(Flute solo intro)

You can take all the tea in China.
Put it in a big brown bag for me.
Sail right around all the seven oceans.
Drop it straight into the big blue sea.

She's as sweet as tupelo honey.
She's an angel of the first degree.
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey, baby, from the bee.

You can't stop us on the road to freedom.
You can't keep us, 'cause our eyes can't see.
Men with insight, men in granite.
Knights in armor bent on chivalry.

She's as sweet as tupelo honey.
She's an angel of the first degree.  (She's an angel.)
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey, baby, from the bee.  

(Guitar solo)

(Saxophone solo)

You can't stop us on the road to freedom.
You can't keep us, 'cause our eyes can't see.
Men with insight, men in granite.
Knights in armor bent on chivalry.

She's as sweet as tupelo honey.
She's an angel of the first degree.  (She's an angel.)
She's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey, baby, from the bee.  (She's an angel.)
Oh, you know she's alright.
You know she's alright with me.  (She's an angel.)
Oh, you know, you know, you know she's alright.
She's alright with me.  (She's an angel.)
Well, you know, you know, you know, you know, you know she's alright, 'right with me.  (She's an angel.)
She's alright, yeah.  She's alright, she's alright with me.
(She's an angel.)
She's alright, she's alright to me.  (She's an angel.)
She's alright, she's alright.  (She's an angel.)
She's all, she's alright, she's alright, she's alright.  
(She's an angel.)
She's alright, she's alright, she's alright, she's alright.
(She's an angel.)

You can take all the tea in China.
Put it in a big brown bag for me.
Sail it right around all the seven oceans.
Drop it smack dab in the middle of the deep blue sea because

She's as sweet at tupelo honey, yes she is.
She's an angel of the first degree.  (She's an angel.)
Ohhh, she's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey, baby, from the bee.  (She's an angel.)
Oh, she's as sweet as tupelo honey.
She's an angel of the first degree.  (She's an angel.)
Oh, she's as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like the real thing, oh, from the bee.  (She's an angel.)
Yeah, don't you know that, oh, she's alright,
She's alright with me.  (She's an angel.)
She's my babe, yeah.  Don't you know 'right.  (She's an angel.)
She's my baby, babe, yeah.  Don't you know 'right.
(She's an angel.)
She's my baby.  Oh, oh, oh.  She's all...
Diddle di, diddle da, dit, dit, doo.  (She's an angel.)
Dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, doo.  (She's an angel.)
Dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, dit, doo.
(She's an angel.)
Diddle, duh, diddle, duh, diddle, duh, diddle, duh, diddle, duh, diddle, duh, diddle duh.
