The Lyrics

Rest in peace, John Mastrangelo, a.k.a. Johnny Maestro. The lead singer of the Crests (better known for "Sixteen Candles") and the Brooklyn Bridge (best-known song, "The Worst That Could Happen") died at age 70. One of the greatest doo-woppers/blue-eyed soul men ever. I saw him in concert 3 times. Great singer, more importantly a good guy. As he and so many others sang, "You'll Never Walk Alone."
(vocal opening)

The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
That Johnny Maestro.
The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
That's why we cry so.
Doo-wop's flag is at half-mast.
Johnny's pain over at last.
So long, John.
For the angels
took you.

The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
The Crests' lead singer.
The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
His records linger.
Robert Culp and Stew Udall.
Now a Brooklyn singer's pall.
So long, John.
For the angels
took you.

He searched everywhere
for a curing cancer care.
Sad his life faced interrupt.
Now the angels took him up.

The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
Oh, John, sincerely.
The angels let him in.
(Let him in.)
We'll miss you dearly.
Your songs thrilled the whole wide world
from old men to little girls.
So long, John.
For the angels
took you.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.
Whoa whoa WHOA whoa.
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.
Whoa whoa WHOA whoa.
(repeat 'til fade)

We'll always have doo-wop. Perhaps the best line in memorium comes from Danny and The Juniors..."Rock and Roll will always be, I dig it to the end. It'll go down in history, just you wait my friend". ;D
