"The Saddest Thing" as written by and Melanie Safka....
And the saddest thing
Under the sun above
Is to say goodbye
To the ones you love.

All the things
That I have known
Became my life
My very own.

But before you know,
You say goodbye, oh!
O, Time, goodbye!
It's time to cry!

But I will
not weep
nor make
a scene.
I just say:
"Thank you, Life,
For having been."

And the hardest thing
Under the sun above
Is to say goodbye
To the ones you love.

No!
I will not weep!
Nor make a scene!
I'm gonna say:

"Thank you life!"
"For having been!

And the loudest cry
Under the sun above
Is the silent goodbye
From the ones you love.
