Vancouver Canucks Song: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye – Zack, Kevin, and Eddie

In the span of one week, the Vancouver Canucks traded away three popular players: defenceman Kevin Bieksa, goalie Eddie Lack, and forward Zack Kassian. In fact, we had this song written for just Bieksa and Lack when we found out that Kassian had been traded…while we were preparing to shoot this video. Thus, we were able to add him albeit at the last minute.

To pay tribute to these three players, we went with a Boyz II Men classic: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. This is actually the third Boyz II Men song we’ve covered for the Canucks.

I’m joined by regular collaborators Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, we welcome newlyweds Joseph and Marion San Jose, fresh off of their honeymoon to Rome where they gave a Canucks jersey to Pope Francis (with his name on it).

How do I say goodbye
To Bieksa and Lack
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad
I thought we’d get joke tweets forever
Now forever’s gone away
It’s so hard to say goodbye
Kevin and Eddie

I don’t know if your new teams
Are going to change you
All I know is where you’ve been
And what you’ve been through
Good years here with Vancouver
Now off to Anaheim and Raleigh
It’s so hard to say goodbye
Kevin and Eddie

And we’ll take with us the memories
And now we’ve found out Kassian’s been freed
It’s so hard to say goodbye
Zack, Kevin, and Eddie

And we’ll take with us the memories
Thanks for all you’ve done for our team
It’s so hard to say goodbye
Zack, Kevin, and Eddie
