Did U-boats have standard naval lights? The red and green lights seen on the sides of ships?

If neutral ships, and ships near their own harbours, could use their lights, then I wouldn't accidentally run into them when Doenitz decides I shall leave Kiel at 2am.

Yes they did. Though there often off.

If you look real close at the conning tower (external view) you can see them, though they are never "on."
