The Communards – Never Can Say Goodbye

In 1987, British pop band The Communards had a hit with a pop-dance cover of the Clifton Davis classic, which was featured on their second album, Red. Their version reached number four in the UK Singles Chart and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot Dance/Disco chart in the U.S. The group had reached number one on those charts covering another 1970s classic, „Don’t Leave Me This Way“, in 1986. The Communards version was also featured in the episode „Father’s Day“, which was set in 1987, in the first series of the revived Doctor Who. It also could be heard in the final episode of Whites, featuring a dance number by Stephen Wight and recently as the signature tune to the British comedy series Vicious.

Never Can Say Goodbye – Songtext

(Woo hoo, woo hoo, hoo) Never can stay goodbye, no no no no I, Never can say goodbye, Even though the pain and heartache seem to follow me wherever I go, Though I try and tried 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, is it so?

That I never can say goodbye, no no no no I, Never can say goodbye, Every time I think I’ve had enough, I start heading for the door, There’s a very strange vibration-a piercing me right through the core, It says „turn around you fool, you know you love her more and more“, Tell me why, is it so? Don’t want to let you go

I never can say goodbye boy, ooh ooh baby, I never can say goodbye, no no no, no no no, ooh, oh, I never can say-a goodbye boy, ooh ooh, ooh, I never can say goodbye, no no no, no no no, ooh

Never can say goodbye, no no no no no no no I, Never can say goodbye, I keep thinkin‘ that our problems soon are all gonna work out, But there’s that same unhappy feelin‘, a-there’s that anguish, there’s that doubt, It’s the same ol‘ dizzy hang up, can’t do with you or without, Tell me why, is it so? Don’t want to let you go

I never can say goodbye boy, ooh ooh baby, I never can say goodbye, no no no, no no no, ooh, oh, I never can-a say-a goodbye boy, ooh, oh, I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no no no no, ooh, oh girl, I never can say goodbye boy, ooh baby, I never can say goodbye, no no no no no no no, I never can say goodbye boy.
