Well, I talked about the part they’ve played in my life before.  On this, the 35th anniversary of a boy named Danial having his name misspelled on his birth certificate, this one is speaking to me:

I met someone at the dog show
She was holding my left arm
But everyone was acting normal so I tried to look nonchalant.
We both said, I really love you,
The shriners loaned us cars
We raced up and down the sidewalk twenty thousand million times

Why did they send her over anyone else?
How should I react? these things happen to other people
They dont happen at all, in fact

When youre following an angel
Does it mean you have to throw your body off a building?
Somewhere theyre meeting on a pinhead
Calling you an angel, calling you the nicest things
I heard they had a space program
When they sing you cant hear, theres no air
Sometimes I think I kind of like that and
Other times I think Im already there

Gonna ask for my admission
Gonna speak to the man in charge
The secretary says hes on another line,
Can I hold for a long, long time?
I found out shes an angel
I dont think she knows I know
Im worried that something might happen to me
If anyone ever finds out

Why, why did they send her over anyone else?
How should I react? these things happen to other people
They dont happen at all

When youre following an angel
Does it mean you have to throw your body off a building?
Somewhere theyre meeting on a pinhead
Calling you an angel, calling you the nicest things
I heard they had a space program
When they sing you cant hear, theres no air
Sometimes I think I kind of like that and
Other times I think Im already there

When youre following an angel
Does it mean you have to throw your body off a building?
Somewhere theyre meeting on a pinhead
Calling you an angel, calling you the nicest things

The girls I’ve found myself dating on past Halloweens have all laughed it off, but I know that when I find the one who wants to dress as Captain and Tennille with me, I’ve met Mrs. Right.

Love, love will keep us together;
Think of me babe whenever
Some sweet talking girl comes along singing a song —
Don’t mess around, you got to be strong,Just Stop, ’cause I really love you,
Stop, I’ll be thinking of you —
Look in my heart and let love keep us together.

You, you belong to me now,
Ain’t gonna set you free now;
When those girls start hanging around, talking me down,
Hear with your heart and you won’t hear a sound.

Just stop, ’cause I really love you; stop, I’ll be thinking of you —
Look in my heart and let love keep us together, whatever.

Young and beautiful someday your looks will be gone;
When the others turn you off who’ll be turning you on?
I will, I will, I will

I will be there to share forever;
Love will keep us together.
Said it before and I’ll say it again, while others pretend,
I need you now and I’ll need you then.

Stop, ’cause I really love you; stop, I’ll be thinking of you —
Look in my heart and let love keep us together, whatever.
I will, I will, I will

Stop, ’cause I really love you; stop, I’ll be thinking of you —
Look in my heart and let love keep us together, whatever.
I will, I will, I will, I will.
