You're like a Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of town
Just want to see the pictures, tell your man, "Turn down the sound"
You're acting wise but aren't you afraid, 'round here you might get blown away
Like a Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of town

Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of the tracks
I saw you ask the poor kid, to take the time to show you back
Don't burn your wings, flying too high
Around here you just might end up dying
Like a Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of town
Slumming Angel, don't you know your way around?

Straight out of heaven, don't you know where you stand?
Take off those rose-colored glasses, this is no wonderland

You're like a Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of the tracks
Saw you ask the poor boy, to take the time to show you back
Go home to your daddy, where you ought to go
Things have changed around here, don't you know

You're like a Slumming Angel, lost on the wrong side of town
Slumming Angel, let me show you around
