Goodbye Marlon Brando
Elton John/Bernie Taupin
Say goodbye to loneliness
Say goodbye to Marlon Brando
Say goodbye to latitudes
And the confusion that surrounds you
Say goodbye to misery
Say goodbye to the morning news
Say goodbye to prime time
And the fools that choose to view
Say goodbye to Wendy
Say goodbye to Rhonda
Say goodbye to the Beach Boys
From the Palisades to Kona

Say goodbye to Glasnost
Say goodbye to Malathion
Say goodbye to the clowns in congress
And the belt around Orion
Say goodbye to the tabloids
Say goodbye to diet soda
Say goodbye to new age music
From the Capa to the Coda
Say goodbye to gridlock
Goodbye to Dolly's chest
Goodbye to the ozone layer
If there's any of it left

Don't it make you wanna crawl back to the womb
Find a sanitarium rent yourself a room
This overload is edging me further out to sea
I need to put some distance between overkill and me, me

Say goodbye to Jackie Collins
Say goodbye to illiterate fools
Goodbye to evangelists
And geeks with power tools
Goodbye to statuettes
Say goodbye to lists
Say goodbye to articles
On who the senator kissed
Say goodbye to hair styles
Goodbye to heaven's gate
Goodbye to Rocky Five
Six, seven and eight
