  • Days of devils, kings and clowns
    Angel songs and birthday tunes
    Valentines and wishing wells
    Magic stairways, moods, and Junes
    Silly rhymes and monkeyshines
    Pictures on a stage
    Round and round the records go
    Time to turn the page

    This will be our last song together
    Words will only make us cry
    This will be our last song together
    There's no other way to say good-bye

    Misty faces, far off places
    Came and danced across the stage
    Sha na na's and doo be down's
    The sounds that chased away the blues
    Yesterday is yesterday
    The past is dead and gone
    Nostalgia just gets in the way
    Let's stop hanging on

    This will be our last song together
    Words will only make us cry
    This will be our last song together
    There's no other way to say good-bye

    Now we go our separate ways
    And the world we used to know
    Scratchy worn out 45's
    An echo on the radio
    Tra la days are over now
    Those days of you and me
    Now we know that breaking up is
    Really hard to do

    This will be our last song together
    Words will only make us cry
    This will be our last song together
    There's no other way to say good-bye
