Your Angel Steps Out Of Heaven

You tell me you married an angel
She's made heaven out of your home
You say there couldn't be rainbows without her
She's brought you happiness you've never known

You may hate me for what I will tell you
But you'll thank me for setting you right
While you work to keep angels in heaven
Your angel steps out of heaven each night

Her heaven's not the same as you're living in
It's any place where there's music and some free drink thrown in
So call her your angel, I won't say you're not right
But your angel steps out of heaven each night
Yes, your angel steps out of heaven each night
