chet w Lyr Req: Goodnight Irene (32) ADD: Parody for Goodnight Irene^^^ 03 Feb 98


I heard the following tongue-in-cheek version...OK I wrote it. It has generally been popular around here.

Irene grew up in the country
Her daddy raised chickens and ducks
I called her up last Friday night
To see if she wanted to talk

CHO Irene good night, Irene good night
Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene
I'll see you in my dreams

Irene she drives a Plymouth
And sometimes she drives a truck
Irene was only twelve years old
When she first started to drive

CHORUS

Irene wins money at gambling
She's always had plenty of luck
One night out back of the barroom
A cowboy showed Irene his horse

CHORUS

It's in the ear of the behearer. Please don't be offended.

All in good fun,
Chet W.^^^
