good bye to you my trusted friend
we've known each other since we were nine and ten
together we've climbed hills and trees
learned of love and abc's, skinned our hearts and skinned our knees
good bye my friend it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky
now that spring is in the air
pretty girls are everywhere think of me and i'll be there

we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the hills that we climb were just seasons out of time

good bye papa please pray for me
i was the black sheep of the family
you tried to teach me right from wrong
too much whine and too much song, wonder how i got along
good bye papa it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky
now that spring is in the air
little children everywhere when you'll see them i'll be there

we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the whine and the song like the seasons have all gone

good bye rochelle my little one
you gave me love and helped me find the sun
and every time that i was down
you would always come around and get my feet back on the ground
good bye rochelle it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky
now that spring is in the air
with the flowers everywhere i wish that we could both be there

(one, two, three)
we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the stars we could reach we just starfish on the beach

we had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the whine and the song like the seasons have all gone
all our lives we had fun, we had seasons in the sun
but the hills that we climb were just seasons out of time
