Little Richard – Goodnight Irene lyrics

Saturday night we got mar-arried (yeah)
Me and my wi-ife settled dow-own (yeah)
Now me and my wi-ife we're par-arted (yeah)
Gonna take another stro-oll down tow-own
Irene goodni-i-i-ight, Irene goodni-ight
Goodnight Ire-ene, Goodnight Irene
Ill see you i-in my drea-eams
Sometime I live in the country babe (yeah)
Sometime I li-I've down tow-own (yeah)
Sometime I ta-ake a great notio-ion (yeah)
