Yesterday, during my last hour on the clock for Sydney Uni, I put my time to good use and wrote a bit of a farewell tune for my team. It was a surreal day saying goodbye to a bunch of people I’ve spent the better part of two years with. There were days of utter frustration but on the whole they were days of laughter. What a team we all were!

 


 

All,

The time has come to say:

Bye Bye Bye

Step 2: Sing this with all the passion in the world

 

(Hey, Hey)
Bye, Bye, Bye
Bye, Bye…
Bye, Bye…
Oh, Oh..

I’m doin’ this today,
You’re probably gonna be alright.
I know this was a fright
Hey baby come on,
I loved you (all) endlessly,
When we were all a team.
But now it’s time to leave and move on all alone
I know that it’s time to go explore.
It ain’t no lie
I might have quite a heartsore
Baby, bye, bye, bye…

Bye Bye
Do wanna say all the best too
(I’m) just another player in the marketing crew
You may miss me but please don’t cry,
Baby, bye, bye, bye…

Bye Bye
Don’t really wanna make up stuff,
I just wanna tell you that you’re all tough.
It might sound, ah, normal,
But now I hope I don’t cry,
Baby, bye, bye, bye

(Oh, Oh)
(I’ll) Just hit y’all with the truth,
Now, you’re all creative, smart and true.
So keep up the big vision,
Baby come on.
We live for that purple tree,
And now I really come to see,
The impact we make through the changes we’ve undergone.

I know that it’ll take much more
It ain’t no lie,
We wanna see this see place soar
Baby, bye, bye, bye…
Bye Bye
Do wanna say all the best for you
(I’m) just another player in the marketing crew

You may miss me but please don’t cry,
Baby Bye, bye, bye…
Bye Bye
I just wanna tell you that you’re all tough.
It might sound, ah, normal,
But now I hope I don’t cry,
Baby, bye, bye, bye
I’m moving on I know for sure
I do wanna stay in touch and be an ambassador.

Bye Bye
I’m checkin’ out
I’m signin’ off
Do wanna leave with this as my last mischief.

Do wanna say all the best for you
and say a big ‘adiew!’
So join me all for a good wine!
Bye, bye, bye…


It’s been a blast, you’re all fantastic and it’s been an absolute pleasure working with you all. I know I’ll take all the things I’ve learnt from our time together wherever my career may go! Thank you.

Shout out to the original crew below, plus Kate, Megs, Chad and Miranda who joined us along the ride!

 

The original crew minus @stresslessjessie (+ @katiesz12) What a blast the past 2 years have been! Thank you!!
