HI DE HI, HI DE HO

HI DE HI, HI DE HO
(Ronald Bell, J.T. Taylor and Kool & The Gang)

Hi de ho, baby, so long
(She don’t love me no more)
(She don’t love me no more)

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way my love goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
She wasn’t meant for me

One night while sitting all alone
I heard a ringing on the phone
So sweet and gentle as she could be
These are the words that she said to me

She said: “Baby” (Ooohooohooo), “I’m sorry
Darling” (Ooohooohooo), “I’m leaving
Sugar” (Ooohooohooo), “I can’t take it
Sweet heart” (Ooohooohooo), “It’s all over”
I say

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
Mmm, what a surprise
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
It just about blew my mind

Now that I’m sitting all alone
Can’t shake this feeling even though She’s gone
They say that memories fade in time
The words she said to me still linger in my mind

She said: “Baby” (Ooohooohooo), “I’m sorry
Darling” (Ooohooohooo), “I’m leaving
Sugar” (Ooohooohooo), “I can’t take it
Sweet heart” (Ooohooohooo), “It’s all over”
I say

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way my love goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
She wasn’t meant for me

‘Cause I’ve got my life to live, oh yeah
I got so much to give (So much to give)
Not gonna let this thing take me
I gotta keep movin’ and groovin’
So I can get back in the groove, yeaheah

(She don’t love me no more)
(Oooh, oooh, ooohooohooo)

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way my love goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
She wasn’t meant for me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
Mmm, what a surprise
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s alright, baby

(She don’t love me no more) She’s gone
Oooh, oooh, ooohooohooo
(Hi de hi, hi de ho) She’s out of my life

(She don’t love me no more) She’s gone
(Oooh, oooh, ooohooohooo)
(Hi de hi, hi de ho) So long baby

(She don’t love me more) Why you wanna do that to me?
(Hi de hi, hi de ho) You hurt me so bad

(She don’t love me no more) Why you wanna do that to me?

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
Just about blew my mind
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way the song goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
That’s what she said to me

(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
This is the way my love goes
(Hi de hi, hi de ho)
She wasn’t meant for me
