There was one, there were two, there were three little angels,
There were four, there were five, there were six little angels,
There were seven, there were eight, there were nine little angels,
Ten little angels in that band.
Oh wasn’t that a day, Sunday morning,
Sunday morning, Sunday morning,
Wasn’t that a day, Sunday morning soon.
