    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

    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

    '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

    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

    '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

    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

    I added a webpage link (above) where people can download the song.
    The song lyrics on the recording are some different than what is typed in the lyrics on this page.

    Another one of the songs I thought was a Demento Classic, thanks to taping this song from a Dr. Demento show, but it ends up as only played once in SYNDication.

    I recently found this tune on a piano roll. No player piano to play it on.
