GOODNIGHT, SWEETHEART, GOODNIGHT
(Calvin Carter and James "Pookie" Hudson)

Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
I hate to leave you but I really must say,
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
I hate to leave you but I really must say,
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

Well, it's three o'clock in the morning.
Baby, I just can't sleep tonight. [or "treat you right"?, or "can't get right", or "you won't treat me right"?]
Well, I hate to leave you, baby, don't mean maybe,
Because I love you so.

Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
I hate to leave you but I really must say,
Oh, goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

Mother, and your father
Don't like it if I stay here too long.
One kiss in the dark and I'll be going.
You know I hate to go.

Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Well, it's time to go.
I hate to leave you but I really must say,
Oh goodnight sweetheart, goodnight.

[Originally performed by the 5 piece doo-wop group The Spaniels. Written in 1954, it was a #5 R&B hit. Written by Calvin Carter and James (Pookie) Hudson (lead singer for The Spaniels). Re-released by The McGuire Sisters. Popularized in the 1970s by the group Sha Na Na, who used it to close their TV show each week.]

Maybe what was wanted was this song, famously done by Guy Lombardo:

Copied from http://www.ne.jp/asahi/cat/mayday/spiner/oye/oyetxt.html

GOODNIGHT, SWEETHEART
(Ray Noble, Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly)

Goodnight, sweetheart, till we meet tomorrow.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Sleep will banish sorrow.
Tears and parting may make us forlorn,
But with the dawn, a new day is born.
So I'll say:
Goodnight, sweetheart, though I'm not beside you.
Goodnight, sweetheart. Still my love will guide you.
Dreams enfold you. In each one, I'll hold you.
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

[Some versions substitute these lines for the first 2 above:]
Goodnight, sweetheart. All my prayers are for you
Goodnight, sweetheart. I'll be watching o'er you

GOOD NIGHT, SWEETHEART

VERSE 1:
The day is over and its cares and woes
In peaceful sweet repose
Will fade and die.
A dreamy dreamland beckons you and me.
How happy life would be,
If we could dream forever!

REFRAIN:
Good night, sweetheart,
Till we meet tomorrow.
Good night, sweetheart,
Sleep will banish sorrow.
Tears and parting
May make us forlorn,
But with the dawn
A new day is born.
(So I'll say) Good night, sweetheart,
Tho' I'm not beside you.
Good night, sweetheart,
Still my love will guide you.
Dreams enfold you,
In each one I'll hold you.
Good night, sweetheart, goodnight.

VERSE 2:
Let others dread the thought of parting time,
No reason or no rhyme
In thinking so.
To us the sweetest hour is parting time,
For then we really find
Love's perfect glow revealing.

REPEAT REFRAIN

~Masato

Was listening to this fine song today. It's been ten years since it was last mentioned.
The Guy Lombardo 1931 record is on youtube, also Bing Crosby.
