The "Goodbye Song" is performed by Bear and Luna at the end of each episode of Bear in the Big Blue House. As they perform, several scenes from the episode are shown. In rare instances, some of the other characters will join in the singing of the song as well. It was also featured in Bear in the Big Blue House Live!
In the episode "And to All a Good Night," the entire cast (up to that point in the series run) performed a special version of the song. This extended version was available on the Bear's Holiday Celebration album.
Bear: Hey this was really fun,
Luna: We hoped you liked it to.
Bear: Seems like we've just begun,
Both: When suddenly we're through.
Bear: Goodbye, goodbye, good friends goodbye,
Bear and Luna: Cause now it's time to go.
Bear: But hey, I say, well that's OK,
Luna: Cause we'll see you very soon I know,
Bear: Very soon I know.
*This verse only appeared in 'And to All a Good Night'
Pip and Pop: Oh when we have to go away,
Tutter: It's kind of sad but then,
Treelo: So sad but then,
Father Otter: It's nice to know,
Mother Otter: It won't be long,
Doc Hogg: Till we get to see each other again,
Grandma Flutter: Till we meet again.
All: Goodbye, goodbye, good friends goodbye,
And tomorrow just like today.
The moon, the bear, and the big blue house,
will be waiting for you to come and play,
to come and play,
to come and play.
Bear: Bye now!
