Gilbert O'Sullivan Hello, It's Goodbye Lyrics

Last updated:

Take off your coat pull up a chair
Sit next to me not over there
How about a drink what would you like
Would a scotch on the rocks be alright
Then as the lights invariably dim
I gently touch your thigh
And before you know it, Hello it's goodbye.
You tell me that you're not that type
And I'm not saying that you're not right
All that I'm asking is a chance
To do more with you than just holding hands
This is the story of my life
Every chance I get to try
Before you know it, Hello it's goodbye.

Now I'm not saying that I'm upset
But for all the pleasure that I can get
I might just as well go join a monastery
(just as well join a monastery)

I'm not saying that I'm upset
But for all the pleasure that I've been getting
I might just as well go join a monastery
(just as well join a monastery).

Sometimes I think I'm up against
Something that doesn't make much sense
Like when I'm with a girl like you
I'd do everything a man should do
Then when I feel the time is right
I say no need to be shy
And before you know it Hello it's goodbye.
