The Angel of Death came to David's room
The Angel of Death came to David's room
The Angel of Death came to David's room
He said, "Friend, it's time to go"'

David:
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
Angel, no, I think you've come too soon
It's not my time to go

Angel:
Sorry friend, now put your hand in mine
I'm sorry friend, now put your hand in mine
David:
But good Angel, don't I get a warning sign
Before it's my time to go?

Angel:
Come now David, where's your Grandma gone?
Come now David, where's your Grandpa gone?
Come now David, where's your Grandma gone?
Their time came to go

David:
But I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
I slew Goliath with the sling and stone
It's not my time to go

Angel:
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
He'll be waiting for you when we get back home
It's time, it's time to go

Come now David, where's your Momma gone?
Come now David, where've your Uncles gone?
Come now David, where've your Aunts all gone?
Their time came to go

David:
Can I tell Solomon the things I've learned?
Can I tell Solomon the things I've learned?

Angel:
I'm sorry, friend, that's none of my concern
It's time, it's time to go

Come now David where's Uriah gone?
Stranded on the battlefield, the troops withdrawn
Come now David, where's Uriah gone?
His time came to go

Come now David, where's Bathsheba gone?
And where've your binoculars and rooftops gone?
And the unexpected Baby-from-the-bath-night gone?
Their time came to go

Come now David, where is everybody goin'? (x7)
