Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I take a great notion
To jump in the river and drown

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight irene
Goodnight irene
Ill see you in my dreams

Last saturday night I got married
Me and my wife settled down
Me and my wife parted
Think I'll take another walk downtown

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight irene
Goodnight irene
Ill see you in my dreams

I love irene God knows I do
Ill love her all my life
If irene should ever leave me
Ill take morphine and die

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight irene
Goodnight irene
Ill see you in my dreams

Stop your rambling stop your gambling
Stop staying out late at night
Come home to your wife and family
Sit by the fireside bright

Irene goodnight
Irene goodnight
Goodnight irene
Goodnight irene
Ill see you in my dreams

Goodnight irene
Goodnight irene
Ill see you in my dreams
