Lyrics to song Never can say Goodbye by Michael Jackson

Exhale.

(Whoo-whoo, whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo.)

Never can stay3 goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)
No, no, no, no, I,
Never can say goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)

Even though the pain and heartache,
Seem to follow me wherever I go.
Though I try and try to hide my feelings,
They always seem to show,
Then you try to say you're leaving me,
And I always have to say, "No."
Tell me why (tell me why),
Is it so (is it so)?

That I never can say goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)
No, no, no, no, I.
Never can say goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)

Everytime I think I've had enough,
To start heading for the door.
There's a very strange vibration,
That pierces me right through the core.
It says, "Turn around. you fool,
You know you love her more and more."
Tell me why (tell me why),
Is it so (is it so)?
Don't want to let you go!

I never can say goodbye, girl.
(Never can say goodbye, girl.)
Ooo-ooo, baby.
(Don't wanna let you go, girl.)
Never can say goodbye.
(No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no), ooooo.

Oh, I never can say goodbye.
(Never can say goodbye, girl.)
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo.
(Don't wanna let you go, girl.)
I never can say goodbye.
(No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no), ooooo.

Never can say goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)
No, no, no, no, I,
Never can say goodbye.
(Say goodbye, girl.)

I keep thinking that our problems,
Soon are all gonna work out.
But there's that same unhappy feeling,
That there's that anguish, there's that doubt.
It's the same old, "Did ya hang up?"
Can't do with you or without.
Tell me why (tell me why),
Is it so (is it so)?
Don't want to let you go!

I never can say goodbye, girl.
(Never can say goodbye, girl.)
Ooo-ooo, baby. (Hey, baby.)
I never can say goodbye.
(No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no), ooooo.

Hoh-a, I never can-a say-a goodbye, girl.
(Never can-a say goodbye, girl.)
Ooo, ha-oh. (Hey, baby.)
I never can-a say-a goodbye.
(No-no-no, no-no-no, no-no-no), ooooo.

Fades.
Awww, hey, I never can say goodbye, girl.
(Never can say goodbye, girl.)
Ooo-ooo, baby. (Hey, baby.)
I never can say goodbye.
No-no-no, no-no-no, (no-no-no), ooooo.

I never can say goodbye, girl...
