Not exactly.

The 1981 Statler Brothers song, Don't Wait on Me, contains the line "When the lights go on at Wrigley Field I'll be comin home to you". The song is basically about a guy who is telling his 'girlfriend' not to wait for him and that there is a better chance for lights to be put in Wrigley Field than for her to see him again. Of course, the song was released in 1981, seven years before the first night game in Wrigley.

After the lights were installed in Wrigley, in some renditions of the song the Statler Brothers would sing "When they put a dome on Wrigley Field I'll be comin home to you" instead of "When the lights go on at Wrigley Field I'll be comin home to you".

When were lights installed at Wrigley Field?

The first game under the lights at Wrigley field was played August 8, 1988 between the Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies. Ironically, the rains came and the game was called in the 4th inning. The first complete night game was played the next night against the New York Mets. The Cubs won 6-4. I have what appears to be a photograph that was published in either a magazine or newspaper showing Wrigley Field with full stadium lighting and with a caption below that says, "Photograph of opening night game at Wrigley Field-July 22, 1930".
