Adios* (Pablo Shaheen ©1985 from Little Voices In My Head)

I've never had an easy time saying my goodbyes
Every time I try, tears get in my eyes
Until I learned the secret of this wonderful reply
I sing adi-adi-adi- adios!
Adi-adi-adi-adi-adi adios!

Adi- up a high; adi- down a los
Adi- from your ears way down into your toes
Singing adi-adi-adi adios!
If you're feeling sad because you know it's time to leave

Mope and I believe, you'll begin to grieve
But if you realize the best of life is yet to be
You'll sing adi-adi-adi adios!
Everyone I've ever met becomes part of myself

Making friends has always meant much more to me than wealth
But I never cling to them; it's better for my health
I sing adi-adi-adi adios!
