Come On Eileen

Poor old Johnny Ray — Sounded sad upon the radio
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried — Sang along — and who would blame them
Now – you’re grown — So grown
Now I must say more than ever
Go toora loora toora loo rye aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen — well I swear (what he means)
At this moment — you mean everything
With you in that dress – Oh my thoughts (I confess)
Verge on dirty — Ah come on Eileen

These people round here
Wear Beaten down eyes sunk in smoke dried faces
So resigned to what their fate is
But not us — No not us
We are far too young and clever
Go toora loora toora loo rye aye
Eileen I’ll hum this tune forevermore

Come on Eileen — well I swear (what he means)
Ah come on let’s — take off everything
That pretty red dress — Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on let’s — Ah come on Eileen
That pretty red dress — Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on let’s — Ah come on Eileen

Come on – Eileen too-rye aye — Come on – Eileen too-rye aye
Now you have grown — Now you have shown — oh-oh – Eileen
Said come on along – There’s things that I really wanna know – oh-oh
Now I must say more than ever
Go toora loora toora loo rye aye
