Well there's a drunk man spilling his piss on the floor
While old toothless ladies pose as young pretty whores,
When life's this entertaining,
What do we need angels for?

Well there's a yapping old priest lookin' pretty forlorn,
Stubbornly chaste with a face full of scorn,
Sure inspires a man to say
"What do we need angels for?"

Well the big bad devil tried to kick down my door
But my dog scared him away with a squeaky-ass roar,
With a devil like that,
What do we need angels for?

The piercing notes of their endless gospel songs
Will kill all your brain cells and make you want to yawn,
Let's grab one by the wings, drag him down to a bar,
Buy him a Heineken and a cigar,
Heaven sure sounds like a boring place,
Let's give the a piece of the human race,

Well I'm meeting my drug dealer outside the store,
He sold me cocaine, and now he's selling some more,
I snort a line and wonder,
What do we need angels for?

Well there's a dream I've been having since the day I was born
Where the stars are arranged in a peculiar form
That spells out the words,
"What do we need angels for?"

Well the naked girls band are about to perform
'Cause that's what we pay our prostitutes for,
With women like that,
What do we need angels for?

Strolling through the Hollywood streets on a saturday night,
Watching those tough-guy knuckleheads get into fights,
Knucklehead see and knucklehead do
And that's how riots break loose,
All this chaos is giving me adrenaline-
Heads up, folks, 'cause I'm jumping in!

There's a great big riot, someone tally the score,
Bones are gonna break, heads are gonna get sore,
When we're having this much fun,
What do we need angels for?
