Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 29/04/2018 – Angel

SLSWhy on earth my thoughts immediately turned to the song I’ve chosen is totally beyond comprehension – you’ll see what I mean!

Helen’s theme this week is “angel”, and there are a myriad of choices, many of which are brilliant songs. I had to go and choose this one, by someone you have probably never, ever heard of. Even if you have heard of the singer you have probably forgotten him long ago. To be fair to Herbert Buckingham Khaury, he was a talented musician and commercially successful, but he was, most definitely, DIFFERENT!

The song is Earth Angel, the singer is Tiny Tim. This recording is from January 11th 1970. Tiny Tim, accompanied by the all-girl band Enchanted Forest, performed “Earth Angel” on the CBS-TV program ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’.  We even have a bonus of Spanish sub titles so we are getting a real bargain!

(oh, oh, oh, oh, wah-ah-ah, oh, oh, oh, oh

Earth angel, earth angel
Will you be mine?
My darling dear
Love you all the time
I’m just a fool
A fool in love with you

Earth angel, earth angel
The one I adore
Love you forever and ever more
I’m just a fool
A fool in love with you

I fell for you and I knew
The vision of your love-loveliness
I hoped and I pray that someday
I’ll be the vision of your hap-happiness oh, oh, oh, OH!

Earth angel, earth angel
Please be mine
My darling dear
Love you all the time
I’m just a fool
A fool in love with you-ou-ou

I fell for you and I knew
The vision of your loveliness
I hope and pray that someday
That I’ll be the vision of your happiness

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh , oh, oh, oh

Earth angel, earth angel
Please be mine
My darling dear
Love you all the time
I’m just a fool
A fool in love with you-ou (you, you, you)

  1. Ha ha! I remember the song well, but I agree, what were you thinking about choosing this version? He looks just like the comedian whose name I forget, you know the Geordie one.
    Oh,I’m a great help aren’t I? you know who I mean he’s often on Have I got news for you.

    Apologies to your non-British readers, my comments are likely to be understood only in the UK.

  2. haha! Thanks for the laugh. I’ve been a fan of Tiny Tim for a long time, but haven’t come across this one before. I’ve heard the song by someone else, though. And…with the Spanish subtitles, this video was great! 🙂
