"Thank You and Good Night" is the seventh and final track from Weezer's 2022 EP, SZNZ: Summer.

Appearances

Overview

Cuomo first mentioned the song under an acronym on his Discord server on June 6, 2022, after being asked what his favorite song from SZNZ: Summer was. [1] On June 11, Cuomo shared a voice note clip of the song to fans, revealing the title to be "Thank You and Good Night". [2]

The bridge melody to "Thank You and Good Night" resembles that of a previous Weezer song, "Beginning of the End" (itself lifted the chorus of the solo Cuomo demo "Volunteers"). It is unknown if this was an intentional allusion.

Lyrics

In the first game of my rookie season
I was way out of my league
Mollycoddled in a coliseum
Falling apart at the seams

Everybody laughed at me
Like I was a chimpanzee
Shouting at the sky
I swore I'd learn to fly
Now look at me

Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you

Sorry I never did get the memo
My drummer is playing off-beat
Marching off in a unique direction
While you're all stuck on repeat

They say to each his own, that's true
Some will cheer for red and some blue
While I'm up in the sky waving my goodbye
Toodle-oo, toodle-oo

Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you
Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you
Ain't no kid on crutches, ain't no kid on crutches
Let's see where the love is when I'm buzzing
Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you

Strap in, put a headset on
Inject the helium
My joystick in my hand
We yaw from side to side
Toggle to give it thrust
Keep focused on the task
Up, up, and up we go
We're gaining forward speed

Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you
Thank you and good night
I'll be seeing you when I'll be seeing you
Ain't no kid on crutches, ain't no kid on crutches
Let's see where the love is when I'm buzzing

From this vantage I can see
Everybody looking up at me
And I know how it will be
It will be, it will be
I gotta keep flying, flying
From this vantage I can see
Everybody looking up at me
And I know how it will be
It will be, it will be
I gotta keep flying, flying
I gotta keep flying, flying

Thank you
Thank you and good night
Good night

I'll be seeing you
I'll be seeing you
