I got a call the other day It was my sister Carolyn, saying "Aretha, come by when you can I've got something that I wanna say" And when I got there, she said "You know rather than go through a long drawn out thing I think the melody on the box will help me explain"
Gotta find me an angel To fly away with me Gotta find me an angel Ooh and set me free
My heart is without a home I don't want to be alone I gotta find me an angel In my life, in my life Too long have I loved So unattached within So much that I know That I need somebody so So I'll just go on Hoping that I find me someone Gotta find me an angel In my life, in my life
I know there must be someone Somewhere for me Oh, I've lived too long Without the love of someone And there's no misery Oh oh, like the misery I feel in me
Gotta find me an angel In my life (You'll meet him, now don't you worry) In my life (Keep looking and just keep cooking) In my life (He'll be there, now don't you worry) In my life

There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
