Adeline

  • Oh, my Adeline, ooh
    Down in Tasmania
    Where the devil's jaws are far too weak
    To tear you away

    Ooh, I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    Oh, my Adeline
    I watch your morning swim again
    Oh, cold from the blue sky
    Strokes from passing mopeds
    My sweet Adeline

    Ooh, I wish you well (my Adeline)
    I wish you well
    I wish you well (my Adeline)
    I wish you well

    And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
    On the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming
    Sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of Royal Canal

    Swim
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim on

    And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
    On the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming
    Sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of Royal Canal

    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well Writer/s: JOE NEWMAN, GUS UNGER-HAMILTON, THOM SONNY GREEN, HANS ZIMMER
