Lyrics to Pyjamarama (Polydor 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 (Polydor Mix)


Roxy Music's Pyjamarama was re mixed for the Greatest Hits album in 1977. The sax had less treatments on it and the closing guitar refrain was edited differently to the original Island 7" version.

This version was also used as the flip side to the double 'A' re-issue of Virginia Plain in 1977 and can also be found on CD on the Street Life 20 Great Hits album.
