I remember it as an advertising jingle from the late 1960s or early 1970s. "Dolly Madison snacks and cakes, they're good to go!" I haven't been able to find any of those old ads, though, and my memory is fallible. ;)

The expression was originally "God be with Ye (or you)", as a sort of blessing or good luck phrase to someone leaving your presence and was later shortened to 'good bye'.
