Song Meaning
Verse 1
This is the place where I made my best mistakes
This is the place even angels don't understand
I've seen the disappointment in her face
And the collection of engagement rings on her right hand
Verse 2
She sits alone apart from the crowd
In a white dress she wears like a question mark
Friends speak of her fondly
Enemies just think out loud
Verse 3
You think you're man enough to please her
And you're fool enough to start
But you're not gonna do a thing to our little angel
There's nothing you're thinkin' tonight that tomorrow won't change
Verse 4
Now the cabaret is frozen
And the laughter comes in cans
And the lonely hearts club clientele
Don't know what to do with their hands
Verse 5
You think that you'll be sweet to her but everybody knows
That you're the marshmallow valentine that got stuck on her clothes
And you're not goinna do a thing to our little angel
There's nothing you're thinkin' tonight that tomorrow won't change
Verse 6
So you mix your drinks and words
You make bad jokes, you make bad time
The floors are there to walk over
The walls are there to climb
Verse 7
You swear you'll never go back again once you're inside
You're never the bridegroom she's always the bride
You're not gonna do a thing to our little angel
There's nothing you're thinkin' tonight that tomorrow won't change
Verse 8
You'll come in a sweetheart and you'll go out a stranger
Well, you try to love her but she's so contrary
Like a chainsaw running through a dictionary
So get your mind off the sweet behind of our little angel
Verse 9
You're not gonna do a thing
You're not gonna do a thing
You're not gonna do a thing to our little angel
