From Wikipedia :

"Good Night " is the final song by The Beatles on their 1968 album The Beatles (also known as The White Album ). It is sung by Ringo Starr, the only Beatle to appear on the song. The music is provided by an orchestra arranged and conducted by George Martin.

Forgive my ignorance , Why Ringo was the only one ?

and :

Starr became the third member of the group (after Paul McCartney and George Harrison) to record a song credited to the group without the other members performing (Lennon was the fourth with Julia).

What was McCartney's song ? Yesterday ?

and what was George's song ?

If I remember correctly, John Lennon played piano on the original version, but they took it off. The reason why is the same as any creative decision - they thought it was better that way. I'm sure if they thought it could have been improved by other Beatles being on it they would have added something.

It was never more then John playing it for Ringo. Johns on Piano on Anthology 3 , but not singing.

Would love to hear John singing the song, if such a thing exists (Pauls unsure). Theres also a recording of the song with just Ringo singing and John on guitar. Apple should open up the vaults so they can be heard. Just think whats in there.
