Lyrics Edit

I loved you madly, you know it well,
Which makes my story too tough to tell,
So why not forget it all,
Just leave it unsaid,
And I'll merely sing it to you instead,

Farewell, Amanda,
Adios, addio, adieu,
Farewell, Amanda,
It was great fun but it is done, it's through,
Still now and then, fair Amanda,
When you are stepping on the stars above,
Please recall that wonderful night on the veranda,
Sweet Amanda, and our love.
