“Good-bye Blacktop” Lyrics

Day1Dozer

Goodbye isn’t always such a bad thing
Losing something never felt this good
I don’t mean to be mean, but I’m happy to see you leave,
So I’m saying peace, you belong in the street.

Goodbye black top, hello green,
No more pavement to skin my knees
I’ll have things to climb and swing
No more snow hills and bull dozing
So I’m saying peace, you belong in the street.

Hello playground, good-bye pavement
We play in a car lot that is vacant
If I fall and land head first
Now I won’t have to go to the nurse.
So I’m saying peace, you belong in the street.

Now it’s cool and safe to play at school
And we owe everything to the Irving Schoolyard team.

Goodbye isn’t always such a bad thing.
Losing something never felt this good.
I don’t mean to be mean, but I’m happy to see you leave,
So I’m saying peace, you belong in the street.

-lyrics by Mr. Williams, music by Ms. Hiolski, assistance from Irving students.
