FROM THE ARCHIVE 312 -1973-

Going Going Gone is a great song from the fabulous Never Never Never album and written by John Barry. Below you can listen to the studio version of this song and also a live version that was recorded for the 1976 BBC shows but was edited out in the end unfortunately.

Lyrics:

Going, going gone
Love is going, going gone
There’s a limited supply
Better bid, better buy
While the sale is going on.

Going, going gone
Love is going, going gone
Price’s every day increase
Better grab every piece
You can lay your hands upon.

Going, going fast
Life is going, going fast
Theres no time to wheel and deal
Touch and taste, see and feel
What you miss could be your last.

Going going gone
Love is going going gone
Going once, going once
love is going going twice
Going twice going twice
This is it for paradise
Going once going twice
Love is going going gone.

Going going gone
Love is going going gone
Going once, going once
love is going going twice
Going twice going twice
This is it for paradise
Going once going twice
Love is going going gone.

    1. Great comment Dennis. Glad to see you on the blog my friend. Everything you said is true Dennis. Dame Shirley is such a dynamo of a performer. What a profound and true song written by Mr. Alan Lerner, with the great music of the genius John Barry. Thank you Pieter for sharing this great archive.
