Played a party last night for some old folks
They were dancing and smiling at me
'Cept this old man alone at a table
As if there's someplace that he'd rather be.

So I said, "Sir, can I play something for you.
Something special that you'd like to hear? "
When he looked up at me he was smiling
Oh, but his eyes couldn't hide the tears.

Chorus:
He said, "Play me the waltz of the angels,
And I'll close my eyes and pretend.
Play me the waltz of the angels,
So I can dance with my angel again. "

--- Instrumental ---

He said, "Yes, that's the song I remember
That's' the one that she loved the best
It was playing the night that I met her
And it was playing when we laid her to rest. "

Chorus:
"Play me the waltz of the angels,
And I'll close my eyes and pretend.
Play me the waltz of the angels,
So I can dance with my angel again. "

"Let me dance with my angel again..."
