Thread Name: Lyr Add: Goodnight Irene (parodies)
Subject: Goodnight Irene - Adult Version
Per request after my offer in another thread, here are my own lyrics for Goodnight Irene, which I used for a long time as my standard end-of-show song.

>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

>CHORUS Irene Goodnight, Irene Goodnight
>Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene
>I'll see you in my dreams

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


>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


Lyrics c. Chet Williamson, but feel free to use them. Send money if you have a big hit record. If these lines do not break where they should, please somebody tell me how to do that.

I've had very few objections to this song. Any impropriety is the hearer's responsibility.

Enjoy, Chet W. ^^
