Some other versions of "Farewell Angelina"



Farewell Angelina, the bells of the crown
Have being stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound
The triangle tingles and the trumpet play slow
Farewell Angelina, the sky is on fire and I must go

There's no need for anger, there's no need for blame
There's nothing to prove, everything's still is the same
Just a table standing empty by the edge of the sea
Farewell Angelina, the sky is trembling and I must leave

The jack and the queen have forsaked the courtyard
Fifty-two gypsies now file past the guards
In the space where the deuce and the ace once ran wild
Farewell Angelina, the sky is folding, I'll see you in a while

The machine guns are roaring and the puppets heave rocks
The fiends nail time bombs to the hands of the clocks
Call me any name you like, I will never deny it
Farewell Angelina, the sky is erupting, I must go where it's quiet
Farewell Angelina, the sky is on fire and I must go
