Got a date with an angel Got to meet her at seven Got a date with an angel And I'm on my way to heaven No one else could be sweeter Looks divine when I meet her Feel as proud as Saint Peter And I'm on my way to heaven Soon I'll hear the bells ring out And the choir will sing out When the pearly gates swing out She'll becon to me I've been waiting a lifetime For this evening at seven Got a date with an angel And I'm on my way to heaven NB: The Ray Noble/Al Bowlly recording has an humourous spoken introduction, as follows: (Tapping Sound) Deep Voice: Hello Al Bowlly: That Saint Peter? Deep Voice: What the devil do you want? Al Bowlly: I got a date with an angel Deep Voice: Come right in Al Bowlly: Come on then, flap your wings ++++++++++ As recorded by SKINNAY ENNIS with Hal Kemp & His Orch.: (Climbing up the ladder of love) (To find the one who'll wait for me) Got a date with an angel Got to meet her at seven Got a date with an angel And I'm on my way to heaven She's so lovely beside me And whatever betide me Got an angel to guide me So I'm on my way to heaven Soon I'll hear the bells ring out And the choir will sing out When the pearly gates swing out Ah, she'll becon to me I've been waiting a lifetime For this evening at seven Got a date with an angel And I'm on my way to heaven (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
