Oh, I used to be disgusted
And now I try to be amused
But since their wings have got rusted
You know the angels wanna wear my red shoes

But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain
That's when I knew that I could not refuse
And I won't get any older
Now the angels wanna wear my red shoes

Oh-oh, I was watching while you're dancing away
Our love got fractured in the echo and sway
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
You know that it still hurts me just to say it

Oh, I know that she's disgusted
(Oh, why is that?)
Because she's feeling so abused
(Oh, that's too bad)
She gets tired of the lust
(Oh, I'm so sad)
But it's so hard to refuse

How can you say that I'm too old
When the angels have stolen my red shoes?

Oh-oh, I said, "I'm so happy, I could die"
She said, "Drop dead," then left with another guy
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance
Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence

So I used to be disgusted
Well now I try to be amused
But since their wings have got rusted
You know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes

But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain
That's when I knew that I could not refuse
And I won't get any older
Now the angels wanna wear my red shoes

Oh, I won't get any older
Now the angels wanna wear my red shoes

Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes
