Come on, Eileen (Video)

(|: Come on, Eileen! :|)

Poor old Johnny Ray
sounded sad upon the radio
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried and sang along - who'd blame them?*

You've grown, so grown
Now I must say more than ever (Come on Eileen)
Toora loora toora loo-rye aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen, I swear (well he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Verge on dirty, ah come on Eileen

These people round here, wear beaten down eyes
Sunk in smoke dried faces, so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no not us), we are far too young and clever (remember)
Toora loora toora loo-rye-aye, Eileen, I'll hum this tune forever.

Come on Eileen, I swear (well he means)
Ah, come on, let's take off everything
Pretty red dress Eileen (tell him yes)
Ah, come on, let's... ah, come on, Eileen!

|: Come on, Eileen taloo-rye-aye :|
(Now you have grown, now you have shown, oh, Eileen)
Said, come on, Eileen taloo-rye-aye
You've grown, so grown (show how you feel)
Now I must say more than ever
Things 'round here have changed
I said too-ra-loo-ra-too-ra-loo-rye-aye

Chorus (bis)

*Das war sicher bevor herauskam, daß er schwul war ;-)
