  • Lyrics: It’s time to say goodbye and thanks for showing It’s time to pack the bags and hit the road So don’t forget to write Time to raise the lights So here’s a final thought before you go Your mama loves you (yeah yeah) And Jesus loves you (yeah yeah) But save a little room inside your heart for me So now we’re leaving But don’t be grieving No band can love you half as much as Ping It’s time to change our clothes and take a shower The order’s wrong, but you know what I mean The time is done for getting down and dirty The time has come for getting squeaky clean Your mama loves you (yeah yeah) And Jesus loves you (yeah yeah) But save a little shampoo and some soap for me So now we’re leaving But don’t be grieving No band can love you half as much as Ping The time has come for final introductions To give you all our names in perfect pitch Hi, I’m Jeff, I pull it all together Or tear it all apart, I don’t know which Terrence drums and shakes the sweet percussion That’s Andrew on guitar and Clint on bass The time has come for Andy's guitar solo The time has come for Ping to rock your face So if you parked and sadly left your lights on Or if you locked your keys inside your car You can always come back here And help us load our gear And marvel at us glamorous rock stars C’mon, I’m joking! (yeah yeah) What are you smoking? (he’s really joking) We’ll grouse about our day jobs ‘til you fall asleep So now we’re leaving But don’t be grieving No band can love you half as much as Ping We’ve worn our welcome out, it’s time to leave!
