Dexys Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen – 1982

    Paroles

    Poor old Jonny Ray
    Sounded sad upon the radio
    He moved a million hearts in mono
    Out mothers moved sing along, who would blame them

    Now you’re grown (so grown up)
    So grown (so grown up) now I must say more than ever
    Toora loora torra 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
    With you in that dress, oh my thoughts I confess
    Verge on dirty
    Ah come on Eileen

    These people ’round here
    With their 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

    Come on Eileen

    Toora loora toora loo rye aye
    I’ve been on this toon forever

    Come on Eileen well I swear (what he means)
    Ah come on lets take off everything
    That pretty red dress, oh Eileen (tell him yes)
    Ah come on lets, ah come on Eileen

    Come on Eileen toora ta loo rye aye
    Come on Eleen toora ta loo rye aye
    Torra torra ta loo rye
    Oh Eileen
    I said come on Eileen
    Oh come on Eileen
    We are far to young and clever, and things wont ever change
    I said

    Toora loora toora loo rye aye

    Sung in backround
    Come on Eileen toora ta loo rye aye
    Come on Eleen toora ta loo rye aye
    Torra torra ta loo rye

    Come on Eileen oh I swear (what he means)
    At this moment you mean everything to me
    Oh to me, Oh Eileen
    You mean everything
