"Goodnight, But Not Goodbye" was a song sung in 0 ABY by Ackmena, the part-time bartender in the Mos Eisley Cantina. She sang the song to the tune (similar but slower) of "Mad About Me" in order to cheer up her customers, and get them to leave, after the Empire had placed a curfew on the entire Tatoo system.

The lyrics to her song were:

Just one more round, friend,
Then homeward bound, friend.
Don't forget me in your dreams.
Just one more song, friend,
And then so long, friend.
The nights get shorter it seems.
Just one more rhyme, friend.
Yes, it's a crime, friend.
But you know time, friend.
Time can fly.
So it's goodnight, friend.
Goodnight—but not goodbye.


Just one more drop, friend,
Before we stop, friend:
One more moment face to face.
Next time you're dry, friend,
Try stopping by, friend,
If there's a light in the place.
We may not thrive, friend,
But we survive, friend.
Look, we're alive, friend:
You and I.
So say goodnight, friend.
Goodnight—but not goodbye.


Just one more dance, friend.
Just one more chance, friend:
One more chorus, one more tune.
It's not the end, friend,
If you're a friend, friend,
Then you'll come back to me soon,
But it's too late, pal,
To celebrate, pal.
You'll have to wait, pal.
Don't you cry.
Now, it's goodnight, friend.
Goodnight friend.
Goodnight friend.


Da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da,
(Follow me!)
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da,
Da da da da da.


You're such a dear, friend.
You know I'm here, friend.
Is that a tear, friend,
In your eye?
Now, it's goodnight, friend.
Goodnight friend.
Goodnight—but not...
