"Angela Mia" (1928) ~My Angel~
Sung by Harold Scrappy Lambert~From the 1928 film "Street Angel"
Starving artist and a beauty with a secret~is there room in this world for them?
A woman on the run from the law finds her past catching up to her just as she is on the verge of true happiness.

Street Angel is a 1928 silent film about a spirited young woman (Janet Gaynor) who finds herself destitute and on the streets before joining a traveling carnival, where she meets a vagabond painter (Charles Farrell). Directed by Frank Borzage, the movie was adapted by H.H. Caldwell (titles),Katherine Hilliker (titles), Philip Klein, Marion Orth and Henry Roberts Symonds from the play Lady Cristilinda by Monckton Hoffe.
Street Angel was one of three movies for which Janet Gaynor received an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1929; the others were F. W. Murnau'sSunrise and Borzage's Seventh Heaven. Street Angel was also nominated for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography. The acting award was given in 1929 and the other two in 1930, which accords the movie the distinction of being the only film to ever receive an Oscar nomination in two different years that was not a foreign language film.

I checked out an article in Wikipedia. Basically, it said that sheet music was often included with silent films being distributed to theatres. The big city theatres often had powerful house pipe organs or even orchestras and singers for certain showings and at least a piano for others. Almost all of the small town theatres had at least a piano. I could not get the link to go into this reply so you might check it out yourself if you have the time.

Hi Dave,
I am also open to any suggestions/answers too. If anyone has an answer I would be so grateful.
The only thing I can think of is maybe the film was "re-mastered" with sound at a later date and perhaps in the silent movie they just posted the words????
I am just as confused as you!
