Song Lyric Sunday – “Hello, Goodbye”

This week Jim Adams has prompted us with choosing songs involving Contrasts for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

Today I’m choosing “Hello, Goodbye by The Beatles. My best friend, Morgan and her hubby Dave are visiting this weekend. They have been socially distancing and wearing a mask when going to the grocery store like us. Morgan has rarely left her house since this began in March. They came to visit in May so we felt safe being around them. Thought this song summed up our relationship as we are always keeping each other in check.

So we will say hello to them for a short 3 days and then say goodbye!

Sorry this is the short version of my write up this week, but spending time with our friends this weekend takes precedence!  Thanks Maggie for the prompt suggestion! 

SONG FACTS

  • Written by Paul McCartney and credited by Lennon-McCartney.
  • Issued as a non-album single in November 1967 & was backed by Lennon’s “I Am The Walrus”.
  • Reached #1 on 11 charts around the world and #2 on 4 other charts.
  • There were three promotional clips for Hello, Goodbye. They were filmed at the Saville Theatre in London on November 10, 1967. The first one shows The Beatles in their Sgt. Pepper uniforms with brief clips of them wearing their 1963 matching collarless suits. This is the video I shared with you.
  • The first promo in the US premiered on The Ed Sullivan Show on November 26, 1967.
  • Because of the lip-syncing and the regulations against it, none of the promotionals were aired in Britain.

“Hello, Goodbye”

You say yes, I say no
You say stop and I say go go go, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

I say high, you say low
You say why and I say I don't know, oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
(Hello goodbye hello goodbye) Hello hello
(Hello goodbye) I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
(Hello goodbye hello goodbye) Hello hello
(Hello goodbye) I don't know why you say goodbye
(Hello goodbye) I say hello/goodbye

Why why why why why why do you say goodbye goodbye, oh no?

You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

You say yes (I say yes) I say no (But I may mean no)
You say stop (I can stay) and I say go go go (Till it's time to go), oh
Oh no
You say goodbye and I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
Hello hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

  1. This is one of those great Beatles songs that no matter how many times you hear it you like it, and for me anyway, keep singing it all day long! Great choice. 🙂

    • I’m with you on that! Many Beatles songs are like that for me because when I was a preteen going to the skating rink every weekend, they played a lot of Beatles songs. Always brings back those awesome memories! 🙂
