Lyrics THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME PRAYING.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME SAYING,
PLEASE SEND ME
SOMEONE TO LOVE,
SEND THE ONE
I'M THINKING OF,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
WHEN THEY HEARD ME CRYING.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
THERE'S NO DENYING.
THEY SENT ONE
WITH LOVELY CHARMS,
ONE WHO REALLY
THRILLS MY ARMS,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.

I SEARCHED EV'RYWHERE
JUST TO FIND SOMEONE
WHO CARES.
THEY CAME DOWN
TO INTERRUPT
JUST AS I
HAD GIVEN UP.

THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
AND BROUGHT YOU NEAR ME.
THE ANGELS LISTENED IN,
I LOVE THEM DEARLY.
THEY GAVE ME
THE WIDE WORLD
WRAPPED UP
IN ONE LITTLE GIRL,
MY DARLING,
THE ANGELS SENT YOU.

Lyrics YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL;
THE ONLY ONE FOR ME
IN ALL THE WORLD.

WHEN I SAW YOU WALKIN'
DOWN THE STREET,
I KNEW THAT YOU AND I
WOULD HAVE TO MEET,
I DECIDED RIGHT THEN
AND THERE,
I HAD TO FIND A WAY
TO MAKE YOU CARE.
YOU LIT MY HEART
WHEN YOU SAID HELLO,
AND RIGHT AWAY
I FELT THE LOVE BUG GLOW,
WOW,
HOW LUCKY I WOULD BE,
IF YOU FELT THE SAME WAY
ABOUT ME.

YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL;
THE ONLY ONE FOR ME
IN ALL THE WORLD.

A MODEL LIKE YOU,
(OH, YEAH.)
OOH, WHAT WE COULD DO,
(OH, YEAH.)
A PERFECT TWENTY TWO,
(OH, YEAH.)
YOU'RE THE ANSWER
TO MY DREAMS COME TRUE;
HEAVEN PICKED YOU,
MISS UNIVERSE,
THE ANGELS BROUGHT YOU
RIGHT DOWN TO EARTH.
CUPID SHOT HIS ARROW
IN OUR HEARTS
AND GAVE OUR LOVE AFFAIR
A PERFECT START.

YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL,
YOU'RE MY MODEL GIRL;
THE ONLY ONE FOR ME
IN ALL THE WORLD.

Lyrics SIX NIGHTS A WEEK
I LONG FOR YOU
AND THEN
ON SATURDAY NIGHT
I HOLD YOU
IN MY ARMS AGAIN.
I LOVE YOU SO
BUT I'M A FOOL
IT SEEMS,
'CAUSE SIX NIGHTS A WEEK
I SEE YOU
ONLY IN MY DREAMS.
I WANT TO HOLD YOU
EV'RY NIGHT
BUT YOU WON'T GIVE ME
A CHANCE,
I HAVE TO WAIT
TO HOLD YOU TIGHT
UNTIL THE NEXT
SATURDAY DANCE.
WHY MUST WE SPEND
SIX NIGHTS A WEEK APART
WHEN NIGHT AFTER NIGHT
I'D LOVE TO HOLD YOU
TO MY HEART.

Lyrics STEP BY STEP
I FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU,
STEP BY STEP
IT WASN'T HARD TO DO.
KISS BY KISS
AND HAND IN HAND,
THAT'S THE WAY
IT ALL BEGAN;
SOON WE FOUND
THE PERFECT PLAN
FOR LOVE.
SIDE BY SIDE
WE TOOK
A LOVER'S WALK,
AND WORD BY WORD
WE HAD
A LOVER'S TALK.
ONE WORD
LED TO ANOTHER
AND THEN
IN NO TIME
WE WERE UP TO TEN;
MY HEART KNEW
IT WAS GONNA END
IN LOVE.

FIRST STEP -
A SWEET HELLO.
SECOND STEP -
MY HEART'S AGLOW.
THIRD STEP -
WE HAD A DATE.
FOURTH STEP -
STAYED OUT LATE.
FIFTH STEP -
I WALKED YOU HOME.
SIXTH STEP -
WE'RE ALL ALONE.
SEVENTH STEP -
WE TOOK A CHANCE;
ONE KISS
AND TRUE ROMANCE.

STEP BY STEP
WE CLIMBED
TO HEAVEN'S DOOR,
STEP BY STEP
EACH THRILL
INVITED MORE.
THEN YOU PROMISED
FAITHFULLY
ALL YOUR LOVE
BELONGED TO ME;
NOW I KNOW
WE'LL ALWAYS BE
IN LOVE.

Lyrics CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
OOH,
CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
CALLIN' ALL ANGELS,
OOH.

THERE'S TROUBLE IN PARADISE,
MY LOVE'S TAKIN' WING,
THERE'S TROUBLE IN PARADISE.
THE BIRDS NO LONGER SING.
SOME DEVIL TOLD MY ANGEL
A LOT OF LIES,
AND NOW MY TEARS ARE FALLIN'
LIKE RAINDROPS FROM THE SKY.
THERE'S TROUBLE IN PARADISE,
THE STARS NO LONGER SHINE,
THERE'S TROUBLE IN PARADISE,
'CAUSE SHE'S NO LONGER MINE.
THAT DEVIL TOLD MY ANGEL
I'VE BEEN UNTRUE,
WON'T SOMEBODY HELP ME,
PLEASE,
TELL ME WHAT TO DO.

MISTER MOON,
MISTER SUN,
TELL HER
SHE'S THE ONLY ONE.
GUIDE HER
WITH YOUR LOVELY LIGHT
BACK INTO MY ARMS TONIGHT.

THERE'S TROUBLE IN PARADISE
AND HEAVEN'S NOT THE SAME,
THE ANGELS SIT AND CRY,
THEY SAY IT'S A SHAME.
THEY'D LIKE OUR LOVE TO BE
JUST LIKE BEFORE,
THEN THE TROUBLE IN PARADISE
WILL BE NO MORE.

Lyrics A YEAR AGO TONIGHT
YOU WERE SIXTEEN,
THE SWEETEST
TEENAGE QUEEN
I'VE EVER SEEN.
A YEAR AGO TONIGHT
I LET YOU KNOW
THAT SIXTEEN CANDLES
IN MY HEART WOULD GLOW.
WHEN YOU MADE YOUR WISH,
DEAR,
I WAS WISHIN' TOO
THAT I'D BE SAYIN',
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
YOUR WHOLE LIFE THROUGH.
A YEAR AGO TONIGHT
I KISSED YOU DEAR,
AND TOLD YOU
I'D BE YOURS
THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
NOW FATHER TIME
HAS PROVEN WE WERE RIGHT;
TRUE LOVE WAS BORN
A YEAR AGO TONIGHT.
