Birthday Shuffle Year V - Day 29 - 50 Ways to Say Goodbye

I love quirky songs, and when I first heard this one I was hooked...  especially when I heard the mariachi music for the opening...
 
 
And then I really heard the lyrics... I mean, what else could be funner, and more truer, than this..?
 
"My heart is paralyzed
My head was over sized
I'll take the high road like I should

 You said it's meant to be
That it's not you, it's me
You're leaving now for my own good
 
That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say
She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntan
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!

She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died
 
My pride still feels the sting
You were my everything
Some day I'll find a love like yours (a love like yours)

She'll think I'm Superman
Not super minivan
How could you leave on Yom Kippur?
 
That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say
She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!

She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say you died
 
I wanna live a thousand lives with you
I wanna be the one you're dying to
Love, but you don't want to
 
That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say
That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say
 
She went down in an airplane
Fried getting suntan
Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!
She met a shark under water
Fell and no one caught her
I returned everything I ever bought her
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion
Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes!

She dried up in the desert
Drowned in a hot tub
Danced to death at an east-side night club
Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies
And ways to say goodbye"
