   Hello Goodbye
by John T. Marck



Hello Goodbye

Paul's friend, Alistair Taylor who was visiting McCartney, asked Paul one day how he wrote his many songs, and how he came up with his ideas. Paul took him into his dining room to give him a demonstration of his hand-carved harmonium. As an experiment, Paul asked Taylor to shout out the opposite of whatever he sang, such as black and white, yes and no, hello and goodbye, etc. From this, the song was born. Lennon hated the song, and viewed it as an inconsequential song of McCartney's, saying it was "three minutes of contradictions and meaningless juxtapositions." What further infuriated Lennon was that his "I Am The Walrus," was issued as the B-side to McCartney's A-side Hello Goodbye.

You say yes,

I say no,

you say stop

and I say go, go, go, oh, no

You say goodbye and I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

I say high,

you say low,

you say why,

and I say I don't know, oh, no

You say goodbye and I say hello,

hello, hello

(hello goodbye, hello goodbye, hello goodbye)

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello,

(hello goodbye hello goodbye, hello goodbye)

Hello, hello,

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello

(Why, why, why, why, why, why,

do you say good bye, goodbye, goodbye,)

Oh, no,

you say goodbye and I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello,

hello, hello

You say yes

(I say yes, but I may mean no)

I say no,

You say stop

(I can stop until it's time to go)

And I say go, go, go,

Oh, no

You say goodbye and I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye I say hello,

hello, hello

I don't know why you say goodbye I say hello,

oh, oh, oh, oh, Hello

Hela, heba helloa,

Hela, heba helloa

Hela, heba helloa,

Hela, heba helloa

Hela, heba helloa,

Hela, heba helloa

Hela, heba helloa,

Hela, heba helloa
