What Paul Simon collection would be complete without "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes" ? (Apologies to anyone who loves this song, it really doesn't do it justice)

"Her angel's face is no longer blue" (To Diamonds on the soles of her shoes by Paul Simon and Joseph Shabalala )

She's a sad girl, and she just can't hide it
Her angel's face is sad and blue.
(Awo awo)

He's a poor boy,
Desperately searching,
Desperately seeking
with nothing to lose
Sing tanana, tananana
Her angel's face is sad and blue
(Awo awo)
tanana, tananana
Her angel's face is sad and blue,
(Awo awo)
her angel's face is sad and blue.
(Awo awo)
Sad and blue.

People say she's whiney,
her angel face is sad and blue.
Well now she's come and gained her acting dues,
sad and blue...

She was very near forgotten
but then she met Kotone and her heart thawed.
But then her outlook changed,
she was outspoken,
hurt the selfless boy she now cared for...

And he said "Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo ooo.
Why does this stuff always happen,
always happen in this way, to me?"

She makes the sign of regret
he promptly forgives her
He takes his warmest thoughts and shows them to her,
to show her that he can understand.

And she said "Please let me keep them,
they cut so very deeply, yet I love them"
The boy, so softly spoken, he aggrees then
He knows now he's been forgiven.

And he'll sing "Oo oo oo oo oo oo oo ooo,
you were exactly what I was talking about,
you are utterly who I was thinking about...
your angel's face, so true"

And now she's happy,
And she don't try one little bit to hide it
her angel's face no longer blue.
Well now she's come and gained her acting dues,
and her angel's face is no longer blue.
(awo awo)
her angel's face is no longer blue.
(awo awo)
her angel's face is no longer blue.
