Goodbye grover, Part Deux: lyrics

Many years ago there was a Broadway play starring Lauren Bacall (bomb) and later a movie with Debbie Reynolds (pretty good) called "Goodbye Charlie".

The premise was that a guy who was a rat with the affections of women suddenly woke up as a woman.
(Insert 'Willing Suspension of Disbelief' here.)

Anyway, the title song was "Goodbye Charlie".
Here's the melody By Cannonball Adderly:


And here are the updated lyrics:
(WHY did I go to ALL this trouble? )

Goodbye... Grover
Hate to see you go
Goodbye, Grover
Gee ... I'm feelin' low
But, I'm cluein' you in
Someone's doin' you in, pal.

Goodbye... Grover
Hate to see you fade
My, my Grover
Thought you had it made
But, they're dumpin' you off
After bumpin' you off, pal.

Don't you know lechery
Leads you to treachery
Things boomerang
Someone you trifle with
Pulls out a rifle without a pang
Bang... bang... bang!
Goodbye... Grover

Cashin' in your chips
Wild-eyed Grover
Time you came to grips
There ain't... no doubt...
Strike three... you're out...
Goodbye... Grover
Goodbye!

Now don't you know lechery
Leads you to treachery
Things boomerang
Someone you trifle with
Pulls out a rifle without a pang
Bang... bang... bang!
Goodbye... Grover
Cashin' in your chips
Wild-eyed Grover
Time you came to grips

And, there ain't... no doubt...
Strike three... you're out...
Goodbye... Grover
Goodbye!
