Lyrics

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams

last Saturday night I got married
me and my wife settled down
now me and my wife are parted
I'm gonna take me a little stroll uptown

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams

sometimes I live in the country
sometimes I live in town
sometimes I take a great notion
to jump in the river and drown

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams

I love Irene god knows I do
I'll love her till the sea runs dry
if she ever loves another
someone'll take morphine and die

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams

stop your rambling
stop your gambling
stop staying out late at night
go home to your wife and your family
sit down by the fire light

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams

Irene good night
Irene Irene good night
good night Irene
good night Irene
I'll get you
in my dreams
