Listen and Learn Music: A New Way to Say Goodbye

A New Way to Say Goodbye

When I introduced a brand-new goodbye song in one of my classes this morning, I was met with mixed emotions...from the staff! The students seemed to respond very positively to the new tune, while several of my coworkers didn't hide their disappointment that I strayed from the usual goodbye song. They were good sports, though, and were quick to adapt and sing along. I'm lucky to have classroom staff that are so supportive of the music therapy program :)

Like the hello song I discussed yesterday, today's goodbye song replaces several old standbys that have passed their prime. See what you think:

It’s time for me to go, oh, oh, oh,
Music is over for today.
It’s time for me to go, oh, oh, oh,
So tell me, what do we say?

Goodbye, goodbye,
Farewell, and so long.
Goodbye, goodbye,
This is the goodbye song.

Wish I could stay, hey, hey, hey,
But I’m afraid our time is through.
Wish I could stay, hey, hey, hey,
But I have to sing goodbye to you.

Goodbye, goodbye,
Farewell, and so long.
Goodbye, goodbye,
This is the goodbye song.

And now I must say goodbye to YOU, because it is my bedtime! Now that school is back in session, I find that I need an extra hour or so of sleep in order to keep my energy up all day long. My job is extremely gratifying, but it is also extremely exhausting!
