Verse: A A D D E
Chorus/ Bridge: F#min  G#(just base note)  A  C#min D E

Standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
Here was a kind of so-so love 
And I\'m going to make sure it doesn\'t happen again
You and I had to be, the standing joke of the year
You were the owner of the lost and found
And not for me, I feel

Take your hands off me, hey
I don\'t belong to you, you see
Take them in off my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

We try to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt 
And me in a suit, but it just wasn\'t me
You\'re just a wilderness, and now your life\'s a mess
So insecure you see
I\'ve put up with all the scenes, 
This is one scene that started to replace my world

Take your hands off me, hey
I don\'t belong to you, you see
Take them off in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Under the deep red lights, I can see the make-up sliding 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 gonna cheapen sale 
Oh a nice little housewife, who\'ll give me the steady life
And not keep going off the rails

Take your hands off me, hey
I don\'t belong to you, you see
Take them off in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Oh oh oh...
Say hello, wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello, wave goodbye
Goodbye
