Goodbye to you my trusted friend
We've known each other since we were nine or 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 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 
Were just seasons out of time

 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 Papa it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
 Little children everywhere 
When you see them, I'll be there 

We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone
We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons have all gone

 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
