Maid In Heaven

Here's a beautiful song by Be Bop Deluxe, from the 1975 album "Futurama," when the band was a trio (Bill Nelson: words & music, guitars & lead vocal; Charles Tumahai: bass & harmony vocal; Simon Fox: drums):



From the BBC sessions, later in 1975, as a quartet, with Andrew Clarke on keyboards:



From "Tramcar To Tomorrow" with a special bonus track, "Bringer of light to the feast"



More recently, Bill Nelson and the Gentlemen Rocketeers:



She's a maid in heaven
he's a knight on the tiles
a bat out of hell, oh well
it's just a question of style

It's a time for giving
in the two-star hotel
where breakfast in bed per head
is just the price of a smile

I know
it's not easy to live this way
just an hour and a fleeting kiss
till the morning

Silent night of wonders
day breaks through the door
so broken and torn, reborn
two shadows thrown on the floor

Hold me now, go lightly
take the rough with the smooth
a token of love, my love
was made in heaven for you
made in heaven for you
made in heaven for you
