    (Better have a good night)

    Making your way in the world today
    Takes everything you got
    Taking a break from all your worries
    It sure would help a lot
    Wouldn't you like to get away?

    Sometimes you want to go
    Where everybody knows your name
    And they're always glad you came
    You want to be where you can see
    The troubles are all the same
    You want to be where everybody knows your name

    (Better have a good night)
    You want to go where people know
    The people are all the same
    You want to go where everybody knows your name

    (Better have a good night)
    (Better have a good night...EEEEENNNGG!!!) Writer/s: Gary Portnoy, Judy Hart

  • Camille from Toronto, OhPerfect theme song for a well written and well acted hit TV show. The tune flows so well with the chorus. This is one of those universal songs that everyone can sing a little bit of, and can relate a lot to.
  • Budoshi from Sandnessjøen, NorwayI just love this tune..:D It was perfect as a stand-alone song, and perfect for the show
