Sweet Angeline

Album: Brain Capers (1971)
  • (ian hunter)

    Oh angeline, I love you, your mouth is like a sting
    And when I close my eyes each night, I often hear you sing
    Imagination's hidden book, you wrote it on the wing
    And when I vowed to comfort you, well you swallowed everything

    Angeline, oh my angeline
    My sweet angeline - you have rendered me unseen
    I would cry a million smiles for my indian city queen

    Well your body it is broken in so many different ways
    And when I stoop to find your head, well it disappeared in haze.
    Your blood flows like the finest juice - the kiss of burgundy
    And where it comes from no one knows, but where it's going I can't see

    Angeline, oh my angeline
    My sweet angeline - (y'know) you have rendered me unseen
    I would cry a million smiles for my indian city queen

    Angeline, oh my angeline
    You little angeline - you have rendered me unseen
    I would cry a million smiles for my indian city queen

    And your crystal-coloured cardboard bins - attack me from the paint
    And I think that I am getting lost among the swollen states
    Oh rescue me or bury me, for I care not what you do
    There is just one thing that I want to say am I really you

    Angeline, oh my angeline
    My sweet angeline - you have rendered me unseen
    I would cry a million smiles for my indian city queen
