Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Farewell Angelina, the bells on the crown
Are being stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound
The triangle tingles, the music plays slow
But farewell Angelina, the night is on fire and I must go

[Verse 2]
There is no use in talking and there's no need for blame
There is nothing to prove, everything still is the same
A table stands empty by the edge of the stream
But farewell Angelina, the sky is changing colors and I must leave

[Verse 3]
The jacks and the queens, they forsake the courtyard
Fifty-two gypsies now file past the guard
In the space where the deuce and the ace once ran wild
Farewell Angelina, the sky is folding, I'll see you after a while

[Verse 4]
See the cross eyed pirates sit perched in the sun
Shooting tin cans with a sawed off shot gun
And the corporals and the neighbors clap and cheer with each blast
But farewell Angelina, the sky is trembling and I must leave fast

[Verse 5]
King Kong, little elves, on the roof-tops they dance
Valentino-type tangos while the heroes clean hands
Shut the eyes of the dead, not to embarrass anyone
Farewell Angelina, the sky is flooding over and I must be gone

[Verse 6]
The camouflaged parrot, he flutters from fear
When something he doesn't know about suddenly appears
What cannot be imitated perfect must die
Farewell Angelina, the sky is flooding over and I must go where it is dry

[Verse 7]
Machine guns are roaring, the puppets heave rocks
At misunderstood visions and at the faces of clocks
Call me any name you like, I will never deny it
But farewell Angelina, the sky is erupting and I must go where it is quiet
