Cab Calloway – Angeline lyrics

Angeline (1937 Original 78 record 2'54]
Cab Calloway

Written by: D. Browne/Fats Waller

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Robins in the tree tops high
Soon will sing a lullaby, Angeline

Bashful little whippoorwills
Can't you hear them say "I will"

The crickets in the meadows
The dear in the woods
Know it's time for singin' in the rain
Until you make up your mind I'll try to be good babe
How long mush I wait
Can't you see my heart's a flame
Don't you know that you're to blame
Say you're mine, Angeline,

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Oh. Angeline
Sweet Angeline
Oh baby, I love ya Angeline
