Sing a song of Madeleine Mary
A tune that all can carry
Burly says if we don't sing
Then we won't have anything

All the boys on ship set sail
And the mate was Madeleine Mary
When her eyes did fill with tears
It was extraordinary

It was extraordinary
For we, none of us could see it
For she kept herself below
And all her feelings private

Sing a song of Madeleine Mary
A tune that all can carry
Burly says if we don't sing
Then we won't have anything

None of us could get a glimpse
But all of us did want it
At night above our sleeping heads
Our sleeping dreams were haunted

So now my kids you'd like to hear
Of one who reached and got her
Well, if there was, well, I think
He sleeps beneath the water

Sing a song of Madeleine Mary
A tune that all can carry
Burly says if we don't sing
Then we won't have anything
