Verse:
We all fall for some girl who dress -es neat, Some girl that's got big feet, We meet her on the street;
Then we'll join the ar -my of mar -ried boobs, To the al -tar, Just like lea -ding lambs to slaugh -ter.
When it's o -ver, oh boy, we get it good. Bach -'lor days we then re -call.
Rich man, poor man, beg -ger ma, thief, Doc -tor, law -yer, mer -chant, chief: We are all bound for Ma -tri -mo -ny.
 
Chorus:
Good -bye My Con -ey Is -land Ba -by, Fare -well my own true love.
I'm gon -na go a -way and leave you. Nev -er to see you an -y -more.
I'm goin' to sail up -on a fer -ry boat, Nev -er to re -turn a -gain.
So good -bye, fare -well, so long for ev -er,
Good -bye My Con -ey Isle, Good -bye My Con -ey Isle,
Good -bye My Con -ey Is -land Babe.
