GOODNIGHT GOOD NEIGHBOUR Arthur Schwartz (m) Frank Loesser (l) 1943 as rec by Len Camber w Geraldo & his Orch 1944 The lady came from South America, And she was lovely to see; When she arrived in North America, They introduced her to me. And so I showed her the town, And I was such a gallant guide, But when the moon had gone down, I sighed; Goodnight, good neighbour, This evening with you has charmed me so. Tomorrow, those Latin eyes aglow Will haunt me all day! Goodnight, good neighbour, We're back at your door and now we kiss, Though down in Brazil you frown at this; You'll soon learn our ways! I know you're dreaming of a homeland so very dear, Land of many charms, But oh, you'll find another homeland right over here, Right over here in my arms! Goodnight, good neighbour; Though I have no soft guitars to play, Come close to my heart and hear it say, "Good neighbour, goodnight!". Goodnight, good neighbour, Good neighbour, goodnight!
