by Maritime

Angel and Ida
Asleep by the pool again
Trying to chase the day away
She always wore red shoes
So I wore a matching tie
And everyone thought that we were a pair

But our teeth are wood

I'm the king of doves
With perfect skin
We're dressing up
And dining in
It's who I am

All of your arms all
Over my problems now
Property just fades away
We'll always have Canada
No one will bother us
The horses and the company play

But our teeth are wood
In the dusty air
Our blood is wine
The year's been good
We stopped time
The votes are in
It's always July
I'm the king of doves
With perfect skin
We're dressing up
And dining in
It's who I am

The year's been good
We stopped time
The votes are in
It's always July
I'm the king of doves
With perfect skin
We're dressing up
And dining in

The year's been good
We stopped time
The votes are in
It's always July
I'm the king of doves
With perfect skin
We're dressing up
And dining in
It's who I am
