Come on Eileen, come on Eileen 

Poor old Johnny Ray
 Sounded sad upon the radio 
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers used to sing along 
Who'd blame them?

You're grown 
(You're grown up)
So grown 
(So grown up)
Now I must say more than ever

Come on Eileen 
Toora, loora, toora, loorye, aye
And we can sing just like our fathers 

Come on Eileen 
Oh, I swear, well, he means 
At this moment, you mean everything 

You in that dress 
Oh, my thoughts, I confessed  Verge on the dirty 
Ah, come on Eileen 

Come on Eileen  These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes
Sun in smoke dried faces  Resigned to what their fate is

But not us
(No, never)
No, not us
(No, never)
We are far too young and clever  Remember 

Toora, loora, toora, loorye, aye
Eileen, I'll let this tune forever 
Toora, loora, toora, loorye, aye
Eileen, I'll let this tune forever 

Come on Eileen 
Oh, I swear, well, he means 
Ah, come on let's take off everything 

That pretty red dress 
Oh, Eileen tell him yes
Oh, come on let's, ah, come on Eileen 

Come on Eileen 
Oh, I swear, well, he means 
At this moment you mean everything 

Come on Eileen, tooloorye, aye
Come on Eileen, tooloorye, aye
Toora, toora tooloorye, oh, Eileen 

I said, come on Eileen oh, come on Eileen 
We are far too young and clever 
And things won't ever change 
And I say, toora, loora, toora loorye, aye

Come on Eileen 
Oh, I swear, well, he means 
At this moment, you mean everything to me

Oh, to me, oh, Eileen 
You mean everything
