Angels We Have Heard on High (Vol. 8)
Angels we have heard on high
Singing for the earth's attention
And the mountains in reply
So much noise for my affection

Shepherds, why this jubilee
Have you seen a flying saucer?
And what the gladsome tidings be
Is it power and wealthier after?

Gloria, it speaks of your devotion
Gloria, the counting and commotion
Gloria, I cannot stand to listen
Gloria, it takes from my ambition
Gloria

Come to Bethlehem and see
The Son of God inside a manger
Come, adore on bended knee
Where dreams become your greatest danger

Gloria, it puts your heart in motion
Gloria, like some romantic notion
Gloria, it gives a great petition
Gloria, and takes from your ambition
Gloria

Gloria
Gloria
