There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings
There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings
They say he saw the world
Through the eyes of a blue dog
(there once was a very old man
who had enormous wings)
There once was a man
Who had enormous wings
It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there
He was lyin' there
His dreams are forever (there once was a very old man)
Entangled in the mud (who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (his dreams were forever)
Tangled in the mud (entangled in the mud)
Every soul you meet (there once was a very old man)
May be a stranger (who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (he's an angel)
He must be coming for the children (He's coming for the children)
It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there
And though he'd like to sleep
The stars fall to the earth in heaps
And he's got tears in his eyes
'Cause the town is filled with so many spies
They all avert their eyes
The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there
It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
He was lyin' there
They say he saw the world
Through the eyes of a blue dog
(there once was a very old man
who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (he's an angel)
Who had enormous wings
There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings
