Question new goodbye song

I'm looking for a new "goodbye song" for the end of the day. I've sang the same one for 2 years and, well, how many days can you sing the same song without it getting old? I teach three and four year olds, several with special needs (including speech/language disorders), so repetition or a familiar tune would be helpful, but not a necessity.
Thank You!

I wrote this one when I needed a new one 2 years ago, you sing it to "Frere Jacques":

Goodbye children,
Goodbye teachers,
It's time to go,
Our day is done.
Wave goodbye to everybody
We'll see you all tomorrow,
When we learn and play
With our friends.

Hope you like it

Good Bye Song

This is a song from a Dr. Jean CD. My class loves it.
(Tune: She'll be comming round the mountian)

Spoken: Clap your hands Stomp your feet

It is time to say good-bye to all my friends
It is time to say good-bye to all my friends
It is time to say good-bye give wave and wink your eye
It is time to say good-bye to all my friends

Spoken: Good-bye friends
Yea haw

I have sang a few different tunes with my first graders and even though some children do not like Barney, they do like the song I've adapted from that show:

I like you,
You like me.
We're a happy school family!
With a great big hug (everyone hugs self)
And a kiss from me to you (I blow a kiss to them and them to me)
Won't you say you're happy too?

Then we say "See you tomorrow!"

Goodbye Song

I like to use this song, sung to If You're Happy and You Know It, but slowed to a quieter pace:
Good-bye, my friends, good-bye,
Good-bye, my friends, good-bye,
Good-bye, my friends, good-bye my friends, good-bye my
friends, good-bye.
Now in French,
Au Revoir, mes amis, au revoir etc.
And Spanish,
Adios, amigos, adios etc.
Sayonara, tomadachi, sayonara etc.
Joy Keen, pung yow, joy keen etc.
We always do this at the end of the year, adding languages which are spoken in the classroom. Oh, and we do sign language as we sing the words-good-by is waving, my friends is linking index fingers, then waving again. Hope this is helpful--Ruby.

I found this when going through my Mailbox magazine.

Settle your little ones and help them prepare for afternoon good byes with this simple poem. Each day substitute the next day of the week in the last line of the poem. Then encourage youngsters to hug one another before heading out the door!

It's good-bye time, don't you know?
The time of day for us to go.
We worked; we played; we had our fun.
Now let's hug good-bye
'Til (Tuesday) comes!

I teach a self contained kindergarten class and they love this one! It is very repetitive and they love the chance to be called on to name the next day of the week.

Goodbye everyone..
Goodbye everyone..
Goodbye everyone..
We'll see you on... (next day).

It is simple and short!

goodbye, song
