About How Do You Say Auf Wiedersehen
This is a touching love song about a couple breaking up. Both the music and the lyrics are very nice.

Lyrics

How do you say auf wiedersehn
To things you’ll never see again?
The Wilhelmstrasse in the rain
The day we ran to catch the train
That puffed along the river Seine
Remember Paris
And best of all the Pyrennes
Who could forget such memories
That crazy trip how typical of us
To miss the bus the plane too
How do you say auf wiedersehn to these?

The wild times, the small things
That popular waltz of the day
It ended as all things
But when does the music go away?
Say au revoir but not good bye
I’ve said it till I want to cry
Perhaps the French could tell us what to do
I wish I knew ah liebschen
How do I say auf wiedersehn to you?
