Come On Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners


Come on Eileen

Come on Eileen

Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio
Moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried, sang along who'd blame them
You've grown, so grown, now I must say more than ever
Come on Eileen
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 my 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
They're so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no never) no not us (no never)
We are far too young and clever (clever)
Toora loora toora loo rye aye
Eileen I'll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen well I swear (what he means)
Ah come on, let's take off everything
That pretty white dress Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on lets, oh come on Eileen
That pretty white dress Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on lets, oh come on Eileen
Come on Eileen too-loo rye-ay
Come on Eileen too-loo rye-ay
Now you are grown
Now you have shown oh Eileen
Said, Come on, these things they are real
And I know how you feel
Now I must say more than ever
Things round here have changed
I said too-ra loo-ra too-ra loo-rye-aye
Come on Eileen well I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everthing
You in that dress my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen
Come on Eileen Oh I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everthing
In that dress Oh my thoughts I confess
Well they're dirty
Ah come on Eileen
