Johnny Angel Lyrics
(Words and Music by Lee Pockriss and Lyn Duddy)

(Johnny Angel, Johnny Angel, Johnny Angel, Johnny Angel)
You're an angel to me

Johnny Angel, how I love him
He's got something that I can't resist
But he doesn't even know that I-I-I exist

Johnny Angel, how I want him
How I tingle when he passes by
Every time he says "Hello" my heart begins to fly

(I'm in heaven) I get carried away
I dream of him and me and how it's gonna be
(Other fellas) call me up for a date
But I just sit and wait, I'd rather concentrate

On Johnny Angel (Johnny Angel)
'cause I love him ('cause I love him)
And I pray that someday he'll love me
And together we will see how lovely heaven will be


(Johnny Angel, Johnny Angel)
Johnny Angel, (Johnny Angel), you're an angel to me

(Johnny Angel, Johnny Angel)
Johnny Angel, (Johnny Angel), you're an angel to me
