I saw an angel in the water
and he grew
and he grew.
He washed his hands before the slaughter
and he knew
and he knew.

But oh, the fun he had
in the water
in the water.
And oh, the time he had
at the slaughter
at the slaughter.

I saw an angel in the fire
and he grew
and he grew.
He sang a song like a choir
and he knew
and he knew.

But oh, the way he sang
like a choir
like a choir.
And oh, the song he sang
from the fire
in the fire.

I saw an angel in a tree
and all around were jackals.
He pointed to a key
that would unlock his shackles.

But oh, the things he sang
from the tree
from the tree.
And oh, the things he asked
of the jackals and me.
