  • Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
    Shorty, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Girl, you're my friend when I'm in need, lady

    Life is one big party when you're still young
    But who's gonna have your back when it's all done
    It's all good when you're little, you have pure fun
    Can't be a fool, son, what about the long run
    Looking back Shorty always mention
    Said me not giving her much attention
    She was there through my incarceration
    I wanna show the nation my appreciation

    Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
    Shorty, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Girl, you're my friend when I'm in need, lady

    You're a queen and so you should be treated
    Though you never get the lovin' that you needed
    Could have left, but I called and you heeded
    Begged and I pleaded, mission completed
    Mama said that I and I dissed the program
    Not the type to mess around with her emotion
    But the feeling that I have for you is so strong
    Been together so long and this could never be wrong

    Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
    Shorty, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Girl, you're my friend when I'm in need, lady

    Girl, in spite of my behavior, said I'm your savior
    (You must be sent from up above)
    And you appear to me so tender, say girl I surrender
    (Thanks for giving me your love)

    Girl, in spite of my behavior, well, you are my savior
    (You must be sent from up above)
    And you appear to me so tender, well, girl I surrender
    (Said thanks for giving me your love)

    Now life is one big party when you're still young
    And who's gonna have your back when it's all done
    It's all good when you're little, you have pure fun
    Can't be a fool, son, what about the long run
    Looking back Shorty always mention
    Said me not giving her much attention
    She was there through my incarceration
    I wanna show the nation my appreciation

    Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
    Shorty, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Girl, you're my friend when I'm in need, lady

    Girl, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Closer than my peeps you are to me, baby
    Shorty, you're my angel, you're my darling angel
    Girl, you're my friend when I'm in need, lady Writer/s: Ahmet Ertegun, Chip Taylor, Eddie Tex Curtis, Steve Miller

  • Fabrice from Port Charlotte, FlI would love to know the name of that light-skinned lady,or the one in red.
  • Jeremy from Pittsburgh, PaActually, he didn't "steal" anything from Steve Miller. He sampled it... with permission from Steve Miller. And as stated above it also sampled "Angel of the Morning." So he would've had to put the beat together. He just happened to do so before the lyrics were added.
  • Noah from New York, Ny"Shaggy put the beat together before adding lyrics to this"
    Shaggy didn't put any beat together...he stole it from Steve Miller's the Joker. He even stole the lead guitar parts from it.
