WANT TO BE AN ANGEL

1993 © by Anna Marie Isgro


The only man in my life is gone.

And Mama's crying; what did I do wrong?

Oh so wrong?

The only man in my life:  Daddy is gone.


Oh God! You know, how will I be when I'm grown?

Will my man leave my children and me alone.

Will I be all alone?


I want to be an Angel 'cause they don't cry.

I want to be an Angel and soar through the sky.

Oh to fly so high!

I want to be an Angel, Lord, tonight.


Got my toys and my dolls to comfort me.

But where's my Daddy to put me on his knees.

Where is he?

The only man in my life:  Daddy is gone.


For a ten-year-old, God, this is way too deep for me.

Where's my daddy?  Why ain't he with me?

Why ain't he with me?


I want to be an angel 'cause they don't cry.

I want to be an angel and soar through the sky!

Oh to fly so high!

I want to be an angel, Lord, tonight.


Give me my wings to fly!

Oh to fly so high!

I want to be an angel, Lord, tonight.


I want to be an angel, Lord, tonight.
