Oscar was an angel and he used to walk the streets
Shoutin' out some prophecy to everyone he'd meet
He was a local fixture like a cop out on a beat
Folks said he'd been shell-shocked long ago
And more than that, no one seemed to know

Oscar was a walker, at least four miles twice a day
The entire length of main street he'd be shoutin' all the way
And I had no idea where he'd heard the things, he'd say
But he was not your normal voice of doom
It was a happy song, sung slightly out of tune

And he'd say, "Everyone will die and go to heaven
And we will all be angels some day
What you are in this world don't count for nothin'
