I asked your mother for you.
She told me that you was too young.
I wish the lord I never seen your face
Or heard your lying tounge.

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

Sometimes I live in the country,
Sometimes I live in town,
Sometimes I have a great notion;
To Jump in the river and drown

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

Stop ramblin', and stop your gamblin'.
Stop staying out late at night.
Come home to your wife and family
To die by the fireside bright.

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

I love Irene, God knows I do.
Love her until the sea run dry.
If Irene turns her back on me
I'm gonna take a morphine and die.

Goodni- Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.

Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight,
Goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Irene.
I'll see you in my dreams.
