O It's Good Bye Liza Jane

(click the voicing to view and hear online)


Two-Part      Three Part


This energetic American folk song (and game) is full of seemingly nonsense lyrics offering a variety of opportunities for chorus members to have individual or group solos. 

When the three-part arrangement is sung by early adolescents, it is voiced (S, A/C, B).  When the two-part arrangement is sung, it is voiced (S, A/C).  Part II may be sung by second sopranos, altos, or cambiatas in either setting. 

Access the two-part or three-part variable voicing charts to view available voicing options.


This a fun novelty piece!


Words: American Game Lyrics

Music: American folk song

Arranged by:  Walter Ehret
