  • Now sling your hook
    And get on your way
    I don't want you to stay
    You're aggravating me

    Now look
    I want you to know
    You better go
    I'm getting weary
    You better leave town

    Jump in a lake
    I'm tired of having you near me

    Have I made myself clear
    Or don't you hear?
    Buenos noches
    I'll see you again someday

    Don't make it too soon
    I'll see you when I see you
    Adios amigo

    Make yourself scarce
    So long
    So good to know you

    Auf Wiedersehen

    [Chas's Message To Cancer version starts with this verse]

    A most unwelcome visitor turned up the other day
    Made himself a home
    Thought he'd come to stay

    I didn't waste no time to tell him what was on me mind
    I said, "I don't like the looks of you"

    He turned to me with a nasty little grin
    "What are you gonna do about it?"

    I grabbed hold of him
    Caught him by the scruff of the neck and aimed him out the door
    Said, "Don't you come back no more"
