Irene Goodnight, Irene goodnight. Goodnight Irene, goodnight Irene, we'll see you in our dreams:

Sometimes she sleeps in pajamas
Sometimes she sleeps in a gown;
But when they're both in the laundry,
Irene is the talk of the town.
Irene never goes off to Dreamland
'Til she's combed every hair on her head;
She puts it in neat little curlers,
Then she hangs it on the post of the bed.
A burglar broke in Irene's bedroom,
The dear girl was sleeping in peace.
Then Irene she fought like a tiger,
'til the burglar called the police..
Irene goodnight,
Irene goodnight.
Goodnight Irene,
Goodnight Irene,
Well see you in our dreams.

That is a nice tribute to the late Betty Garrett. As Irene Lorenzo, she was really funny.

Yeah she was a classy gal. I also liked her as Mrs. Babish on Laverne and Shirley, but All In The Family's held up a little better than L&S. I can't sit through that show any more, but I like to watch AITF once in awhile.
