Bek Lyrics

Halo Of Gold

(From the Tropicalia Single)

[Written by Alexander 'Skip' Lee Spence]

Have you got a fine place to slip to
When you're feeling down?
Have you had a week or two
Just to get your troubles down?
Found a lot of life and laughter
With a grandfather in the bowery
She had a body of sixteen or seventeen
She had a mind of forty

I met her on a cold day in a city far away

When the world's about zero
And I saw at once into her soul
She's bound to call me her hero
Then like a walk in the rain, an the lane
I found a lot of death that day
With the grandfather in the bowery
'Cause I love her like the world

She had a halo of gold
Told me stories of her life
And the courage was sublime
'Cause you're mine, I walk the line
'Cause you're mine, lalala

Have you got a fine place to slip to
When you're feeling down?
Have you had a week or two
Just to get your troubles down?
Found a lot of life and laughter
With a grandfather in the bowery
She had a body of sixteen or seventeen
She had a mind of forty

When the world's about zero
And I saw at once into her soul
She's bound to call me her hero
Then like a walk in the rain, an the lane
I found a lot of death that day
With the grandfather in the bowery
'Cause I love her like the world

She had a halo of gold
Told me stories of her life
And her courage was sublime
'Cause you're mine, I walk the line
'Cause you're mine, lalala
