Lyrics

[Chorus:] Irene, goodnight, Irene, goodnight, Goodnight, Irene, Goodnight, Irene, I'll see you in my dreams. Last Saturday night I got married, Me and my wife settle down, Now me and my wife are parted, I'm gonna take another stroll in town. [Chorus] Sometimes I live in the country, Sometimes I live in town, Sometimes I have a great notion, To jump in the river and drown. [Repeat Chorus]
