Seasons in the Sun (after J. BREL)


Goodbye to you my trusted friend

We've known each other

Since you and I were ten

Together we´ve climbed hills and trees

Learned of love and abc´s

Skinned our hearts and

Skinned our knees.


Goodbye my friend it´s hard to die

When all the birds

Are singing in the sky

Now that the 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 climbed

Wer'e just seasons out of time.

We had joy we had fun

We had seasons in the sun

But the wine and the song

Like the seasons have are gone.


Goodbye papa, please pray for me

I was the black sheep of the family

You tried to teach me right from wrong

Too much wine and too much song

Wonder how I got along.


Goodbye Michelle 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.


Goodbye Michelle, it's hard to die

When all the birds are singing in the sky

Now that the spring is in the air

With the flowers everywhere

I wish that we could both be there.


All our lives we had fun

We had seasons in the sun

But the stars we could reach

Were just starfish on the beach.


We had joy we had fun

…..

All our lives we had fun

We had seasons in the sun

But the stars we could reach

Were just starfish on the beach.


We had joy we had fun

…..


If You Go Away (after J. BREL)


If you go away on this summer day

Then you might as well take the sun away

All the birds that flew in a summer sky

When our love was new and our hearts were high

When the day was young and the night was lo-ong

And the moon stood still for the night birds song

If you go away, If you go away, If you go away


But if you stay I'll make you a day

Like no day has been or will be again

We'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rain

We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind

Then if you go-o I'll understand

Leave me just enough love to fill up my hand

If you go away, If you go away, If you go away


If you go away as I know you must

There'll be nothin' left in the world to trust

Just an empty room full of empty space

Like the empty look I see on your face

Can I tell you now as you turn to go

I'll be dying slowly till your next hello

If you go away, If you go away, If you go away


But if you stay, I'll make you a night

Like no night has been or will be again

I'll sail on your smile, I'll ride on your touch

I'll talk to your eyes that I-I love so much

But if you go, I won't cry

For the good's gone from goodbye

If you go away, If you go away, If you go away
