Don’t Say Goodnight

The Everly Brothers


Fifteen years come December
We were so young; do you still remember
When I fell in love with you
And like an older brother would do
I’d keep tellin’ you things like
Don’t go walkin’ past midnight
Don’t wear those sweaters that fit so tight
Unless you’re alone here with me
That’s the way I always want it to be
Don’t say goodnight
You know I never want to let you go
Don’t say goodnight
Oh baby, hold me close and don’t say no
One more hour, if we could
You make me feel so good
Say it’s all right
Darlin’, don’t say goodnight
Your daddy said he’d disown you
He’d get so nervous every time I’d ‘phone you
I tried to make him understand
You were a woman then, and I was your man
I’d be tellin’ him things like
I swear that I’ll always love her
I’ll break my back to keep a roof above her
Then he’d say it’s time for you to go in
Oh baby, I’d just want to kiss you again
Don’t say goodnight
You know I never want to let you go
Don’t say goodnight
Oh baby, hold me close and don’t say no
One more hour, if we could
You make me feel so good
Say it’s all right
Darlin’, don’t say goodnight
Say it’s alright
Darlin’, don’t say goodnight
Say it’s alright
Darlin’, don’t say goodnight…
Say it’s alright
Darlin’, don’t say goodnight
