"So Long, Farewell [From The Sound of Music]" as written by and Oscar Hammerstein Richard Rodgers....
There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the church too.
And up in the bedroom, an absurd little bird
Is popping up to say, "Cuckoo cuckoo!

Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you.

So long, farewell,auch wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell auch wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you

So long, farewell, au revoir, auch wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my icy cold soda
Yes? yes!
So long, farewell, auch wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I

So long, farewell, auch wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

(Adults)
Goodbye
