Good Night Sweetheart (two different songs)

Sleep is a behavioral state that is a natural part of every individual’s life. In addition to learning about the importance of sleep to health, an NIH curriculum supplement on sleep, sleep disorders, and biological rhythms for grades 9 to 12  uses sleep as a way to understand scientific concepts and the purpose of scientific research.
You don’t need as much sleep now as you did when you were a little baby. But how much sleep do you need?  And what happens when you don’t get enough sleep? Learn about the role sleep plays in your life from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute .
Safe to Sleep Healthy babies should be placed on their backs to sleep to prevent sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Read more about preventing this leading cause of death in babies 1 month to 1 year of age from Safe to Sleep .
Two different songs ....the first was performed by Guy Lombardo, the other is from the 50's by the Spaniels. You may need to turn up your volume for this music.

Written by Guy Lombardo, Ray Noble, Jimmy Campbell, Reg Connelly, and Rudy Vallee.

Good night sweetheart, 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, good night.


Another Version  (completely different song)

Goodnight, Sweetheart by the Spaniels (1954/1955 Version)

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 mornin'
Baby, I just can't do right
Well, I hate to leave you, baby I 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, goodnight.

Mother, and, oh, your father
Won't like it if we stay out too late
Well, I hate to leave you, baby
Don't mean maybe
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
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight.

[ sing to fade ]
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.
