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

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




  1. Sir Cliff will be most pleased with this

  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.

  3. Hey this was so cool !! Loved it...Goodbye no no....nice.
    i was actually singing it!!

  4. Would love to hear this with music.

  5. This is wonderful.

    I am a diehard fan of his!

    I got almost all his albums!

  6. sounds every bit like a song and should be one for sure!!!

  7. Hope he is reading and practicing this now. Very generous of you.

  8. this would make a hit on the charts

  9. Interesting use of the prompt. I Love it!!

  10. Where's my uke? I wanna sing this one

  11. I can just picture him singing this. I'd love to hear it on the radio!

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

  13. I could definitely hear this one as song.

  14. 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.

  15. nice trying to sing it now

  16. Make your profile as appealing as you possibly can, use catchy phrases and prevent being boring.
    The internet dating arena has grown immensely as more individuals are
    depending upon internet to fulfill new people, find their someone special, friendship and others
    activities. You have complete control that you might want to make contact with
    and which you want to block from.

  17. Should I get a job or stay on welfare? I’m 32 years older on section 8 and I don’t desire to function because I would not have a
    home easily worked for these $12 an hour jobs here in California I would
    have to pay for a couch at that price . What should I do Focus on bettering yourself so
    you can get a job that pays more than $12 per hour. For the time
    being, take the $12 each hour job and focus on living inside your means, which may include moving to a
    far more affordable area.
