The other guitar player in the group I'm with brought this song last night, She talks to angels.
She talks with angels, they call her name.
How would that be in greek? How's this?

Actually, the lyrics in English are

Says, she talks to angels,
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels,
Says they call her out by her name

τοις αγγελοις φησι λεγειν.
κατ' ονομα καλοῦσιν αυτην.
λεγει δη τοις αγγελοις.
αυτους δε φησι κατ' ονομα καλεῖν αυτην.

{ οι λογοι μεν ουν Βρεττανικοι εισιν

Says, she talks to angels,
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels,
Says they call her out by her name

τοις αγγελοις φησι λεγειν.
κατ' ονομα καλοῦσιν αυτην.
λεγει δη τοις αγγελοις
αυτους δε φησι κατ' ονομα καλεῖν αυτην. }
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.
