A Tahitian goodbye song composed by Heremoana Ma’ama’atuaiahutapu, that a dance or musical troupe may sing at the end of their performance to thank the audience.
Lyrics of All Around This World version:
The time has come for going
And you should now be knowing
That we had so much fun but the fun we had is done
Don’t worry we will sing and dance again
Then we’ll sing and dance some more ’til you walk back out the door
Though why should you and I even try to say goodbye?
You know you have to go… so you – can – come back soon and say hello
You know you have to go… so you can come back soon and say hello
Still the time has come for going….
