Mister President, you asked to see me

I know you're busy

What do you need, sir

Sir
I wanna give you a word of warning

Sir, I don't know what you heard
But whatever it is, Jefferson started it

Thomas Jefferson resigned this morning

You're kidding

I need a favor

Whatever you say, sir, Jefferson will pay for this behavior

Shh, talk less

I'll use the press
I'll write under a pseudonym, you'll see what I can do to him

I need you to draft an address

Yes, he resigned, you can finally speak your mind

No, he's stepping down so he can run for President

Ha, good luck defeating you, sir

I'm stepping down, I'm not running for President

I'm sorry, what

One last time
Relax, have a drink with me
One last time
Let's take a break tonight
And then we'll teach them how to say goodbye
To say goodbye
You and I

No, sir, why

I wanna talk about neutrality

Sir, with Britain and France on the verge of war, is this the best time

I want to warn against partisan fighting

But

Pick up a pen, start writing
I wanna talk about what I have learned
The hard won wisdom I have earned

As far as the people are concerned
You have to serve, you could continue to serve

No, one last time
The people will hear from me
One last time
And if we get this right
We're gonna teach ‘em how to say
Goodbye
You and I

Mister President, they will say you're weak

No, they will see we're strong

Your position is so unique

So I'll use it to move them along

Why do you have to say goodbye

If I say goodbye, the nation learns to move on
It outlives me when I'm gone
Like the scripture says
Everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree
And no one shall make them afraid
They'll be safe in the nation we've made
I wanna sit under my own vine and fig tree
A moment alone in the shade
At home in this nation we've made
One last time

One last time

Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration
I am unconscious of intentional error
I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects 
Not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors
I shall also carry with me

The hope
That my country will
View them with indulgence
And that
After forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal
The faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion
As I myself must soon be to the mansions of rest
I anticipate with pleasing expectation that retreat 
In which I promise myself to realize the sweet enjoyment of partaking
In the midst of my fellow citizens, the benign influence of good laws
Under a free government, the ever-favorite object of my heart
And the happy reward, as I trust
Of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers	

One last time

George Washington's going home

Teach 'em how to say goodbye

George Washington's going home

You and I

George Washington's going home

Going home

George Washington's going home

History has its eyes on you

George Washington's going home

We're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye (teach 'em how to say goodbye)

Teach 'em how

To say goodbye

To say goodbye (say goodbye)

Say goodbye (say goodbye) 

One last time
