Goodnight Irene
Little Richard Lyrics


Saturday night we got mar-arried (yeah)
Me and my wi-ife settled dow-own (yeah)
Now me and my wi-ife we're par-arted (yeah)
Gonna take another stro-oll down tow-own

Irene goodni-i-i-ight, Irene goodni-ight
Goodnight Ire-ene, Goodnight Irene
I'll see you i-in my drea-eams

Sometime I live in the country babe (yeah)
Sometime I li-I've down tow-own (yeah)
Sometime I ta-ake a great notio-ion (yeah)
To jump in the river and drow-own

Irene goodni-i-i-ight, Irene goodni-ight
Goodnight Ire-ene, Goodnight Irene
I'll see you i-in my drea-eams

Stop gamblin and stop all the ramblin (yeah)
Stop stayin out la-ate at ni-ight (yeah)
Go home to your wife and your fam'ly (yeah)
Sit down by the fireside bri-ight

Irene goodni-i-i-ight, Irene goodni-ight
Goodnight Ire-ene, Goodnight Irene
I'll see you in (fade)

Little Richard knocks this song out of the damn park. Amazeballs.

It's my favourite version of this Lead Belly song. Little Richard was one of the strongest singers along with James Brown.
