I know there is a musical by that name,but I am looking for a song entitled "bye bye birdie" In the musical it lists a 'bye bye birdie" reprise. I don't know what that is. Is it the song I am after?

In an old thread, Joe Offer posted the lyrics which he got from THIS LINK.

Or, you can read his posting of the lyrics in THIS THREAD

There are a bunch of listings on youtube, one of which is ANN MARGARET singing the title song, which is completely different than what Joe posted, so not sure which one you want.

Hope that helps.:-)

BYE BYE BIRDIE
(from the film)

Kim:
Bye Bye Birdie
I'm gonna miss you so;
Bye bye Birdie,
Why'd you have to go?
No more sunshine
It's followed you away;
I'll cry Birdie,
Till you're home to stay.
I'll miss the way you smile,
As tho' it's just for me;
And each and ev'ry night,
I'll write you faithfully!
Bye bye Birdie,
It's awful hard to bear,
Bye bye birdie
Think I'll always care,
Guess I'll always care,
Guess I'll always Care!

Bye bye Birdie
The Army's taken you now
I'll try Birdie
To forget somehow
No more sighing
Each time you moved your lips
No more crying
When you twist those hips
You swivel and you sway
Your super trooper
There's nothing left to say
But Conrad you're a jet
Bye Bye Birdie.

Many songs in the musical, some more singable.

Thanks to all of you for your input. Are these the only lyrics? They just don't look right, but maybe it's just been too long since I saw them.

Hi, Jexie-
The theme is repeated several times during the movie, and there are variations. The final "Army" verse isn't on the Ann-Margret single. Her lyrics are just about what's posted above, without that final verse.
The Ann-Margret recording is introduced by this verse:
    We love you Conrad, oh yes, we do
    We love you Conrad, and we'll be true.

There was a similar verse about the Beatles. Bye Bye Birdie is a 1960 stage musical with a book by Michael Stewart, lyrics by Lee Adams, and music by Charles Strouse. The Beatles were formed in 1960, so I'm guessing the "Conrad" verse came first.

I was in a production of it in 1999.
Apart from "Kids", other well-known songs from the show include "Put on a Happy Face", and "Gotta lot of living to do". Lesser known are "Last Kiss" and "Spanish Rose".
And yes, "We love you Beatles" was a copy of "We love you Conrad": the reprise bit is the fact that the adoring fans keep coming back and singing "We love you Conrad" at various intervals in the show.
It probably was more a comment on Elvis Presley's life history, as Conrad similarly gets drafted into the Army.
