Oscar was an angel and he used to walk the streets
He was a local fixture like a cop out on a beat
And more than that, no one seemed to know
Oscar was a walker, at least four miles twice a day
And I had no idea where he'd heard the things, he'd say
It was a happy song, sung slightly out of tune
And he'd say, "Everyone will die and go to heaven
What you are in this world don't count for nothin'
But we will all be angels some day"
Well I worked at the Rial to, I sold tickets at the door
And he'd pay to see some movie that he'd seen ten times before
And he'd watch five minutes, then he'd come and talk to me
And he'd say, "Everyone will die and go to heaven
What you are in this world don't count for nothin'
But we will all be angels some day"
Well it's going on ten years now since I left my home town
I looked out for Oscar, he was nowhere to be found
And he died, before they had time to forget him
Now I'm not about to argue, Oscar's train had jumped the tracks
Oscar never said a word about me behind my back
Well, that bone, makes him the better man
And he'd say, "Everyone will die and go to heaven
What you are in this world don't count for nothin'
But we will all be angels some day"
Ya, we will all be angels someday
