A Friday in December, just an ordinary day for me
Till my mama called me, said, "Turn on your TV"
I just sat there in silence, in disbelief, in tears
Those little souls that only been here for six or seven years
Before they flew away
Twenty little angels

I cussed out loud in anger, and I hurt for those moms and dads
I know we're not supposed to question God, but I even did some of that
How could someone so heaven sent, so innocent and frail
Wind up in the middle of someone else's hell
Before they flew away
Twenty little angels

I know in heaven tonight,
There's baseballs flying over fences
High in the sky
Finger paintings hangin' on fridges
In God's holy light
Ballerinas blowing kisses
Filling Heaven with love

I can almost see
A polka dotted princess
Serving hot tea
To the grandpa she hadn't met yet
I can hear them sing
At the top of their lungs
To God up above

I'm heart broke, but faithful
There's twenty little angels
Watching over us

There's a touchdown on a Friday night that'll never be thrown
There's a pink prom dress that fits just right that'll never be tried on
There's a dirty Ford on a country road that'll never see their first kiss
But as much as we're gonna miss 'em, there ain't much they're gonna miss
Since they flew away
Twenty little angels

I know in heaven tonight,
With wings and two teeth missin'
High in the sky
They're somewhere up there listenin'
With a watchful eye
They're babysittin'
Us from up above

I know they can see
Everybody cryin'
They're so at ease
While we're slowly dyin'
We just want to be
Right there beside 'em
But until that day comes

I'm heart broke, but faithful
There's twenty little angels
Watching over us

Oh, I can't hear 'em prayin'
And I can't see 'em fly
But every time the sun comes breakin' through the sky

I'm heart broke, but faithful
There's twenty little angels
Watchin' over us

I'm heartbroke, but faithful
There's twenty little angels
Watchin' over us

There's twenty little angels watching over you.
