Bathing Angel (A)Someone's been (E7)cutting their (A)toenails I (D)really don't know (A)who they've (D)left one there, way (A)up in the air on a (E7)carpet of midnight blue. They must have been taking a shower and it didn't all go down the drain As I look in the sky, I feel in my eye a few soft drops of rain. They've used too much talcum powder and shaken it all around those sprinkes of white all over the night are making the stars shine down. It must be a pretty young angel taking a tub up there now the day is done, in the setting sun I see a few strands of her hair. So go to sleep my darling now that the day is through there's a freshly scrubbed young angel watching over (A)you. Copyright Bert Hansell, 1996 BH Apr98
