Come on Eileen
Come on Eileen

Poor old Johnny Ray sounded sad upon the radio
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers used to sing along, who'd blame them?

You're grown, so grown now
I must say more than ever
Come on Eileen

Too-ra, loo-ra, too-ra, loo-rye, aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen, oh I swear well he means
At this moment you mean, ev'rything
With you in that dress
Wy thoughts I confess verge on dirty
Ah, come on Eileen
Come on Eileen

These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes sunk in smoke dried faces
Resigned to what their fate is, but not us, not us
We are far too young and clever
Remember

Too-ra, loo-ra, too-ra, loo-rye, aye
Eileen I'll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen, oh I swear well he means
Ahh come on lets take off ev'ry thing
That pretty red dress, Eileen tell him less
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen
That pretty red dress, Eileen tell him less
Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen

Come on, Eileen, too-loo-rye-aye
Come on, Eileen, too-loo-rye

Now you're full grown, now you have shown
Oh Eileen, you're grown, so grown now
I must say more than ever
Thing's 'round here will change I say
Too-ra loo-ra, too-ra loo- rye, aye

Come on Eileen, oh I swear well he means
At this moment you mean ev'ry thing
With you in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah, come on Eileen

Come on Eileen, oh I swear well he means
At this moment you mean ev'ry thing
With you in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah, come on eileen

Come on Eileen, oh I swear well he means
At this moment you mean ev'ry thing
With you in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah, come on Eileen
