Chorus:
Irene, goodnight
Irene, goodnight
Goodnight irene, goodnight irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Well last saturday night I got married,
Me and my wife settled down
Well now me and my wife are parted,
I'm gonna take another stroll downtown

(chorus)

Some folks they like their sugar
Some folks they like their wine
Some folks love their music
And they sing it all the time

(chorus)

Stop your rambling, why don't you stop your gambling
Well stop your staying out so late at night
Go home to your wife and family
Stay there by the fireside bright

(chorus)
Goodnight irene, goodnight irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Songwriters
HUDDIE LEDBETTER, JOHN A LOMAX
