Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I love a girl named Madeline
I know she loves me, too
For ev'ry night the moon is bright
She rides in my canoe
Verse 2
At midnight on the river
I heard her father call,
But she don't care and I don't care
If we get back at all
Verse 3
'Cause when I'm paddlin' Madeline home
Gee! When I'm paddlin' Madeline home
First I drift with the tide,
Then pull for the shore
I hug her and kiss her
And paddle some more
Verse 4
Then I keep paddlin' Madeline home
Until I find a spot where we're alone
Oh! She never says "No"
So I kiss her and go
Paddlin' Madeline
Sweet sweet Madeline
Paddlin' Madeline home
Verse 5
'Cause when I'm paddlin' Madeline home
Gee! When I'm paddlin' Madeline home
First I kiss her a while
And when I get through
I paddle for one mile
And drift back for two
Verse 6
Then I keep paddlin' Madeline home
Until I find a spot where we're alone
Oh! If she'd only say "Throw your paddles away"
Paddlin' Madeline
Sweet sweet Madeline
Paddlin' Madeline home
