Got A Date With An Angel


(Jack Waller /Jos.Tunbridge / Grey / Miller)

New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

Ray Noble: Hello
Al Bowlly: That Saint Peter?
Ray Noble: What the devil do you want?
Al Bowlly: I got a date with an angel
Ray Noble: Come right in
Al Bowlly: Come on then, flap your wings

Got a date with an angel
Got to meet her at seven
Got a date with an angel
And I'm on my way to heaven

No one else could be sweeter
Looks divine when I meet her
Feel as proud as Saint Peter
And I'm on my way to heaven

Soon I'll hear the bells ring out
And the choir will sing out
When the pearly gates swing out
She'll becon to me

I've been waiting a lifetime
For this evening at seven
Got a date with an angel
And I'm on my way to heaven
