GOODNIGHT SWEETHEART, GOODNIGHT

There was a linky on the CB the other day to a guy singing this song to some puppies to make them go to sleep. It worked!

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, good night.

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, good night.

Well, it's three o'clock in the morning,
Baby, I just can't treat you 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,
GOODNIGHT, sweetheart, good night.

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, good night.

Now, my mother and my father,
Might hear if I stay here too long,
One kiss and we'll part,
And you'll be going, you know how I hate to see you 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,
GOODNIGHT, sweetheart, good night.

Mum sings this, at least the refrain part, to me a lot too when it gets to be bed time. If fits me well as I am "Derby Sweetheart Cat" to my lovely ladycat Ms Princess Mia Bella. I don't always fall asleep, but mum does! She sings herself to sleep.
Plus you can check out the
original way this was sung so many years ago. It was sung by The Spaniels, maybe that is why it was so good to put puppies to sleep. I know other people sang it too.

Mum and Grampie finished up the metal monster room project today. Mum is happy and so am I, less noise from out there to disturb my naps.

Plus mum pulled out some of the left over roast beast for their lunch. I got some too. Now mum is off to have dinner with Miss Lynn, I hope she brings home some good stuff to eat.

  6. That is nice of your mom to sing to you. We hate it when our mom sings and bite each other.

    You look very comfortable sleeping there. We hope your mom brought something good for you to eat back from lunch with her friend.
