Tony from NBCorrespondent IApril 24, 2010

So Long Farewell  ~ written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, edited by Al Davis

There's a sad sort of clanking
From the clock in the hall (your performance and attitude JaMarcus)
And the bells in the steeple too.
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird (Al Davis)
Is popping up to say cukoo!
Cukoo! Cukoo!
Regretfully they tell us (Raider Nation)

But firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you. (JaMarcus Russell)

So long
Farewell
Aufwiedersehn
Goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight (but not without your stolen $$$)

So long
Farewell
Aufwiedersehn
Adeiu
Adeiu Adeiu
To yieu and yieu and yieu

So long
Farewell
Au 'voire
Aufwiedersehn
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne (or another all-you-can-eat)

So long
Farewell
Aufwiedersehn
Goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye (heave indeed)

Goodbye!

I'm glad to go I cannot tell a lie (so are we!!!)
I flit I float
I fleetly flee I fly (in your dreams JaMarcus)

The sun has gone to bed and so must I (so has your NFL career)
So long Farewell
Aufwiedersehn
Goodbye--

Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye...
Goodbye JaMarcus.....finally!!!!!!!!

AND BIG HELLO TO JASON CAMPBELL.... that's for another song.
