A Sinner Kissed an Angel

by Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Lois Vaughan (March 27, 1924 – April 3, 1990) was an American jazz singer, described by Scott Yanow as having "one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century."




Stars in the sky were dancing
One night perfect for romancing
The night a sinner kissed an angel
He wanted thrills, she wanted love

Oh, but his sighs were tender
As he begged her to surrender
The night a sinner kissed an angel
And she believed that it was love

How was she to know that every lovely vow
Was part of the game he was playing?
But to his surprise he realized
Somehow he meant every word he was saying

Yes, miracles can happen
I know 'cause I saw what happened
That night a sinner kissed an angel
That was the night I fell in love
