I know, that you know that
I've seen your face before
A bad dream, so mean
Rockin' me down like a slot machine
So many years, I don't know when
My dear how have you been?
The way you looked the night we met
Gets me hot breathin', oooh cold sweat

You were so shy-y-y-y
And I was so high
That I can't remember the rest
But the one thing that I'll never forget

Chorus:
You're a poison angel
Tryin' to take my wings away
Poison angel
Get down on your knees and pray

I still remember what you said
The part about me dropping dead
You sent a letter, I've read it twice
I found out you weren't so nice
But there you were, looking so cool
To this country boy in the New York groove
And there you left me in the drink
Laughing while you watched me sink

You were so shy-y-y-y
And I was so high
That I can't remember the rest
But the one thing that I'll never forget

Chorus:
You're a poison angel
Tryin' to take my wings away
Poison angel
Get down on your knees and pray

Solo

Yeah, you were some fun
But you never looked at the damage done

Chorus:
Poison angel
Tryin' to take my wings away
Poison angel
Get down on your knees and pray
Poison angel.........
