1.
(bass B throughout)
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


Chorus:
(Repeating three-chord cycle: AEB)
A   E           B        A             E  B               A
  Why did they send her over anyone else?  how should I react?

        E           B          A      E            B         A
these things happen  to other people - they don't happen at all in fact


|: E                     B
When you're following an angel

                  A                      C#m /   B :|
does it mean you have to throw your body off a building
somewhere they're meeting on a pinhead
calling you an angel calling you the nicest things

|: B                  A
I heard they have a space program

           E                     B :|
when they sing you can't hear - there's no air
sometimes I think I kinda like that and
other times I think I'm already there


2.
Gonna ask for my admission
gonna speak to the man in charge
the secretary says he's on another line -
can I hold for a long long time?

I found out she's an angel
I don't think she knows I know
I'm worried that something might happen to me
if anyone ever finds out

(Chorus)


E                        B
When you're following an angel does it mean you

 A                      C#m /   B
have to throw your body off a building

E                               B
somewhere they're meeting on a pinhead

               A                     C#m / B  E
calling you an angel calling you the nicest things
