Song Lyrics

Farewell, Angelina

The bells of the crown

Are being stolen by bandits

I must follow the sound.

The triangle tingles

and the trumpets play slow.

Farewell, Angelina

the sky is on fire

and I must go.

There`s no need for anger

There`s no need for blame.

There`s nothing to prove

Everything`s still the same.

Just a table standing empty

by the edge of the sea means

Farewell, Angelina

the sky is trembling

and I must leave.

The jack and the queen

have forsake the courtyard.

Fifty-two gypsies

now file past the guards

In the space where the deuce

and the ace once ran wild

Farewell, Angelina

the sky is falling

I`ll see you in a while.

See the cross-eyed pirates sitting

perched in the sun

shooting tin cans

with a sawed-off shotgun.

And the neighobrs they clap

and they cheer with each blast.

Farewell, Angelina

the sky`s changing color

and I must leave fast

King Kong, little elves

on the rooftops they dance

Valentino-type tangos

while the makeup man`s hands

shut the eyes of the dead

not to embarrass anyone.

But Farewell, Angelina

the sky`s embarrassed

and I must be gone.

The machine guns are roaring

the puppets heave rocks

and fiends nail time bombs

to the hands of the clocks.

Call me any name you like

I will never deny it,

But Farewell, Angelina

the sky is erupting

I must go where it`s quiet.
