Well I asked your mother for you
She told me that you were too young
I wish, dear Lord, that I'd never seen your face
I'm sorry that you ever was born

Irene, good night
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 get a great notion
To jump into the river and drown

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

Stop ramblin' and stop gambling
Quit staying out so late at night (so late)
Go home to your wife and your family
Sit down by the fire side, bright

(Come on)
Irene, good night
Irene, good night
Good night Irene
Good night Irene
I'll get you in my dreams

Well I love Irene and god knows that I do
I love her until the sea runs dry
If Irene turns her back on me
Ima take morphine and die

(Come on now)
Well,
Irene, good night
Irene, good night
Good night Irene
Good night Irene
I'll get you in my dreams
I'll get you in my dreams
