           Goodnight, Sweet Dreams, Goodnight

< instrumental opening  > 
Goodnight and sweet dreams to you . . .
Goodnight, one kiss, then adieu . . .
Though the seconds will be hours until we met again,
Goodnight, sweet dreams, goodnight!

You've shared my joy and even shared my sorrow,
but through it all your love came smiling through . . .
Goodnight, tomorrow's the day
we'll hear the church organ play . . .
And I'll never ever leave you to dream alone again
Goodnight, sweet dreams, goodnight!

with whistling by Elmo Tanner  >
