She said it's 3 AM
And everybody else is fast asleep in bed
And I can't seem to find the switch to turn the lights off
Even though you need to fall asleep

Goodnight, moon
I'll close my eyes, okay, alright and say
Goodnight to the shadows on the wall
We're drifting through the empty streets with weightless feet
Singing goodnight to the moon

I think you're cute when you are dreaming
All about the city lights around
And when you wake up after daybreak
So will everyone who lives in town

They'll say, "Did you see when Rocket Number Nine took to the open skies late last night?"
They'll say, "It flew beyond the atmosphere and took pictures of the brilliant northern lights!"

Goodnight, moon
I'll close my eyes, okay, alright and say
Goodnight to the shadows on the wall
We're drifting through the empty streets with weightless feet
Singing goodnight to the moon

Turn around, you can turn the car around, girl
Because there's something that's caught my eye
And I've been writing it down, girl
In case you ever said goodbye
You'll have to wait and see
When you open your eyes wide
How does you feel
After a night long car ride?

Goodnight, moon

    Lyric Correction
    She said it's three AM
    and everybody else is fast asleep in bed
    and I can't seem to find the switch to turn the lights off
    even though you need to fall asleep

    Goodnight moon
    I'll close my eyes, okay, alright and say
    Goodnight to the shadows on the wall
    We're drifting through the empty streets with weightless feet
    singing goodnight to the moon

    I think you're cute when you are dreaming
    all about the city lights around
    and when you wake up after daybreak
    so will everyone who lives in town

    They'll say, "did you see when Rocket Number Nine took to the open skies late last night?"
    They'll say, "it flew beyond the atmosphere and took pictures of the brilliant northern lights!"

    Goodnight moon
    I'll close my eyes, okay, alright and say
    Goodnight to the shadows on the wall
    We're drifting through the empty streets with weightless feet
    singing goodnight to the moon

    Turn around, you can turn the car around girl
    because there's something that's caught my eye
    and I've been writing it down, girl
    in case you ever said goodbye
    You'll have to wait and see
    when you open your eyes wide
    how does you feel
    after a night long car ride?

    Goodnight, moon...
