Never Can Say Goodbye    (1971)

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Even though the pain and heartache
Seems to follow me wherever I go
Though I try and try to hide my feelings
They always seem to show
Then you try to say you're leaving me
And I always have to say no...

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
That I
Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Every time I think I've had enough
I start heading for the door
There's a very strange vibration
Piercing me right to the core
It says "turn around you fool
You know you love her more and more"

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
Don't wanna let you go!

I can never can say goodbye, girl (never can say goodbye, girl)
Ooh, ooh baby (don't wanna let you go girl)
I never can say goodbye
No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no, ooh!
Oh! I never can say goodbye, girl (never can say goodbye, girl)
Ooh ooh, never can say goodbye
No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no, ooh!

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

I keep thinkin that our problems
Soon are all gonna work out
But there's that same unhappy feeling
And there's that anguish, there's that doubt
It's the same old "did ya hang up?"
Can't do with you or without

Tell me why (tell me why)
Is it so (is it so)
Don't wanna let you go

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye

Never can say goodbye
No, no, no-no, I
Never can say goodbye
