"Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" is a song written and recorded by Paul Leka, Gary DeCarlo and Dale Frashuer, attributed to a then fictitious band they named "Steam". It was released under the Mercury subsidiary label Fontana and became a number one pop single on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1969.

Paul Leka, Gary DeCarlo and Dale Frashuer wrote a primitive version of the song in the early 1960s when they were members of a band from Bridgeport, Connecticut, called The Chateaus. The Chateaus disbanded after several failed recordings. In 1969, DeCarlo recorded several singles at Mercury Records in New York with Paul Leka as producer. The singles impressed the company's executives, who wanted to issue all of them as A-side singles. In need of "inferior" B-side songs, Leka and DeCarlo resurrected an old song from their days as the Chateaus, "Kiss Him Goodbye" with their old bandmate, Dale Frashuer.

=====================================
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye

He'll never love you, the way that I love you
'Cause if he did, no no, he wouldn't make you cry
He might be thrillin' baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
So dog-gone willin'
So kiss him (I wanna see you kiss him. Wanna see you kiss him)
Go on and kiss him goodbye, now

Na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye

Listen to me now

He's never near you to comfort and cheer you
When all those sad tears are fallin' baby from your eyes
He might be thrillin' baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
So dog-gone willin'
So kiss him (I wanna see you kiss him. I wanna see you kiss him)
Go on and kiss him goodbye, na-na na-na-na na na

Na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye

[fade in]
Hey hey-ey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey-ey, goodbye
[repeat many times and fade out]

Steam waren ursprünglich das Trio Gary DeCarlo, Paul Leka und Dale Frashuer aus Bridgeport, Connecticut. Sie spielten 1969 eine Single ein mit dem Titel Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye als A-Seite und It's The Magic In You Girl auf der B-Seite. Noch vor Veröffentlichung der Single trennten sich die drei. Als die Single dann doch veröffentlicht wurde und plötzlich zum Hit wurde, engagierte Paul Leka kurzerhand sechs Studiomusiker, die das Lied bei Auftritten spielten. Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye wurde ein internationaler Hit, Nummer 1 in den USA und ein Millionenseller. Das Lied wird heute noch gerne von US-amerikanischen Baseball-Clubs als Stadionhymne verwendet und ist besonders mit den Chicago White Sox verbunden. Nach einem weiteren, mittelmäßigen Erfolg mit I've Gotta Make You Love Me löste sich das Sextett schon wieder auf.
