Verse:
I love a girl named Ma - de - lin',  I know she loves me, too.
For ev -'ry night the moon is bright She rides in my ca - noe.
At mid - night on the ri - ver,  I heard her fa - ther call.
But she don't care and I don't care,  If we get back at all.
 
Chorus:
'Cause when I'm Pad - dl - in' Ma - de - lin' Home,
Gee! when I'm Pad - dl - in' Ma - de - lin' Home.
First I drift with the tide,  Then pull for the shore,
I hug her and kiss her and pad - dle some more.
Then I keep Pad - dl - in' Ma - de - lin' Home,
Un - til I find a spot where we're a - lone.
Oh! she nev - er says 'no',  So I kiss her and go,
Pad - dl - in' Ma - de - lin',  Sweet sweet Ma - de - lin',
Pad - dl - in' Ma - de - lin' Home.
