Hey you upon this ship of fools
I have found you bending your own rules
Thank you I don't mind if I do
Dream a while of the lovin' that we knew
There was such a flaming time
I never will forget
It was all so easy then
This is my one regret

Hey you my angel in blue
Mother Nature saved her best for you
Green grow the lilacs on the wall
Heaven help them, catch them as they fall

Hey you angel in disguise
What is your angle what is your surprise
Hey you fever that is mine
What is your game plan what is your design

Reality brings mystery
And ne'er the twain shall meet
And all of my wild horses
Cannot pull you off your feet

Hey you angel on my mind
All around me til the end of time
Thank you I don't mind if I do
Dream a while of the lovin' that we knew

There was such a flaming time
I never will forget
It was all so easy then
This is my one regret

Hey you my angel in blue
I'm entangled tell me what to do
Green grow the lilacs on the wall
Heaven help them catch them as they fall
