Lyrics Madeline – Kiki Rockwell

Madeline, tell me at what time do you set sail
There’s no one in this town left that could hold me
Already packed my bags could leave today

Girl at the front of the line
I’m sorry but I cannot let you sign
Your arms are far too skinny and you’d never
Last a single day upon my ship

The open sea is no place for a lady
There’s reasons that they say we cannot board
Before you say, But Maddie, you’re a lady, too!
I’ve long ago denounced that wretched word

Madeline, tell me what time does your posse ride
Cos I’ve been chopping wood
And starting fist fights, surely this time let me at your side

Girl at the front of the line
I’m sorry but I cannot let you sign
You’ve only tried a pony at the school fair
You wouldn’t last a day amongst my men

The canyon is just no place for a lady
There’s reasons that they say we shouldn’t ride
Before you say, But Maddy, you’re a lady too
I’ve long ago denounced that wretched word

Madeline, yes I might scream and sing and sob and dance
But I can swing a sword just like a soldier
So Maddie won’t you give me just one chance

Girl at the front of the line
You’ll work twice as hard for half the pay
But if you can deflect their filthy comments
One day you shall rise up and take my place

The battle field is no place for a lady
So no one would expect to see you there
And if you use this trick to your advantage, girl
You’ll cut them to their knees as if in prayer…
