I’ve loved this song since it first came out.

Girl, you’re looking fine tonight
And every guy has got you in his sight
What you’re doing with a clown like me
Is surely one of life’s little mysteriesSo tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Well, I’m the guy who never learned to dance
Never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough
I could look but I could never touchSo tonight I’ll ask, the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?Don’t anyone wake me
If it’s just a dream
Cause she’s the best thing
Ever happened to me

But this girl you see
She’s leavin’ here with me tonight

There’s just one more thing that I need to know
If this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be somethin’ only you can see
Cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, awww

    • Thanks, Bill (ES). It is a great song, and I like the video, too. I’d thought of Pretty Little Angel Eyes, too, at first. Then I remembered this one. There are so many songs with angel as the subject. Next week we’re doing devil – haha! 🙂
