  • orjinal adı le moribund (ölmekte olan adam) olan bir jacques brel bestesi olmakla beraber (ayrıca bakabilirsiniz: ne me quitte pas), kanadalı terry jacks'in bir arkadaşının ölümü üzerine yazdığı ingilizce sözlerle patlamış, 70'lerin ortasında haftalarca, aylarca bir numarada kalmış, milyonlarca satmış, insanlarda duygu selleri yaratıp onlara hayatı sorgulatmış bir şarkıdır.
    bense ilkgençlik çağlarımda, artık kimden duyduysam, nerden böyle bir sanrıya kapıldıysam, bu şarkıyı yazan, besteleyen ve söyleyenin gerçekten ölmek üzere olduğuna inanmış, hatta o yüzden şarkıyı dinleyememişimdir. içim kaldırmamıştır yani.
    sözlerse şöyledir:

    goodbye to you, my trusted friend
    we've known each other since we're nine or ten
    together we climbed hills or 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
    when you see them 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 get 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, all have 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 bird are singing in the sky
    now that the spring is in the air
    with the flowers ev'rywhere
    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.
