ANGIE BABY
written by Alan O'Day

You live your life in the songs you hear o the rock and roll radio
And when a young girl doesn't have any friends, that's a really nice place to go
Folks hoping you'd turn out cool
But they had to take you outta school
You're a little touched, you know, Angie Baby

Lovers appear in your room each night and they whirl you `cross the floor
But they always seem to fade away when your daddy taps on your door
"Angie girl, are you all right
Tell the radio good-night"
All alone once more, Angie Baby

Angie Baby
You're a special lady
Living in a world of make-believe
Well, maybe...

Stopping at her house is a neighbor boy with evil on his mind
'Cause he's been peeking in Angie's room at night through her window blind
"I see your folks have gone away
Would you dance with me today?
I'll show you how to have a good time, Angie Baby"

When he walks in her room, he feels confused like he walked into a play
And the music's so loud it spins him around `til his soul has lost its way

And as she turns the volume down
He's getting smaller with the sound
It seems to pull him off the ground
Toward the radio he's bound
Never to be found...

The headlines read that a boy disappeared and everyone thinks he died
'Cept a crazy girl with a secret lover who keeps her satisfied
It's so nice to be insane
No one asks you to explain
Radio by your side, Angie Baby

Angie Baby
You're a special lady
Living in a world of make-believe
Well, maybe...
Well, maybe...
