It looks like this thread is finally dead. :(

But maybe everyone is merely away on holidays (or vacations, here) and will be back eventually. [-o<

With that more hopeful idea in mind, I will post lyrics and hope that this is not the final post in this thread.

"Here we are (bye, baby, goodbye)
Saying goodbye at the station (bye, baby, goodbye)
Summer vacation (bye, baby bye, baby)
Is taking you away"

Peter, nor exactly dead, but on life support perhaps ...

I do look at this thread occasionally, although most of the time, the lyrics escape me.

For a few seconds, I thought that your choice was Bye Bye Baby, Baby Goodbye ( Frankie Valance? ) But then ... Dang, diddly! It isn't is it. #-o :fsbgrin:

Unfortunately, you are correct Jill. It is not Bye Bye, etc. by Frankie Valli.

But, it is reassuring to me that after 400+ views, someone responded! Thank you; I will await more posts. :D

Knew I didn't know the lyrics so I googled it. Good luck anyone this side of the pond knowing it - I've never heard of the band, let alone the song (which I might have heard a couple of times ever because I vaguely recalled it when I played it). I think we should at least narrow down the decade to when this was a hit in the USA - which was the 60's.

Hi Plummy, I hope you are getting better every day. [-o< And resisting your metal mistress. [-X

I really did not have any hope that anyone (on either side of the pond) would know the song or even respond, give the almost total lack of participation in the thread recently. Rather than just posting "RIP", I decided the lyrics of this song were appropriate to the hope that things might pick up after the summer.

"I'll be alone each and every night
While you're away, don't forget to write
Bye-bye, so long, farewell
Bye-bye, so long
See you in September
See you when the summer's through"

"Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love?"
