say goodbye my own true lover
as we sing a lovers song 
how it breaks my heart to leave you 
now the carnival is gone 

high above the dawn is waiting 
and my tears are falling rain 
for the carnival is over 
we may never meet again 

like a drum my heart was beating 
and your kiss was sweet as wine 
but the joys of love are fleeting 
for Pierrot and Columbine 

now the harbour light is calling 
this will be our last goodbye 
though the carnival is over 
I will love you till I die
