Songtekst

It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on

Like a King without a castle
Like a Queen without a throne
I'm an early morning lover
And I must be moving on

Now I believe in what you say
Is the undisputed truth
But I have to have things my own way
To keep me in my youth

Like a ship without an achor
Like a slave without a chain
Just the thought of those sweet ladies
Sends a shiver through my veins
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

(Goodbye stranger, it's been nice)
(Hope you find your paradise)
(Tried to see your point of view)
(Hope your dreams will all come true)
(Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane)
(Will we ever meet again)
(Feel no sorrow, feel no shame)
(Come tomorrow, feel no pain)

Sweet devotion (Goodbye Mary)
It's not for me (Goodbye Jane)
Just give me motion (Will we ever)
And set me free (Meet again)
To the land and the ocean (Feel no sorrow)
Far away (Feel no shame)
It's the life I've chosen (Come tomorrow)
Everyday (Feel no pain)
So goodbye Mary (Goodbye Mary)
Goodbye Jane (Goodbye Jane)
Will we ever (Will we ever)
Meet again (Meet again)

Now some they do and some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some they will and some they won't
With some it's just as well

You can laugh at my behavior
That'll never bother me
Say the devil is my savior
But I don't pay no heed
And I will go on shining
Shining like brand new
I'll never look behind me
My troubles will be few

(Goodbye stranger, it's been nice)
(Hope you find your paradise)
(Tried to see your point of view)
(Hope your dreams will all come true)
(Goodbye Mary, goodbye Jane)
(Will we ever meet again)
(Feel no sorrow, feel no shame)
(Come tomorrow, feel no pain)

Sweet devotion (Goodbye Mary)
It's not for me (Goodbye Jane)
Just give me motion (Will we ever)
And set me free (Meet again)
To the land and the ocean (Feel no sorrow)
Far away (Feel no shame)
It's the life I've chosen (Come tomorrow)
Everyday (Feel no pain)
Now I'm leavin' (Goodbye Mary)
I got to go (Goodbye Jane)
Hit the road (Will we ever)
I'll say it once again (Meet again)

Oh yes, I'm leavin' (Feel no sorrow)
Got to go (Feel no shame)
Got to go (Come tomorrow)
I'm sorry, I must tell you (Feel no pain)
Goodbye Mary (Goodbye Mary)
Goodbye Jane (Goodbye Jane)
Will we ever (Will we ever)
Meet again (Meet again)

Oh, I'm leaving
