This 30-second clip includes the instrumental introduction and first verse of 'Bye Bye Baby’, as performed by Col Joye and the Joy Boys with backing vocals from the Sapphires.
There is not a lot to this pop song, written by American Frank McNulty, other than a catchy title hook. The lyrics are about the singer saying goodbye to his girlfriend and how lonely he will be without her until the next time they meet.
The original recording was made using a nylon string guitar, bass (wonderfully out of tune in the beginning) and minimalist drums with Col Joye almost whispering the vocals (as he had a cold at the time). This is the released version, with added celeste and ‘ooh-ahh’ backing vocals from the Sapphires, presumably to give it a little more musical interest.
