Perry Como - "I Wish We Didnt Have To Say Goodnight" lyrics

I wish we didn't have to say goodnight
I wish that I could stay and hold you tight
I wish, I wish, I wish, by every star above
That we could linger long enough to fall in love!

I hate to be the one to break away
When I've a heart that you could take away
I hate to miss the kisses that your lips invite
I wish we didn't have to say goodnight!

Look at that moon, beamin' out loud
He knows that I'm dreamin' out loud
He sort of seems to say the time is right
I wish we didn't have to say goodnight!

I wish we didn't have to say goodnight!

Look at that moon, beamin' out loud
He knows that I'm dreamin' out loud
He sort of seems to say the time is right
I wish we didn't have to say goodnight . . . hmmm

I wish we didn't have to say goodnight!
