The Lyrics

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend
It won't be long 'fore we're in rehab again
Together we took drugs and drink
Took more than you'd ever think
Sick down loos and down the sink

Goodbye my friend, and if I die
When up on stage and being broadcast live
Now that we are on the air
Shown on teles everywhere
One bad joke and I'll be there

We made waves, we made fun, we made headlines in The Sun
All the times we got smashed
In the hotel rooms we trashed

Oh, Lily Savage pray for me
You always looked much better on TV
You tried to show where I went wrong
Too much wine and too much song
Wonder how I got along

Goodbye, Lily, if I die
When up on stage and being broadcast live
When the audience turns away
Nothing funny left to say
No-ones watching anyway

We made waves, we made fun, we made headlines in The Sun
But the wine and the coke
And the lawyers left us broke

Goodbye, Dame Edna, superstar
You were the first to wear a padded bra
And every time that I was down
You'd wait for me to come around
And then you'd buy another round

Goodbye, Dame Edna if I die
When up on stage and being broadcast live
Not that it happens anymore
You're so rich and I'm so poor
Son of a misbegotten whore

We made waves, we made fun, we made headlines in The Sun
And the photos they took
Of us all when we were crooked

We made waves, we made fun, we made headlines in The Sun
But the bars where we played
Now just send us all away

We made waves, we made fun, we made headlines in The Sun
But they've all had enough
Of this tragic drag act, Puff
