What's so good about goodbye
All it does is make you cry
Well if leavin' causes grief
Goodbye can break your heart
Tell me what's so good about goodbye
I could have done without it

Won't somebody tell me now
How can goodbye be good to a lover who really cares
And another thing I would like to clarify
Is how can farewell be fair
I could have done without it

Ah, you and I could never say this is goodbye
Girl, well it makes me so sad
