Tom Waits – Goodnight, Irene

irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

last saturday night i got married
me and my wife settled down
now me and my wife are parted
i’m gonna take me a little stroll uptown

oh, irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

ah, sometimes i live in the country
sometimes i live in town
sometimes i take a great notion
to jump in the river and drown

oh, irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

well i love irene, god knows i do
i love her til the sea runs dry
if she ever loves another
i’m gonna take morphine and die

oh, irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

stop your ramblin’, stop your gamblin’
stop staying out late at night
go home to your wife and your family
sit down by the firelight

everybody!

oh, irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
oh, goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

oh, goodnight irene, goodnight, irene
irene, goodnight
oh, goodnight, irene, goodnight, irene
i kiss you in my dreams

in my time of dying
