lyrics

GOODNIGHT LONDON
Music and Lyrics by Mike Dawson & Lisa Lazo © 2009 Beechers Brook Publishing

I.
Sunsets quite late, then beacons dawn early one morning
Postcard vistas, a summer breeze fills the village pub

Chorus:
Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face

II.
Crowd loves their music loud, jazz, blues, and rock n’ tunes
Rebel singer and piano player, tomorrow they’re both homeward bound

Chorus:
Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face

(Instrumental)

III.

Six hours later, flying back on the red eye home
Plane stops late at JFK, catch some winks in Queens

Bridge:
Bandleader is sad and blue
Old world shows him something new
He’s got a gig in Times Square
‘Rather be playing at an English fair
Great songs of love is the wicked groove
Peace and love is the British news
London never weeps, Soho music speaks
Band will return sometime soon

Chorus:
Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face

Coda:
London never weeps, Soho music speaks
Goodnight London, Goodnight London, Goodbye to your sweet face
