The Last Song

Written by Robbie Smith

The crowds are departing, the footlights are low
And so must the curtain fall
I’ll sing one more song now and then I must go
Adieu to you one and all

Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir
Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir

Now the concert is over the the shadows are long
Follow the corridor
The gallery’s vacant and the orchestra’s gone
The choir will sing no more

Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir
Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir

Ballerina kind-hearted one
She is waiting and watching the sun
Can you see her hiding a frown
Dressed in her angel gown

Now the street lamps are glowing and the river is calm
The city is sleeping still
A train is approaching announcing the dawn
Many a wish to fulfill

Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir
Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir
Goodbye, auf wiedersehen, fare thee well, au revoir
Goodbye, so long, fare thee well, au revoir…
Fare thee well, au revoir
