Frankly I don’t care where you've been
Or whether I’ll ever get there
Lately I've heard all your news
And unfortunately just couldn't care

Well you know I'm a sucker for a tall tale
An all of yours sure got me going
But at last you've given your game away
Now your true colours are showing

And oh what what colours they are
Are you listening or did you get bored
Are you too busy at your computer
Purchasing clothes that you can’t afford

So its goodbye Marie
Goodbye from me
I wish you all the luck that you’re so sure that you’ll never need
Its goodbye Marie
Goodbye from me
Maybe, one day we will meet again

You said it's all ours for the taking
But that’s just a phrase you heard
Recycling your means of expression
Just a clumsy collection of words

You came thundering onto the scene
Looking for someone with whom to collide
But you never quite knew what you wanted, did you
Was it really so hard to decide


Well granted you had your successes
And you sure played a mean saxophone
You can talk just like a statesman
But you’re thinking like a stone

With so much to say about people these days
And all that is right and is wrong
Your high horse is tired, he’s limping
Can’t you see you’ve been up there too long?


It’s Goodbye from me
And it’s goodbye from the band
Are you too blind to see
Or just too drunk to understand
That it’s goodbye Marie
Goodbye from me
Maybe, one day we will meet again
