Full Song Lyrics, 22 January 2007
Author: ckadrhanshaw from United States

Back in the days of Valentino,We know! A maid named Ethel was so bright and alive Wacky-doo,wacky-doo,wacky-doo!

But she was struck down by a trolley,goley! Said good-bye in nineteen twenty and five Toodle-loo,toodle-doo!

Ethel in heaven waited patiently To gain her wings to be an angel fancy free!!!

Sixty years later the opportunity To help a family Came through! A-bo-bo-be-do!Twenty-three skiddo!

Back Down to Earth To teach the Prestons lessons Richard,Lizzie,Duane and Jay Jay too!

Now she must be a nineteen eighties lady Down to Earth it's so angelical! Down to Earth it's quite a spectacle Down to Earth it's just hysterical! She's Down to Earth Down to Earth Down to Earth!
