"The Music Man" opened at Chicago's Goodman Theatre this month, and that's had me thinking about bringing one of its songs up to date. Here's my take on "Good Night, My Someone," 2019 style.
Good night, my someone, good night, my love,
sleep tight, my someone, sleep tight, my love,
our phones are shining their bright blue lights
for all night, my friend, for all night!
Sweet dreams be with you, if dreams can be
so sweet with a phone so close to see.
I wish they may, and I wish they might,
so good night, my someone, good night!
True love can be sent now from phone to phone
The cellular companies all say
But I must depend on the phone all alone
as long as I can't see where you are today.
Good night, my someone, good night, my love!
Sleep tight, my someone, sleep tight, my love!
My battery's dying, it's time to part --
so good night, o friend of my heart!
Good ni --
