GOODBYE (magyarul: Viszlát) Spice Girls-nek első kislemez, a harmadik albumról, a Forever-ről. Ez volt az első olyan kislemez amin Geri nem szerepel. A dalt még a Spiceworld albumra készült de a lányoknak nem tetszett a szövege. A visszatérőn túrnén Geri Halliwell énekelnek de csak a kórus részben énekel: Goodbye my friend/It's not the end Melanie C-vel és Victoria-val. A dal a harmadik és az utolsó karácsonyi első helyezett volt. Felvettek rá egy másik dalt a Christmas Wrapping-ot amiben Emma és Melanie C énekel mert Melanie B és Victoria terhesek voltak. Eredetileg a 'We Are Family' a harmadik albumra tervezték de Geri kilépet így stúdióban soha nem énekelték fel.

VIVA FOREVER

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Now listen little child, there will come a day/Figyelj rám kicsim, eljön majd a nap
When you will be able, able to say/Amikor képes leszel, képes leszel kimondani
Never mind the pain, or the aggravation/Sose bánd a fájdalmat és a bosszúságot
You know there's a better way for you and me to be
/Hiszen tudod, hogy ennél sokkal jobb viszonyban vagyunk

Look for the rainbow in every storm/Ha vihar van, keresd a szivárványt
Fly like an angel, heaven sent to me
/Úgy repülsz, mint egy angyal, az égiek küldtek hozzám

Goodbye my friend/Viszlát, barátom
I know you're gone, you said you're gone but I can still feel you here
/Tudom, hogy elmész, azt mondtad, elmész, de még mindig érzem a jelenléted
It's not the end/Ez még nem a vég
Gotta keep it strong, before the pain turns into fear

/Erősnek kell lenned, nehogy a fájdalom félelembe csapjon át

So glad we made it time will never change it, no, no, no (no, no, no, no)
/Úgy örülök, hogy nekünk sikerült, ezen az idő sem változtathat már soha

Just a little girl, big imagination/Még csak egy kislány, hatalmas képzelőerővel
Never letting no one take it away /Soha senkinek ne hagyd, hogy ezt elvegye tőled
Went into the world what a revelation/Kinyílt előtte a világ, micsoda felfedezés!
She found there's a better way, for you and me to be
/Ráébredt, hogy ennél sokkal jobb viszonyban vagyunk

Look for the rainbow in every storm/Ha vihar van, keresd a szivárványt
Find out for certain loves gonna be there for you /Menj biztosra, a szeretet ott vár rád
You'll always be someone's baby/Mindig lesz valaki, akinek fontos vagy

Goodbye my friend
I know you're gone, you said you're gone but I can still feel you here
It's not the end
Gotta keep it strong, before the pain turns into fear

So glad we made it time will never change it, no, no, no (no, no, no, no)
/Úgy örülök, hogy nekünk sikerült, ezen az idő sem változtathat már soha
You know its time to say goodbye (no, no, no, no)/Eljött a búcsú ideje

The times when we would play about/Régen, amikor még viccelődtél
The way we used to scream and shout/A sikoltozásainkon és kiabálásainkon
We never dreamt you'd go your own sweet way
/Sosem gondoltam volna, hogy egyszer majd a saját utadat fogod járni

Look for the rainbow in every storm 
Find out for certain, love's gonna be there for you 
You'll always be someone's baby

Goodbye my friend
I know you're gone, you said you're gone but I can still feel you here
It's not the end
Gotta keep it strong, before the pain turns into fear

So glad we made it time will never, never, ever change it (no, no, no, no)
/Úgy örülök, hogy nekünk sikerült ezen az idő sem változtathat már soha
You know it's time to say goodbye (no, no, no, no)/Eljött a búcsú ideje
And don't forget you can rely (no, no, no, no)/Ne felejtsd el, hogy rám számíthatsz
You know it's time to say goodbye/Eljött a búcsú ideje
And don't forget on me you can rely (no, no, no, no)/Ne felejtsd el, hogy rám számíthatsz
I will help, help you on your way/Segíteni foglak, segíteni foglak az utadon
I will be with you everyday (no, no, no, no)/Minden nap veled leszek
I will be with you everyday (no, no, no, no) I will be with you everyday

CHRISTMAS WRAPPING

"Bah! Humbug" - no, that's too strong cos it's my favorite holiday
But all this year's been a busy blur don't think I have the energy
To add to my already mad rush just because it is the season
The perfect gift for me would be completions and connections left from
Last year, world tour aeroplanes and babies
Met some guys but never the time most of '98 passed along those lines
So deck the halls and trim those trees raise up the cups of Christmas cheer
I just need to catch my breath Christmas with my mates this year

Calendar picture, frozen landscape chilled this room for twenty-four days
Evergreens, sparkling snow get this winter over with
Flashback to springtime, saw him again would've been good to go for lunch
Couldn't agree we were both free we tried, we said we'd keep in touch
We didn't, of course, 'till the summertime out to the beach to his boat, could I join him?
No, this time it was me sunburn in the third degree
Now the calendar's just one page and, of course, I am excited
Tonight's the night, but I've set my mind not to do too much about it

Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year

Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year

Hardly dashing through the snow cos I bundled up too tight
Last minute have-to-do's a few cards, a few calls
Because it's R-S-V-P no thanks, no party lights
It's Christmas Eve, gonna relax turned down all of my invites
Last fall I had a night to myself same guy called, halloween party
Waited all night for him to show this time his car wouldn't go
Forget it, it's cold, it's getting late trudge on home to celebrate
In a quiet way, unwind doing Christmas right this time

Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year

Tesco has provided me with the world's smallest turkey
Already in the oven, nice and hot oh damn, guess what I forgot
So it's on with the boots, back out in the snow to the only all-night garage
But when to my wondering eyes should appear
In the line that guy I've been chasing all year
"Spending this one alone," he said "need a break; this year's been crazy."
I said, "Me too, but why are you you mean you forgot the papers too?"
Then suddenly we laughed and laughed caught on to what was happening
Christmas magic's brought this tale to a very happy e-ending

Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year
Merry Christmas merry Christmas but I think I'll miss this one this year

SISTER'S ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES

Now there was a time when they used to say 
That behind every
great man there had to be a great woman
But in these times of change you know that it's no longer true
So we're comin' out of the kitchen cos there's somethin' we forgot to say to you

We say sisters are doin' it for themselves
Standin' on their own two feet and ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation of the female state
Mothers, daughters and their daughters too
Woman to woman we're singin' with you
The "inferior sex" has got a new exterior
We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too everybody take a look around
Can you see, can you see, can you see there's a woman right next to you

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Standin' on their own two feet and ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Oh we ain't makin' stories - no, we ain't makin' plans
Don't ya know that a man still loves a woman - and a woman still loves a man
Now there was a time (there was a time) 
When we used to say (when we used to say) 
That behind every great man there has to be a great woman
Well in these times of change you know that it is no longer true
So we're comin' out of the kitchen cos there's somethin' we forgot to say to you

And that's sisters are doin' it for themselves
Standin' on their own two feet and ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Sisters are doin' it for themselves (Doin it, doin it, do-doin' it, doin' it)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves (All of my sisters, all of my sisters)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

WE ARE FAMILY

We are family I've got all my sisters with me (come on, everybody)
We are family get up everybody and sing
We are family I've got all my sisters with me
We are family get up everybody and sing

Everyone can see we're together as we walk on by
And we fly just like birds of a feather I won't tell no lie
All of the people around us they say can they be that close
Just let me state for the record we're giving love in a family dose

We are family I've got all my sisters with me (hey, yeah)

Livin' life is fun and we've just begun to get our share of this world's delights
(High) High hopes we have for the future and our goal's in sight
No we don't get depressed here's what we call our golden rule
(Have faith in you and the things you do (Harmony))
You won't go wrong (oh no!) this is our family jewel

We are family I've got all my sisters with me (hey, yeah)
