Song Lyric Sunday – 9 May 2021 – Heaven Knows – I’ve used this before!

Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday gives us the chance to share familiar, and sometimes not so familiar, songs. This week Jim asks us for a song with a title, or lyrics, containing one of the words Heaven, or Hell.

If you fancy sharing one of your favourite songs you can find out how to participate, and also listen to all the great entries here.

This week I’m cheating because I’m reusing a song that I used in August 2020 for a prompt of “below”. However, it is a corker and well worth watching again, and again!

Some of you may remember that it featured video of Jim’s dance instructor because he spotted the secret camera that I’d installed in the dance studio and destroyed all images of his dancing!

First though, here is The Pretty Reckless with Heaven Knows. The song is from their second studio album, Going To Hell, released in 2014.

Heaven Knows – Isle of Wight festival 2014

And here is Jim’s dance instructor dancing to the official recording of the original release. Jim swears that he wore a simple leotard for all his lessons!

Heaven Knows

The Pretty Reckless

Jimmy’s in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close
You can hear him cry
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing it
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below

Judy’s in the front seat picking up trash
Living on the dough
Gotta make that cash
Won’t be pretty
Won’t be sweet
She’s just in here on her feet

Sing it
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Go
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing
Tell her so
We belong way down below
Oh oh, tell her so
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

I’ve got what it takes, man
I see every day
I’ve got a better wise man
I know that I worth

One, two, three and four
The devil’s knocking at your door
Caught in the eye of a dead man’s wife
Show you life with your head up high
Now you’re on your knees
With your head down low
Big mental, she wear it to go
Tell her it’s good
Tell her okay
Don’t do a God thing they say

Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh oh, tell her so
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

I’ve got a better wise man
I know that I worth
I’ve got what it takes, man
I see every day

Jenna’s in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close
You can hear the crying
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh oh, tell her so
We belong way down below
Oh oh, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh oh, tell her so
We belong way down below

Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below
