UPON a hill in Gateshead There stands an angel high She has a great big wing span And her head is in the sky She's made from heavy metal From her head down to her feet All the folks admire her As they travel down the street People come from miles around They come from everywhere Find themselves a vantage point They just stand and stare They wonder in amazement At this metal monument Thinking was it made by man Or was it heaven sent Try not to think of her as steel Don't see her as being cold She's just the Angel of the North Standing there quite bold Next time you visit Gateshead Town Don't give her a miss Walk up to our angel And give her one big kiss.
