Radio Angel
© Helen Dorothy (2009)

Have you heard the radio angel on marine band sixty-two
Today is her last broadcast - I hear she’s going to Utiku
To all you boys who are out there on the deep blue southern swell
This is fisherman’s radio listening and I hope that you go well

Radio angel – out across the waves
Radio angel – a voice to keep you safe
And if I ever needed angels, this is the kind they would be
Nothing celestial, nothing divine, just ordinary folk who are happy to shine
They'll look out for yours, take care of mine, and they do it with...

Heart and soul
Heart and soul
We’ll look out for each other
If we have heart and we have soul

Have you seen the triple-one angels when there’s darkness and despair
They send the men in red to clear the way and those in blue to clear the air
Here come the aerial angels shuddering through the sky
And they hover like a spaceship while the seconds are flashing by

Triple-one angels – send us someone brave
Triple-one angels – there’s someone here to save
And if I ever needed angels, this is the kind they would be
Nothing celestial, nothing divine, just ordinary folk who are happy to shine
They'll look out for yours and take care of mine, and they do it with...

Heart and soul
Heart and soul
We’ll look out for each other
If we have heart and we have soul

Now there are angels in the mountains and there are angels on the surf
But they’re not the martyrs we hear about who are blowing lives away from earth
So here’s to all you angels out there on the wing
You’re just ordinary people doing your own thing

With heart and with soul
With heart and with soul
We’ll look out for each other
If we have heart and we have soul
