wouldn't it be nice if we were older?
then we wouldn't have to wait so long
and wouldn't it be nice to live together
in the kind of world where we belong?
you know, it's gonna make it that much better
when we can say goodnight and stay together
wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
in the morning when the day is new?
and after having spent the day together
hold each other close the whole night through?
happy times together we've been spending
i wish that every kiss was never-ending
wouldn't it be nice?
maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray, it might come true
baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do
we could be married
and then we'd be happy
you know, it seems the more we talk about it
it only makes it worse to live without it
but let's talk about it
goodnight, oh baby
sleep tight, oh baby
