The So Long Song (The Farewell Song in the UK version) is a song from Blue's Clues and Blue's Clues & You that is sung at the end of every episode from seasons 1-5. In season 6, it was replaced by The Goodbye Song, that Joe sings during the final season of Blue's Clues.

Usual Lyrics

Now it's time for so long
But we'll sing just one more song
Thanks for doing your part
You sure are smart
You know, with me and you and my dog Blue
We can do anything that we wanna do!

In Season 1 and the first episodes of Season 2 (Steve Gets the Sniffles, What Does Blue Want to Build?, What Experiment Does Blue Want to Try?, What Was Blue's Dream About?, and Blue's Birthday), After Steve sings "And my dog Blue", the viewers also say the last line and repeat it twice (though only half of it was said the last time: "We can do anything!"). Steve only sings the line the first time.

When Joe made his first appearance, the lyrics "And my dog Blue" were changed to "And our friend Blue". Also, starting in "Can You Help?", Joe sung the last line twice with a few exceptions, such as in "Blue's Big Band".

What Does Blue Want to Make?

Steve: Now it's time for so long
Sock Puppet: So long? I just got here.
Steve: But we'll sing just one more song
Sock Puppet: La la la la la!
Steve: Thanks for doing you part
Sock Puppet: You sure are smart
Steve: You know, with me and you and my dog Blue
Steve and the viewers: We can do...
Sock Puppet and the viewers: ...anything...
Steve and the viewers: ...that we wanna do!

Note: Since this episode is a season 1 episode, the viewers keep repeating the last 3 lines until the Credits.

What Story Does Blue Want to Play?

Steve (in an Elvis Presley voice): And now it's time for so long.

But we'll sing just one more song.

Well thanks for doing your part.

Steve: You sure are smart!

You know, with me and you, and hound dog Blue.

We can do anything, that we wanna do!

  • Note: Since this is a season 1 episode, the viewers keep repeating "we can do anything that we wanna do" until the credits.
