Good Night My Friends

Versions : #1#2
Good night, my friends,
I must leave now, it is time.
What I haven't told you yet,
will take one more cigarette,
and another glass of wine.
 
For the day and the night under your roof I thank you,
thanks for the place at your table, too,
for each glass of wine I drank,
for a plate, that you always added to yours,
as if nothing were more natural in the world.
 
Good night, my friends,
I must leave now, it is time.
What I haven't told you yet,
will take one more cigarette,
and another glass of wine.
 
Thanks for the time, you were chatting away with me,
and for your patience, when there were different points of view.
Thanks for not asking me, when I'd come or leave,
for the door I'm standing in, always open to me.
 
Good night, my friends,
I must leave now, it is time.
What I haven't told you yet,
will take one more cigarette,
and another glass of wine.
 
Thanks for the freedom, that you host as a steady guest,
you never ask for profit, benefit, or your own best.
Maybe the reason is, that from the outside
it seems, that your windows spread a warmer light.
 
[2 x;] Good night, my friends,
I must leave now, it is time.
What I haven't told you yet,
will take one more cigarette,
and another glass of wine.
 
Merci !
