Oh please, don't talk about me when I'm gone
Although our friendship ceases from now on

Hey Carmen, if you can't say anything real nice
It's better not to talk at all, that's my advice

We are parting
You go your way
I'll go mine
It's best that we do
Here's a little kiss
I hope that this brings lots of love to you

Makes no difference how I carry on
'Cause baby I know you'd better not talk about me when I'm gone
