Lyrics

Irene 

©2013 John Scunziano  

V1 

Listen my friends, to a fine Irish tale 

Of a red-headed lass named Irene 

Just sit back me boy, and I'll kindly regale 

'bout the day that she walked out on me  

 

V2 

The loveliest gal on this lovely green Isle 

No other man lucky as I 

But luck has a way of not making my day 

When she left - all she left was a smile  

 

Chorus 

I once knew a girl named Irene 

Whose only true love was the sea 

And the one thing I dread, on the day that we wed 

She instead will sail off on a breeze  

 

V3 

If you knew Irene, then you'd sure understand 

My worries are all justified 

For she loves the sea, so much more than her man 

She moves to the flow of the tides  

 

V4 

If only I shared, her love of the sea 

We'd set out of port right away 

But I like the land to be firm under feet 

And the waves made of grass, or of grain  

 

Chorus 

I once knew a girl named Irene 

Whose only true love was the sea 

And the one thing I dread, on the day that we wed 

She instead will sail off on a breeze  

 

Bridge 

Well the day finally came, she agreed to be mine 

Said that "I" was what she wanted most 

But her only request, showed for who she still pined 

When she wished to be wed on the coast  

 

Chorus 

I once knew a girl named Irene 

Whose only true love was the sea 

And when I said, "I do" - I just knew we were thru 

As I watched her sail off on a breeze 

 

I once knew a girl named Irene 

Whose only true love was the sea 

And I wish her well, on the seas where she dwells 

Cause I know she is where she should be

 Yes I know that is where she feels free
