The So Long Song (The Farewell Song in the UK version) is a song from Blue's Clues that is sung at the end of every episode from seasons 1-5 except 100th Episode Celebration, I'm So Happy!, The Alphabet Train, and Body Language. In season 6, it was succeeded by The Goodbye Song, that Joe sings during the final season of Blue's Clues. It came back in Blue's Clues & You! in a new tune and some new lyrics.

Lyrics[]

Blue's Clues[]

Standard version[]

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/our friend Blue
We can do (often followed by a bark from Blue) anything that we wanna do (twice with Joe, once with Steve)
(Spoken) (ways to say goodbye, including thanks)

In Season 1 and early 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?, Blue's Birthday, and Blue's Big Treasure Hunt CD Album), After Steve sings "And my dog Blue"/"And Grandma and 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"/"And Teacher Blue"/"My Grandma and Blue"/And Grandma and Blue" were changed to "And our friend Blue"/"Polka Dots and Blue". Also, starting in "Can You Help?", Joe sung the last line twice with the exceptions of Bedtime Business and Blue's Big Band.

É a hora do adeus (It's time for goodbye)
Vai mais uma canção (There's one more song)
Obrigado por serem companheiros estão bons (Thank you for being good companions)
