Terry Jacks - Seasons in the sun
Tekst en muziek: Jacques Brel / Vertaling: Rod McKuen
(1974)






Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
We’ve known each other since we were nine or ten
Together we’ve climbed hills and trees
Learned of love and ABC’s
Skinned our hearts and skinned our knees



Goodbye my friend, it’s hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and I’ll be there



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time



Goodbye Papa, please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family
You tried to teach me right from wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along



Goodbye Papa, it’s hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
Little children everywhere
When you see them, I’ll be there



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone



Goodbye Michelle, my little one
You gave me love and helped me find the sun
And every time that I was down
You would always come around
And get my feet back on the ground



Goodbye Michelle, it’s hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that the spring is in the air
With the flowers everywhere
I wish that we could both be there



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach
Were just starfish on the beach



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the wine and the song
Like the seasons, have all gone



All our lives we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the hills that we climbed
Were just seasons out of time



We had joy, we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
