"(Tell Me) What's Good About Good Night?"

from JOY OF LIVING (1938)

music by Jerome Kern, lyrics by Dorothy Fields

  Tell me what's good about "Good night."
Find me the fun in being lonely?

Yes, I still have my dreams.
They'll see me through.
Darling, you take the dreams.
Take the dreams. 
I'll take you.

One breathless kiss and you are gone.
Then I'll have nothing to hang onto.
Parting is bad enough.
Please, won't you set me right.
Tell me what's good about "Good night."
