Likkle Rhymin' Fingy

What seems is not always as it seems
and the following likkle rhymin' fingy
is a case in point. It is in fact the song
lyrics I wrote for Sir Cliff Richard, who
still needs a number one hit in the UK
charts this year, to continue his record
of a number one hit in every decade, for
six decades.



GOODBYE NO NO

Goodbye no no, goodbye

I don’t think so

My love affair with you

ain’t over yet

It seems like yesterday

when we first said hello,

Goodbye no no, goodbye

I don’t think so

I sing this song for you

to let you know

that you are my number one

I won’t let you go

Goodbye no no, goodbye

I don’t think so

Never never, say

never ever, though

Cos who knows what tomorrow

may bring don’t you know

Repeat

  2. Great words - he should use them.
    He'd no doubt have had his No 1 this decade if there wasn't a 'youf' movement on the radio to stop him.
    So much for respect for this countries first pop superstar.

  13. I hear the song in this, though I'm not familiar with the singer. "Goodbye no no, goodbye" is a nice refrain.

  15. I don't know Sir Cliff, but I could hear this one in my head, like a song, or even a short spoken word piece.
