Lingua: Inglese



[1984]
Lyrics & Music by Tim Lowe

Original audio cassette recording circa 1984 re-equalised in 2010 to try to correct the deteriorating sound quality. Nothing else added, nothing taken away.
Like an old painting, it's faded with age. Tim – guitars / vocals / bass / harmonica.
Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne
I have got obligations that I do not understand
But they say that other nations need a helping hand
I am young and I am healthy and they say that I'll do fine
Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne

When you see her tell her this for me, when you see her tell her this
I'm not going for the glory, I'm not going out of lust
I'm not following the flag, I'm not following the cross
But I'll step into that uniform and go, because I must
Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne

If I send you some money will you see that's she's alright
I don't want her to think of me so I might just not write
But I'll carry a photograph of her until I die
Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne

Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne
I don't know what else I can say
But my life up to now seems like one long holiday
Although I've suffered like the rest, and I've worked like a slave
Say goodbye to Marianne for me, say goodbye to Marianne.
