"Angel Band"

There was one, there were two, there were three little angels
There were four, there were five, there were six little angles.
There were sev'n, there were eight, there were nine little angels,
Ten little angels in the band.

Wasn't that a band, Sunday morning,
Sunday morning, Sunday morning?
Wasn't that a band, Sunday morning,
Sunday morning soon?

There were ten, there were nine, there were eight little angels
There were sev'n, there were six, there were five little angles.
There were four, there were three, there were two little angels,
one little angel in the band.


Wasn't that a band, Sunday morning,
Sunday morning, Sunday morning?
Wasn't that a band, Sunday morning,
Sunday morning soon?
