Madelin loved her mandolin
she played it all day long.
From early morning til late at night
she played her lovely song.
Wether it be a mandolin concerto
or a lively country tune,
Madelin played to her hearts content
from January to June.
Once July came rolling in
she'd play her music to the crowd
and everyone would sit in awe and wonder
til she was done and then they wow'd.
The people loved her music
and she would play it all
but bluegrass tunes where her favorite
cause everyone would have a ball.
In December she took a break
for Christmas time was near
but on Christmas day she'd play at church
for a baby boy, oh so dear.
Yes, Madelin loved her mandolin
she played it til she died
but the mandolin lives on with her son
who plays it far and wide.
