PADDLIN' MADELINE HOME (Harry Woods) (1925) Recorded by : Authentic Band Organ; The Charleston Chasers; Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards; Jackie Gleason; Fred Hartley; Spike Jones; Anson Weeks. 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 (Contributed by RumandCocaCola44 - June 2005)
