Heaven and Hell is a song by English rock band The Who written by group bassist John Entwistle, who also sings the lead vocals. 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, 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 samples. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

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?
