Swapping Knobbly Tyres for Road Tyres

Please can anyone tell me what size tyres I can use for the following.

I have a ten year old mountain bike, it is a cheap TOWNSEND (embarrassingly down market I know but it works), and I now want to drag it from the depths of my garage and ride it to commute 8.5 miles to work and 8.5 miles back home by road.

The tyres fitted at the moment are knobbly tyres measuring 26" x 1.75 at the front and 26" x 1.95 at the rear. I want to fit just a standard road tyre to front and rear but can I fit any 26" road tyre because there are a confusingly different number of widths and treads? Am I right in thinking that any 26" tyre will fit as the wheels are standard size at the point where the beading sits?

Thanks
