Lyrics

Angeline

Written By: Stewart Skeate

She was standing on the corner begging to be seen
I asked my friend who is that
He said that's just Angeline
I had to stare then I took his dare
I walked across the street
I said how do you do, my name is Stu
She said I'm just Angeline

Sweet Angeline, Hey baby you're my queen
Sweet Angeline, you're a walking talking dream

She took my hand yes I was her man
We walked on down the street
She loved me hard in my backyard and then I fell asleep
When I awoke she'd left a note, pinned to my bluejeans
It said that was nice, see you tonight
It was signed just Angeline

Sweet Angeline, hey baby you're my queen
Sweet Angeline, you're a walking talking dream

Well she had her fun then went on the run
My little Memphis queen
I heard she was a waitress at a Denny's in Abilene
But I saw her six months later
down in New Orleans
My friend said who is that
I just had to laugh
That's just Angeline

Sweet Angeline, hey baby you're my queen
Sweet Angeline, you're a walking talking dream

repeat
