About Pyjamarama

"Pyjamarama" is a song by English rock band Roxy Music, released as a single in March 1973, to promote their For Your Pleasure album, though it was excluded from the album itself. The song was written by Bryan Ferry and was backed by an instrumental non-LP track called "The Pride and the Pain" written by Andrew Mackay. In 1977, it was re-released as a single, together with "Virginia Plain", to promote their Greatest Hits album, and reached number 11. However the 1977 release was a different mix with less sax treatments on it and the closing guitar refrain edited differently from the original Island 7" version. The original version (along with "The Pride and the Pain") was re-released on the box set The Thrill of It All, while the 1977 remix can be found on the Street Life: 20 Great Hits compilation. In 2012, both mixes were included in the ten-disc boxed set The Complete Studio Recordings 1972-1982 on the bonus compilation Singles, B-sides and Alternative Mixes. A live version appears on Viva! 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 everything I say or think or do
How could I apologies 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
