You’re going away,
You’re going to leave me,
You’re going away,
How it will grieve me,
Dearie don’t sigh,
Those words “good bye,”
Think how I love you,
Think how I’ll cry;
Don’t let us part,
May be you’ll miss me,
Don’t break my heart,
Come dear and kiss me,
If you say “No” it must be so,
Teach me before I go.

You taught me how to love you,
Now teach me to forget,
Don’t leave me heavy hearted,
And fill me with regret,
Your sweet face haunts me always,
I’m sorry that we met,
You taught me how to love you,
Now teach me to forget.

Something of late,
dear has estranged you,
Love turned to hate,
Oh, how it’s changed you,
Love’s dream is o’er,
Sweet hearts no more,
“Good bye” forever
Not “Au revoir;”
May be some day,
You’ll miss me too, dear,
When I’m away
You will feel blue dear,
May be you’ll sigh,
May be you’ll cry,
Sorry you said “Good Bye.”
