She's headin' down the mountain Footloose and fancy-free On her way to Boston where the city meets the sea With nothing but an ocean, she'd like to see the world Sail around the ocean, gotta be goodbye girl
Goodbye girl, got everything she needs Goodbye girl Goodbye girl, she knows she's gonna be Goodbye girl
Her mama used to tell her "Don't rush to settle down" "If you got the urge for goin', let it take you town to town" "The world is your oysters, so you better find those pearls "And I will always love you, farewell and goodbye, girl"
Goodbye girl, go chasin' down a dream Goodbye girl Goodbye girl, you're always gonna be My goodbye girl
You say you'd like to know her and she thinks you're alright But you'll be a hundred miles from here this time tomorrow night So if you'd like to join her, she'll take you for the world But you gotta love leavin' when you're with goodbye girl
Goodbye girl, nothing's gettin' between With a goodbye girl Goodbye girl, she's always gonna be Goodbye girl
