Watching the slow boats in the late afternoon
Out on the edge of the wharf
Madelaine sighs as life passes by
And we know we don't need to talk

I've never seen so many shades of blue
Stretch from the beach to the sky
We've got our toes in that cool, cool sea
And the slow boats glide on by

Watching the slow boats go by
Watching the slow boats go by
Slow down, slow down
Look at them slow boats glide
Look at them slow boats glide

I won't be no runner in this life's race
Carrying some other man's torch
Working and fretting ain't the life for me
I'm out on the old boardwalk

Just for a while I'd forgot how to smile
'Cos I listened to too many lies
Now Madelaine and me, we're down by the sea
And the slow boats glide on by
