"Good Night" as written by John Winston Lennon and Paul James Mccartney....
Now it's time to say good night
Good night sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night sleep tight
Now the moon begins to shine
Good night sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me
Dream sweet dreams for you.

Good night good night everybody
Evberybody everywhere
Good night.

    General CommentThe lyrics are simple and innocent of any subtext that says it's anything but a lullaby.

    Looking further, it is the Beatles consoling the listeners, after the chaos and oblivion of Revolution 9, and the cultural mayhem it suggests (of the whole wildness of the White Album, really), with this overtly hopeful (and rather mawkish) gesture that things are indeed, at least temporarily, just peachy. For all of you who are upset about what just happened, here you go, take it easy, it's all good! It's almost cynical about what they predict will be the fallout of putting something like Revolution 9 on a Beatles record. I think part of them is laughing at a lot of the listener base that they know are a little less open to new musical and artistic concepts.

    Personally, I have always experienced this piece in an additional way. The combination of the overtly sentimental arrangement and Ringo's dirgelike voice make for something that crosses over into creepy territory and makes me think not just of death, but of suicide. Possibly even a suicide pact! I know this is just my personal stretch on a meaning. I'm waiting, however, for someone to use this song in film to backdrop effectively and eerily some scene of suicide or death.

    General Comment...perfect song...amazingly john's contribution...i don't try and get into the meaning of this too much...its just john's farewell to the dream...(although on plastic ono he'd give you the revelation)...wdc

    General CommentThere is no meaning to it, it's simply meant as a lullaby... and, from the limited notes I can remember on the subject, it's Ringo who sings it. Indeed, The Plastic Ono Band is the true revelation of the dream set by the farewell of this song.

    General CommentWho's to say that there's no meaning in it? Did you write it Bobo192? I'm not meaning offense, but I'd have to say that any song I've ever heard has some sort of meaning... whether I agree with it or not, without meaning, there would be no song. Being that Lennon and McCartney are also two of the most acclaimed musical visionaries of our time, I think it has lots of meaning.

    General CommentTrue, I'm sorry. I'm just takin' information from stuff I've read. I was in essence agreeing with venus that that there isn't much to read within John's revelation.

    Smilin', as always

    General CommentGreat song...puts me in a spooky, calm mood. Lennon did a wonderful job on this, and he did right by letting Ringo sing it.

    General CommentSounds very Disneyesque. Coming straight after Revolution 9 I think it is just a bit of humour
