"No Comeback" was Electra's swan song, his final number.  The song was cut after the Original London Production, as Electra took part in "One Rock'n'Roll Too Many" instead.

Context

Humiliated and infuriated by losing the race, Electra loses his temper, and swears he is leaving, never to return. To make sure there is no misunderstanding, he even says goodbye to the Nationals in their own languages.

This fast-paced and furious number was cut from the London production very early on, around the time the Broadway show opened in 1987-1988. However the melody remains embedded in the show to represent Electra, particularly in "Laughing Stock" where Electra, Components, and Pearl dismiss Rusty and Poppa's attempts to race.

Lyrics

Electra Components L84 50
Clear my track you had your chance now
I'll find another line, no comeback!
Losing's not my style so I can't show my face now
Find another place now, didn't win so I'll go
Don't try to persuade me, losing always wrecks it
This is my last exit - stand by to fade me!
No comeback this is the last time
We never meet again, no comeback
No comeback this is the last time
We never meet again, no comeback
No come, no come, no come, no come,
No comeback! No comeback!
No come, no come, no come, no come,
No comeback! No comeback!
Adieu, mon ami
Addio, mia carra
Auf Wiedersehen, meine liebe
Sayonara...
EAT MY DUST!
No comeback this is the last time
We never meet again, no comeback
No comeback this is the last time
We never meet again, no comeback!
