The Lyrics

Irene's the name - wrecking like a hurricane
Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I'm begging of you - please don't break my town
Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I know a lots of rain is coming down

Your force now is beyond compare
you've grown to Second Class, I dare
your wind speed is some sixty knots or more
Katrina was just ache and pain
and now you're bringing lots of rain
I need to nail shut windows and the doors

They talk about you in the news
Big Apple's gonna get a bruise
from raining when you hit the shore, Irene

You'll soak the top- and underground
when you're hitting New York town
But you don't know what it means to me, Irene

Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I'm begging of you - please don't break my town
Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I know a lots of rain is coming down

You could have had your choice of route
But now you'll wreck my car and boat
And I don't wanna lose my home, Irene

I never had you in my dreams
Katrina wrecked the New Orleans
And now you'll gonna break New York, Irene

Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I'm begging of you - please don't break my town
Irene, Irene, Irene, Irene
I know a lots of rain is coming down
Irene, Irene!

Excellent piece of work Susanna. I hope you don't mind that I voted you a 5 on Funny - I can't imagine the real-life situation being funny to anyone going through it - but I didn't want to vote you down on a technicality. 555

I have had friends out at sea at Maine. Last time I heard of them, they had seeked safety in a bay and lowered three anchors. They have been in weathers like that before, and they know what to do. Needless to say, they have been in my prayers these past days.
