Madeleine was a pretty little girl, why she didn't even hit sixteen All the boys in the neighbourhood took advantage of the little girl's dream Now they may try to hide it, but you just can't justify it They used her up and crushed the seeds of a flower that was never meant to be She needed love they gave her lies The promise of a paradise Now there's nothing left for Madeleine to sanctify
Stuck in the middle can't solve the riddle on the outside Rockin' the cradle sure could be fatal on the outside Stuck in the middle can't solve the riddle on the outside Rockin' the cradle sure could be fatal on the outside
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah Such a shame, why she didn't last long, now who take the blame for that All the noise in the neighbourhood, they say that Madeleine's getting fat They may try to fight it, but you just can't justify it They used her up and crushed the seeds of a flower that was never meant to be She gave the love she had, but then Nobody gave it back again Madeleine tried so hard to understand
Stuck in the middle....
Oh yeah x 4 What's the use of chasin' ghosts of men where responsibility comes cheap They came with no shame they came with seedy bar room seduction they seep But who weeps for Madeleine but for her own mother Mother Earth gave birth to mankind, mankind gave nothing in return Madeleine was virgin clad, knew no betterm Madeleine's beed had Easy target, easy game, nobody there to take the blame Body of a women, no more than a child Nevertheless, hormones run wild She needed live they have her lies The promise of a paradise Nothing left for Madeleine to sanctify
