Submit Corrections Cancel

Well there's a Peter Pan moon, shepherd's delight
I got the dragon at noon, yes, and I won the fight
Now, I want my reward in heaven tonight
Just like you promised

Angel of mercy you'll come to no harm
Angel of mercy, there's no need for alarm
The knight in his armour wants a night in your arms
You know, he's honest

Angel of mercy, angel delight
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
And if I give up my sword
Won't you give me the right, sweet angel?

Well, now it's too late for talkin', we could talk later on
Let the saxophone play us till the chorus of dawn
All I need is a little oblivion, you don't need protection

Well, now, here come the moonlight, down on your bed
Angel of mercy, let your heart rule your head
I don't want your money, I want you instead
Don't need rejection, yeah

Angel of mercy, angel delight
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
And if I give up my sword, won't you give me the right?
Angel of mercy, give me heaven tonight

Well, if you cross your heart and spit
And swear upon the grave of your mother
You gotta get into it
You got to tell me that I'm more than your lover

Yeah, angel of mercy, angel delight
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
And if I give up my sword, won't you give me the right?
Angel of mercy, give me heaven tonight

Yeah, angel of mercy, angel delight
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
And if I give up my sword, won't you give me the right?
Angel of mercy, give me heaven tonight

Ah, angel of mercy, angel delight
Give me my reward in heaven tonight
And if I give up my sword, won't you give me the right?
Angel of mercy, give me heaven tonight

Yeah, angel of mercy
You got me, baby
Oh, angel of mercy
