Fifteen years come December:
We were so young; do you still remember
When I fell in love with you?
And like an older brother would do

I'd keep tellin' you things like
Don't go walkin' past midnight,
Don't wear those sweaters that fit so tight
Unless you're alone here with me
That's the way I always want it to be

Don't say goodnight,
You know I never want to let you go
Don't say goodnight
Oh baby, hold me close and don't say no
One more hour, if we could;
You make me feel so good
Say it's all right
Darlin', don't say goodnight

Your daddy said he'd disown you
He'd get so nervous every time I'd ‘phone you
I tried to make him understand
You were a woman then, and I was your man

I'd be tellin' him things like
I swear that I'll always love her,
I'll break my back to keep a roof above her
Then he'd say it's time for you to go in
Oh baby, I'd just want to kiss you again

Don't say goodnight
You know I never want to let you go
Don't say goodnight.
Oh baby, hold me close and don't say no
One more hour, if we could;
You make me feel so good

Say it's all right
Darlin', don't say goodnight
Say it's alright
Darlin', don't say goodnight

Say it's alright
Darlin', don't say goodnight
Say it's alright
Darlin', don't say goodnight
