Say Hello Wave Goodbye
by David Gray



Standin' at the door of the pink Flamingo cryin' in the rain,
It was a kind of so-so love and I'm gonna make sure it doesn't 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 don't 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 wasn't me,
You're used to wearing less, and now your life's a mess, so insecure you see,
I put up with all the scenes, this is one scene that's goin' to be played my way

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 I'll find someone who's not goin' cheap in the sales,
A nice little housewife who'll give me a steady life and not keep going
Off the rails,

Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
