  • Alt-J – Adeline (Relaxer Album)

    [Verse 1]
    Ooh, my Adeline, ooh
    Down in Tasmania
    Where the devil’s jaws are far too weak
    To tear you away

    [Chorus 1]
    Ooh, I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    [Verse 2]
    Ooh, my Adeline
    I watch your morning swim again
    Ooh, Kodachrome blue sky
    Strokes from patch to warm patch
    My sweet Adeline

    [Chorus 2]
    Ooh, I wish you well (My Adeline)
    I wish you well
    I wish you well (My Adeline)
    I wish you well

    [Verse 3]
    And the old triangle went jingle-jangle
    All along the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming; sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of the Royal Canal

    [Bridge]
    She’s a swim, swimmer
    Swimmer, swimmer
    Swim, swimmer
    Swimmer, swimmer

    [Verse 3]
    And the old triangle went jingle-jangle
    All along the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming; sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of the Royal Canal

    [Chorus 3]
    I wish her well (My Adeline)
    I wish her well
    I wish her well (My Adeline)
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
