Sing me a song, you're a singer Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil The devil is never a maker The less that you give, you're a taker So it's on and on and on, it's heaven and hell Oh well
The lover of life's not a sinner The ending is just a beginner The closer you get to the meaning The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell I can tell Fool, fool
Oh uh Yeah, yeah, yeah
Well if it seems to be real, it's illusion For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer And it's on and on, on and on and on and on and on and on and on
They say that life's a carousel Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well The world is full of kings and queens Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams It's heaven and hell, oh well
And they'll tell you black is really white The moon is just the sun at night And when you walk in golden halls You get to keep the gold that falls It's heaven and hell, oh no
Fool, fool You've got to bleed for the dancer Fool, fool Look for the answer Fool, fool, fool

Jodie from XxLmao at Michael Sweet thinking he could have written the lyrics to Heaven and Hell. There's only one thing worse than Christian metal and that's country and not by far.
Cyberpope from Richmond, CanadaDio's good, but he was never an Ozzy, for meshing with Sabbath. . . I am fortunate enough to own all Ozzy's Black Sabbath albums on vinyl; got Heaven & Hell, too, & Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, but nothing beats Ozzy's!

I think the "dancer" could be the entertainer/performer that performs for you (ie the people). You pay for the show but that's it. I'm most likely wrong but that's what I get from the song.
Michael from Santa Cruz, Ca"Heaven & Hell" is a GREAT album,but for my money,"Turn Up The Night",the first track from the album "Mob Rules" marked a decided change of direction for the band(for the better as the band was becoming dated IMHO)."The world is full of kings & queens/who blind your eyes/& steal your dreams/it's heaven & hell"is one of the best,descriptive lyrics of it's time.
Beck from Stockton, CaI was never much of a Dio fan but he is a good singer. Honestly though? When it comes to Black Sabbath, I do prefer Ozzy.
Frank from Loma Linda, CaWho's the "Dancer" Dio is singing about? -Frank, Loma Linda, CA
Johua from Sydney, Australiadio is a better singer and muso but ozzy is what made black sabbath the great band that it is
Anthony from Parsippany, NjFirst song I ever heard RJD sing. I was hooked like a salmon!
David from Huron, SdRonnie Dio kicks ass on this album. In my opinion he took Black Sabbath to new horizons just because he was willing to change with the band and go different directions
Greg from Slidell, Laozzy is def better...he got kicked out then hooked up with randy rhoads and became way more popular than sabbath ever was...then dio wanted 2 do the same thing so he left but he never came anywhere near ozzys popularity.
Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaI love the classic Ozzy Sabbath, but I gotta say, when I first heard this song, my jaw dropped. I can certainly make room for Ronnie Dio and his contributions to the Sabbath legacy. I've seen both singers front the band live and was equally impressed.
Lester from New York City, NyThis is one of the great rock albums ever. My favorite song is 'Lonely Is The Word'. Heavy-Metal blues.
Steve from Lake Havasu City, AzI saw Black Sabbath with Dio sing this song live in 1980 they were touring with Molly Hatchet. I saw Dio twice in the 90's sing too. He still sounds good even now live. I know alot of people like Black Sabbath with Ozzy, but Heaven and Hell was and still is their most popular album ever. And it got more radio time than any other Black Sabbath Albums ever did.
Kent from Stockholm, SwedenJacko you sick bastard >: Black Sabbath without Ozzy is just not Black Sabbath...
Jacko from London, EnglandTotally agree with Ralph - this is one Sabbaths finest offerings.I actually prefer Sabbath with Dio to Ozzy - a far superior,more powerful voice. Never had the pleasure of seeing them live tho !!
Ralph from Houston, TxI can't believe that there are no comments about this song. It is one of the top five rock songs ever written, IMHO. It is amazingly diverse and progressive tempo-wise. I love the baseline in the first verse and the way it switches to a guitar riff in the third verse. The up-tempo ending is reminiscent of the end of Stairway to Heaven. Awesome lead guitar as well, and the classical guitar outro is amazing. I saw them, as the band 'Heaven and Hell' with Dio, do this in Houston in May 2007 and it rocked. I was in the second row and caught one of Toni Iommi's pics. Next to my late Grandfathers pocket watch and my late mother's graduation ring, it is my most cherished possession.
