt is singing/drumming, Dave is playing bass, and Krist is playing guitar.
