Goodbye Song for Kids - The Singing Walrus

Goodbye Song for Kids

Goodbye Song for Kids – A Fun Routine Song to End the School Day

I truly admire preschool and kindergarten teachers. They are able to manage a classroom full of “energetic” children with love, patience, and efficiency – while staying flexible to handle any surprises.

When I look back at our years as teachers, I remember how important it was to establish daily routines with the students – no matter how old the students were. Those routines were helpful to keep a certain structure and rhythm in our classrooms in the midst of all the different special programs.

We therefore decided to write a “Goodbye Song” for kids in addition to our “Good Morning Song” we wrote a short while ago. It is the perfect song to sing along while cleaning up and getting ready to go home! Again, we kept the lyrics fairly simple to make it easy for young kids (and young learners of English) to sing along.



Goodbye Song


It’s time to go home
It’s time to go home
It’s time to go home
It’s time to say goodbye

I had so much fun
And you had so much fun
We all had so much fun
And now we say goodbye


Goodbye, goodbye
See you again
Goodbye, goodbye
See you again


Goodbye Song Screenshots

Warm 70s-style colours and retro shapes – our favourite illustration style! Not only do we like this style because we personally like anything that’s retro, but also because the warm tones and simple shapes are soothing. Since bright colours immediately attract the eyes, we make sure we use them sparingly and efficiently. The main visual focus should be the characters and relevant objects, who serve to showcase the music.

Here are some screenshots. What do you think?

It’s time to go home!

I had so much fun, and you had so much fun!

Hop on the bus!

Hop on the bus!

      Hi Emily, We don't have sheet music available just yet (we've been getting a lot of requests, so we'll do it at some point). Here are the chords for the song (if that helps): C G B flat F Those chords are repeated in a 4 bar progression for the entire song. Please let us know if this works for you!
