So Long Baby
Del Shannon Lyrics


I see you're laughing and ah
Telling everyone in town
That you've made a fool of me
Well go and talk some more 'cause
Baby I don't care no more
You don't bother me at all

'Cause I got news for you
I was untrue too
And I don't care what you say
So go and laugh some more 'cause
Baby I don't care no more
I've got another lover of my own

Step by step you put me down,
Always calling me a clown
If you ever go away, promise me that you'll stay
Far, far, far, far, far from me

Now that we've played our game
I guess we're both to blame
We tried to break each other's hearts
You had one jump on me but
I jumped twice you see
It's all over now be on your way

So long baby, be on your way-e-yay-e
I had a ball, you thought I'd fall
You had one jump on me but
I jumped twice you see
It's all over now be on your way

So long baby, be on your way!
So long baby, be on your way!
So long baby, be on your way!

I see your laughin' and
Tellin' everyone in town
That you've made a fool of me
Well, go and talk some more
'Cause baby I don't care no more
You don't bother me at all
'Cause I got news for you
I was untrue too
And I don't care what you say
So go and laugh some more
'Cause baby I don't care no more
I've got another lover of my own
Step by step you put me down
Always callin' me a clown
If you ever go away, promise me that you'll stay
Far, far, far, far, far from me
Now that we've played our game
I guess we're both to blame
We tried to break each others hearts
You had one jump on me
But I jumped twice you see
It's over now, be on your way
So long baby, be on your way
I had a ball, you thought I'd fall
You had one jump on me
But I jumped twice you see
It's over now, be on your way
So long baby, be on your way - ay...

True story. The radio was playing while the family were having a row, complete with foul language, death threats - the usual stuff. This record was playing. I had heard it before. Just before the instrumental break, I said: "Listen to this," and turned up the volume. Everybody started laughing, and that was the end of the row.

Death threats is not the usual thing ☠️🤔

A man who wrote his own songs.

Awesome. professional, passionate. . The B side of this (The Answer to Everything) is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard. Check it out. Miss you so much, Del.
