"Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" is a song with lyrics and music by Cole Porter. It was introduced in 1944 in Billy Rose's musical revue, Seven Lively Arts. The bit where it goes 'from major to minor', the harmony actually goes from minor to dominant. The song has since become a jazz standard after gaining popularity in the late 50's and early 60's.

Note: Many artists have replaced the apostrophe in "ev'ry" with an "e" and have combined "time" to form the more common "everytime."

Recorded February 7, 1956, Capitol Studios, Hollywood (Verve Records) (Cat. Num.: EP V-5007)

Everytime we say goodbye, I die a little,
Everytime we say goodbye, I wonder why a little,
Why the Gods above me, who must be in the know.
Think so little of me, they allow you to go.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer,
But how strange the change from major to minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.

When you're near, there's such an air of spring about it,
I can hear a lark somewhere, begin to sing about it,
There's no love song finer,
But how strange the change from major to minor,
Everytime we say goodbye.
