Say Hello Wave Goodbye:

Standin at the door of the pink Flamingo cryin in the rain,
It was a kind of so-so love and Iím gonna make sure it doesnít happen again,
You and I had to be the standing joke of the year,
You were a runaround, a lost and found and not for me I feel,

Take your hands off me, hey,
I donít belong to you, you see,
And take a look in my face, for the last time,
I never knew you, you never knew me,
Say hello goodbye,
Say hello and wave goodbye,

We tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt and me in a suit but it just wasnít me,
Youíre used to wearing less, and now your lifeís a mess, so insecure you see,
I put up with all the scenes, this is one scene thatís goin to be played my way

(Chorus) Say hello and wave goodbye

Under the deep red light I can see the make-up slidin down,
Well hey little girl you will always make up so take off that unbecoming frown,
As for me, well Iíll find someone whoís not goin cheap in the sales,
A nice little housewife whoíll give me a steady life and not keep going
off the rails,

(Chorus)
Say hello and wave goodbye(repeated)
