So Long, Airtel

Sung to the tune of "So Long, Farewell" from The Sound of Music.

Shaun Lyon, Rebecca Barber, Wendy Wiseman, Suze Campagna, Mary Alice, Tadao, Paul Steib and Robbie are lined up in single file in front of the Airtel, in the parking lot. Only Shaun, in front, is visible.

Everyone: There's a sad sort of clanging from the cloister bell,
if you listen, you can hear it chime.
The ticker tape is printing from the console of the TARDIS,
it's popping out to say "It's time."
Rebecca, Wendy, Suze and Mary Alice: It's time.
It's time.
Shaun, Tadao, Paul and Robbie: Regretfully they tell us
Rebecca, Wendy, Suze and Mary Alice: It's time.
Shaun, Tadao, Paul and Robbie: but firmly they compel us
Rebecca, Wendy, Suze and Mary Alice: It's time.
Shaun, Tadao, Paul and Robbie: to say good-byyyyyyye
Rebecca, Wendy, Suze and Mary Alice: It's time.
Everyone: to yoooooooooooooou!

Everyone lines up in a row from left to right.

Everyone: So long, Airtel, you were good but not terrific.
Shaun: And there are more hotels by the Pacific.

Everyone kicks Shaun to the end of the line and he leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, and the restaurant we call Landings.
Rebecca: Your food's okay but not all that outstanding.

Everyone remaining kicks Rebecca to the end of the line and she leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, from your layout we depart.

Everyone remaining kicks Wendy to the end of the line and she leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, your drivers were okay.
Suze: Sometimes we were made to wait at Flyaway.

Everyone remaining kicks Suze to the end of the line and she leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, we won't miss your carpet stains
Mary Alice: that you won't clean, which is really quite insane.

Everyone remaining kicks Mary Alice to the end of the line and she leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, we propped up the bar an awful lot.
Tadao: But that's no loss, there's another at Marriott.

Everyone remaining kicks Tadao to the end of the line and he leaves, and they take a step to their right.

Everyone remaining: So long, Airtel, it is Beeps that we will miss.
Paul: The rest you can toss into the abyss.

Robbie kicks Paul to the end of the line and he leaves. Robbie takes a step to her right. As she sings, everyone comes back to join her.

Robbie (very slowly): So long, Airtel, your service could improve.
Everyone: That's why we chose to pull up stakes and move.
Good-byyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyye.
Good-byyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyye.

The Airtel staff comes out and waves:

Airtel staff: Good-byyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyye.
