alt-J - Adeline Lyrics




Oh, my Adeline, ooooh
Down in Tasmania
Where the devil's jaws are far too weak
To tear you away

Ooh, I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

Oh, my Adeline
I watch your morning swim again
Oh, cold from the blue sky
Strokes from passing mopeds
My sweet Adeline

Ooh, I wish you well (my Adeline)
I wish you well
I wish you well (my Adeline)
I wish you well

And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
On the Royal Canal
My Adeline was swimming
Sweet Adeline was singing
To the tune of Royal Canal

Swim
Swim on
Swim on
Swim on
Swim
Swim on
Swim on
Swim on

And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
On the Royal Canal
My Adeline was swimming
Sweet Adeline was singing
To the tune of Royal Canal

I wish her well
I wish her well
I wish her well
I wish her well
I wish her well

  1. Angela Taylor-Olsen

    My name is Adeline and even an Adeline hates this music

  2. Keiron Kyelo

    Condolence.

  3. HAL TheBirdLady

    This is magnificent. I honestly dedicate this to the only man I've ever loved. Completely unrequited. This is a fucking symphony.

  4. Qwertz uiop

    My heart broke when I heard TWO Alt J songs (Adeline and Left Hand Free) running in the background of "Bachelor in Paradise"
    This music is way too good for that

  5. Marcos Portes Jr

    4:14 - Fill your mind with your dreams.

  15. Amadeus Franklin

    look like a dark (netflix serie) soundtrack

  16. Final MBBS student Acute to Chronic

    Yesterday a music was playing in my mind. I thought it to be the Interstellar theme by Hans Zimmer but now I realise that it was this music. This song was in my subconscious mind

  17. José Mahecha

    I need to know if this song is for Virginia Woolf. Her first name was Adeline, Adeline Virginia Woolf. Who committed suicide drowning in a river, like the Adeline of this song.

  24. Stella Dang

    Oh, my Adeline, ooh
    Down in Tasmania
    Where the devil's jaws are far too weak
    To tear you away

    Ooh, I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    Oh, my Adeline
    I watch your morning swim again
    Oh, cold from the blue sky
    Strokes from passing mopeds
    My sweet Adeline

    Ooh, I wish you well (my Adeline)
    I wish you well
    I wish you well (my Adeline)
    I wish you well

    And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
    On the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming
    Sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of Royal Canal

    Swim
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim
    Swim on
    Swim on
    Swim on

    And the auld triangle went jingle jangle
    On the Royal Canal
    My Adeline was swimming
    Sweet Adeline was singing
    To the tune of Royal Canal

    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
    I wish her well
