Come On Eileen Lyrics

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're grown (so grown up)
So grown (so grown up) 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 (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Ah, come on, Eileen

Come on, Eileen

These people 'round here
Were beaten down, eyes sunk in smoke-dried face
They're resigned to what their fate is
But not us, (no never) no not us (no never)
We are far to young and clever
Remember Too ra loo ra too ra loo rye aye
And you'll hum this tune forever

Come on, Eileen oh I swear (what he means)
Ah come on lets, take off everything
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on lets, ah come on, Eileen
That pretty red dress, Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah come on lets, ah come on, Eileen, please

Come on, Eileen too rye aye
Come on, Eileen too rye aye
Now you're full grown
Now you have shown
Oh, Eileen

Said, come on, Eileen (come on, Eileen, too rye aye)
These things they are real and I know (come on, Eileen, too rye aye)
How you feel
Now I must say more than ever (Too ra loo ra, too ra-loo rye aye)
Things round here have changed
I say, too ra loo ra, too ra-loo rye aye (come on, Eileen, too rye aye, come on, Eileen, too rye aye)

Come on, Eileen
Oh, I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty
Aah, come on, Eileen

Oh, come on, Eileen
Oh, I swear (what he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
In that dress, oh my thoughts I confess
Well, they're dirty
Come on, Eileen

Come on, Eileen oh (what he means)
Oh ah come on (everything)

Oh believe me if for losing and dearing your chose
That I gazed on so firmly today
Where to side of will leave you were flying the night
Just like fairy gifts gone in the sky
