Prefab Sprout – When The Angels lyrics

When the angels take the angel voice away
Some lower their eyes, some of us shout cheats
For cheatin' on the deal, for pullin' off the sting,
Tunin' up the harps, for dishin' out the wings
If they can dance or walk, on the head of a pin,
Don't that tell you somethin' about their skin
Hard faced, little bastards

When the angels take the angel voice away
Jealously they see the sometimes man you'd be
Must get so blase, knowin' you'll never die,
Loungin' on a cloud; polishin' the sky
The memories are blue, but borrowed for the day
They sit around ignored, till someone goes away
If they can dance or walk, on the head of a pin,
Don't that tell you something about their skin
Hard faced, little bastards

When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see the sometimes man you'd be

Instrumental

The memories are blue, but borrowed for the day
They sit around ignored, till someone goes away
For cheatin' on the deal, for pullin' off the sting,
Tunin' up the harps, for dishin' out the wings
If they can dance on, on the head of a pin
Don't that tell you ahhh! about their skin!
Hard faced, little bastards

When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see, the sometimes man you'd be
When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see, the sometimes man you'd be
When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see, the sometimes man you'd be
When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see, the sometimes man you'd be
When the angels take, the angel voice away
Jealously they see, the sometimes man you'd be

Yeah
