Have A Good Time
Sue Thompson (gets my vote for all-time sexiest female voice, edging out Claudine Longet)
Written by Boudleaux Bryant and Felice Bryant

Peaked at # 31 in 1962

(doo-wah, doo-wah, have a good time)
(doo-wah, doo-wah, have a good time)

Goodbye (goodbye) I hate to see you go
But have a good time (have a good time)
So long, I'll miss you, dear, I know
But have a good time (have a good time)

Have your fling, be gay with your new love
I'm setting you free
Dance and sing, pretend that it's true love
Don't worry 'bout me

I-I-I-I know (I know) that tears will only drive you
Farther away (farther away)
Just go, forget that I'm alive
It's your holiday (it's your holiday)

When you're tired of being reckless and carefree
Remember that I'll be waiting to welcome you home
So have a good time (have a good time)
