About Heaven and Hell

"Heaven and Hell" is a song by English rock band The Who written by group bassist John Entwistle. The studio version (originally recorded for an April 1970 BBC session), which appeared on the B-side of the live "Summertime Blues" single, is currently available only on the Thirty Years of Maximum R&B boxed set and Who's Missing, though several live versions of the song exist on official releases. The song was one of many Entwistle B-side singles and one of his live staples.

On top of the sky is a place where you go if you've done nothing wrong
If you've done nothing wrong
And down in the ground is a place where you go if you've been a bad boy
If you've been a bad boy

Why can't we have eternal life
And never die
Never die?
In the place up above you grow feather wings and you fly round and round
With a harp singing hymns

And down in the ground you grow horns and a tail and you carry a fork
And burn away

Why can't we have eternal life, and never die
Never die?
