about

lyrics

I met someone at the dog show
She was holding my left arm
But everyone was acting normal
So I tried to look nonchalant

We both said, “I really love you.”
The Shriners loaned us cars
We raced up and down the sidewalk
Twenty-thousand-million times

PRE-CHORUS
Why did they send her?
Over anyone else?
How should I react?
These things happen to other people
They don’t happen at all, in fact

CHORUS
When you’re following an angel
Doesn’t mean you have to
Throw your body off a building
Somewhere they’re meeting on a pinhead
Calling you an angel
Calling you the nicest things
I heard they had a space program
Where they sing you can’t hear
There’s no air
Sometimes I think I kind of like that and
Other times I think I’m already there

Gonna ask for my admission
Gonna speak to the man in charge
The secretary says he’s on another line
Can I hold for a long long time

I found out she’s an angel
I don’t think she knows I know
I’m worried that something might happen to me
If anyone ever finds out.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS

By (almost) entirely eschewing the acoustic guitar in favor of electric and working with a crack live rhythm section, Michalski's songs reach a new level of energy. Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
