Irene Goodnight

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

    Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight
    Goodnight, Irene, Goodnight, Irene
    I wee you in my dreams

Stop rambling, stop that gambling
Stop staying out late at night
Go home to your wife and your family
And sit by the fireside bright

I love Irene, God knows I do
Love her till the seas run dry
If Irene ever turns her back on me
I'll take morphine and die
