Lyrics THERE'S A GUY
WHO COMES CALLING
ON THE GAL
WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR,
AND THE GAL
WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR
IS CALLED IRENE.
EVERY NIGHT
I HEAR HIM CALLING
TO THE GAL
WHO LIVES NEXT DOOR,
GOODNIGHT!, GOODNIGHT!, GOODNIGHT! GOODNIGHT!
UNTIL I WANT TO SCREAM:

OH, PLEASE SAY GOODNIGHT
TO THE GUY, IRENE,
AND LET ME GET SOME SLEEP.
PLEASE SAY GOODNIGHT
OR I'LL DIE, IRENE.
WON'T YOU GIVE US
BOTH A BREAK,
SAY GOODNIGHT
FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE,
WE'VE BEEN HAVING
THUNDER SHOWERS
AND HIS CLOTHES
ARE SOAKING WET,
HE'S BEEN HANGING
AROUND FOR HOURS
AND YOU
HAVEN'T ANSWERED YET,
HAVE MERCY!
PLEASE SAY GOODNIGHT
TO THE GUY, IRENE,
GET LOST, IRENE,
GO WEST, IRENE,
GO NORTH,
GO SOUTH,
GO EAST,
I NEED SOME REST,
IRENE,
AND LET ME
GET SOME SLEEP.
