Come on Eileen

The Emerald Express, Dexys Midnight RunnersBuy this song

Come on Eileen 
Come on Eileen 

Poor old Johnny Ray
 Sounded sad upon the radio 
But he 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
Wear beat down eyes sunk in smoke dried faces 
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'l 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  These things they are real and I know
How you feel
Now I must say more than ever
 Things round here have changed 
I say, too ra loo ra, too ra-loo 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
