    Pretty little angel eyes
    Pretty little angel, pretty little angel
    Pretty little, pretty little, pretty little angel
    (Ba bom) oo oo, oo oo (ha ha ha ha)
    Oo oo, pretty, pretty, pretty little angel eyes

    Angel eyes, I really love you so
    Angel eyes, I'll never let you go
    Because I love you, my darlin' angel eyes
    (Pretty, pretty, pretty little angel eyes)

    Angel eyes, you are so good to me
    And when I'm in your arms you be so heavenly
    You know I love you, my darlin' angel eyes
    (Angel eyes, bom bom bom bom)

    I know you were sent from heaven above
    You rule my life with your wonderful love
    I know we'll be happy for eternity
    'Cause I know
    That our love is really real

    Angel eyes, I really love you so
    Angel eyes, I'll never let you go
    Because I love you, my darlin' angel eyes (angel eyes)

    Pretty little angel eyes
    Pretty little angel eyes
    Pretty little angel, pretty little angel
    Pretty little, pretty little, pretty little angel

    (Pretty, pretty, pretty)
    (Angel eyes) angel eyes, I really love you so
    Angel eyes, I'll never let you go
    Because I love you
    My darlin' angel eyes
    (Pretty, pretty, pretty little angel eyes)

    Curtis Lee, best remembered for his early Phil Spector production of "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" (#7) in 1961, died Thursday (January 8th, 2015) of cancer while visiting doctors in San Diego...
    The Yuma, Arizona native was 75. Groomed to be a teen idol after Elvis went into the Army (he had previously recorded three singles while still in his teens in Arizona as well as two more in Hollywood), Curtis was signed by Ray Peterson's Dunes Records in New York in 1960...
    However, his early recordings-- including the bubbling-under "Pledge Of Love" (#110-1961)-- made no one forget the King. Dunes pulled out all the stops for Curtis on "Angel Eyes" though, getting Tommy Boyce to write it (based on a title suggestion by Curtis), Phil to produce it (Spector had also produced Ray's version of "Corrina Corrina") and pairing him with the Halos ("Nag") for the catchy background...
    Phil also produced the follow-up, "Under The Moon Of Love" (#46-1961) but without him, Curtis was back to bubbling-under on "Just Another Fool" (#110-1962) and soon he and Dunes parted company, leaving him as just another one-hit wonder. In later years, he became a home builder in Yuma...
    May he R.I.P.
  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumI like this song very much, I have it on the cd-box of Phil Spector called "Back to Mono". Phil Spector, you are so TOP, you are and you will stay my number one 4 ever and ever. Love your songs, love you!
