Lyrics to Pyjamarama (Island Mix)

Lyrics to the song Pyjamarama
as recorded by Roxy Music.

Couldn't sleep a wink last night
Oh how I'd love to hold you tight
They say you have a secret life
Made sacrifice your key to paradise
Never mind, take the world by storm
Just boogaloo a rhapsody divine
Take a sweet girl just like you
How nice if only we could bill and coo

I may seem a fool to you for ev'rything
I say or think or do
How could I apologise for all those lies
The world may keeps us far apart but up in heaven, angel
You can have my heart
Diamonds may be your best friend
But like laughter after tears
I'll follow you to the end

Pyjamarama (Island Mix)


The original Island label release in 1973 of Roxy Music's Pyjamarama was different to the Polydor re-issue in 1977. This version had heavier treatments by Eno of Andy MacKay's sax and the guitar refrain at the fade was edited differently to the Polydor mix.

This version was used on The Thrill Of It All Box Set, The Early Years & The Best Of Roxy Music.
