I purchased this song because it's another favorite from when I was younger. The words and music are great together.

Even though they had multiple hits in their native UK, Dexys Midnight Runners were regulated to one hit wonder status in the US with their lone hit, the Celtic soul charged "Come On Eileen", peaking at number one in 1983. The song is one of the most ubiquitous hits from the 80's and it is insanely catchy. The sing-along too-rye-ay chorus has been drunkenly sung countless times at parties, bars, late night karaoke sessions for the past 30 plus years. The song had the distinction of keeping Michael Jackson from having back-to-back number ones during the height of Thriller mania when the song bumped "Billie Jean" out of the top spot and was replaced one week later by "Beat It".

(Come On Eileen)
(Come On Eileen)

Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio
But he moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried
Sang along
Who'd blame them
You've grown, so grown
Now I must say more than ever
(Come On Eileen)
Too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye, aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

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

(Come On Eileen)

These people round here
Wear beaten-down eyes sunk in smoke-dried faces
They're so resigned to what their fate is
But not us (no, never)
No, not us (no, never)
We are far too young and clever (remember)
Too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye, aye
And you'll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen
Oh, I swear what he means
Aah, come on let's
Take off everything
That pretty red dress
Eileen (tell him yes)
Aah, come on let's
Aah, come on Eileen

That pretty red dress
Eileen (tell him yes)
Aah, come on let's
Aah, come on Eileen

Come on Eileen, too-loo-rye-aye
Come on Eileen, too-loo-rye-aye
Now you're full grown
Now you have shown
Oh, Eileen

Say, come on Eileen
These things they are real and I know
How you feel
Now I must say more than ever
Things round here have changed
I say, too-ra-loo-ra, too-ra-loo-rye-aye

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

Aah, come on Eileen
Oh,

One of the best songs of early 1980's. Quirky, different, exhilarating. When I first heard it, my teenage son was playing it at the opposite end of the house. When he heard me running down the hall, he thought he was in trouble and quickly moved to turn the volume down, when I burst into his room, exhorting him to turn it UP. We still laugh about that scene.

Best damn one hit wonder ever. I once put $20 bill in the juke and played this 40 times in a row. Granted this was in Pittsburgh many years ago, but it did put a smile on the face of two of my buddies, who adjourned to the parking lot for a breather with two willing young lasses. The ladies smiled, too.....

I always liked the folksy sound of this song. I sampled their other songs on Amazon , but I just can't relate. Maybe it's that sound & style that work in UK but not USA .Maybe it's just the 80's thing.

This song reminds me of a summer in the south of England many years ago.It is so special that music can transport us in that way.It is also the ultimate bar or party song!

This is definitely one of the best 1 hit wonders from the eighties. In my opinion it is in my top 100 songs from the 80's era and ranks in the top 50.
