Well there's a Peter Pan moon shepherd's delight
Now I want my reward in heaven tonight, just like you promised
Angel of Mercy, there's no need for alarm
You know he's honest
Angel of Mercy, angel delight, give me my reward in heaven tonight
Sweet angel
Well now it's too late for talking we can talk later on
All I need is a little oblivion, you don't need protection
Angel of mercy let your heart rule your head
Don't need rejection yeah
Angel of Mercy, angel delight, give me my reward in heaven tonight
Angel of Mercy give me heaven tonight
And spit and swear upon the grave of your mother

Yeah Angel of Mercy angel delight
And if I give up my sword, won't you give me the right
