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 her 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 takes 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 her 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 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
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 a virgin clad, knew no better, Madeleine's been had
Easy target, easy game, nobody's here to take the blame
Nevertheless, hormones run wild She needed love they gave her lies
The promise of a paradise
Nothing left for Madeleine to sanctify
