lyrics

Getting a refectory breakfast
Laghing in the midday sun
Kawazaki Z9OO
Two-up over the ton
Visits in the winter vacation
Vino in the afternoon
Long term away on location
Letters from the Venice lagoon

Hey ho baby you're an angel
Choking on a cheap cigar
Red head lecherous angel
Propping up the Union bar

All night parties with Charlie
Swimming in the middle of May
Eyeing up the rival bikers
Hanging out at Mac's Cafe
Stoned cold over in Cromer
Rolling up a last resort
Kissing at the Saturday disco
Riot on the studio floor

Hey ho baby you're an angel
Cutting up a couple of cars
Red head lecherous angel
Propping up the Union bar

I must have been crazy to end it
I must have been out of my brain
I felt he was getting dependent
So I said I'd never see him again
Now I miss him when I listen to a jukebox
I miss him when I'm having a shave
I miss him in the middle of the morning
I miss him at the end of the day

Hey ho baby you're an angel
I'm missing you wherever you are
Red head lecherous angel
Propping up the Union bar

Hey ho baby you're an angel
Choking on a cheap cigar
Red head lecherous angel
I miss you, wherever you are
