Hey Eileen
(Rick Springfield)

Hey Eileen
Young and fourteen
Caught between a woman and a girl
Hey Eileen
Full of big dreams
Fate steps in and kicks you out into the world

Hey Eileen
Sweet Sixteen
Your Mama's dead and your daddy's gone
Hey Eileen
Life's been mean but 
Headstrong girl's gonna carry on

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na

Made up your mind
You're going to bury your pain
You have no intention of ever again letting
someone get that close to you
You swore it, but it's funny how things work out

Hey Eileen
Just turned Eighteen
Clutches a bible to her broken heart
Hey Eileen
Working a washing machine
Your life is about to start

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na

He's been watching you baby
When you felt most alone
Now he's holding his hand out
He wants you to take it
And look into his eyes and 
Find the love that's hiding
Somewhere down inside of you Eileen

Hey Eileen, Eileen

Ten dollars down on a wedding ring
and you marry a man
You had the kids and you bought the house
Like you always planned
Life's been good and life's been bad
Did you suffer from the things that you never had?
You turn around and count to ten
And you're left here standing on your own again (again, again)

Hey Eileen
How's your life been?
Looking back after all these years
Hey Eileen
I know what you mean when  you count the rainbows in your tears

Eileen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey Eileen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey Eileen
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Hey
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

Hey Eileen
