POZOSTAŁE UTWORY


APPLES AND ORANGES
[ Barrett ]

Got a flip-top pack of cigarettes in her pocket
Feeling good at the top
Shopping in sharp shoes
Walking in the sunshine town, feeling very cool
But the butchers and the bakers in the supermarket stores
Getting everything she wants from the supermarket stores
Apples and oranges
Cornering neatly she trips up sweetly to meet the people
She's on time again, and then
I catch her by the eye then I stop and have to think
What a funny thing to do 'cause I'm feeling very pink
Apples and oranges
I love she
She loves me
See you, see you, see you
Apples and oranges
I thought you might like to know
I'm the lorry driver man
She's on the run
Down by the river side
Feeding ducks by the afternoon tide
Apples and oranges



ARNOLD LAYNE

[ Barrett ]

Arnold Layne had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes
Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine
On the wall hung a tall mirror
Distorted view
See-through baby blue
He dug it
Oh Arnold Layne, it's not the same
It takes two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see?
Now he's caught, a nasty sort of person
They gave him time
Doors bang, chain gang
He hates it
Oh Arnold Layne, it's not the same
It takes two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see?
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne don't do it again



BIDING MY TIME
[ Waters ]

Wasting my time
Resting my mind
And I'll never pine
For the sad days and the bad days
When we was workin' from nine to five
And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes
And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes



CANDY AND A CURRANT BUN
[ Barrett ]

Oh, my girl sitting in the sun
Go, buy candy and a currant bun
I like to see you run
Like that
Oooh, don't talk to me
Please just fuck with me
Please, you know I'm feeling frail
It's true, sun shining very bright
It's you who I'm gonna love tonight
Ice cream taste good in the afternoon
Ice cream taste good if you eat it soon
Oooh, don't touch me child
Please, you know you drive me wild
Please, you know I'm feeling frail
Don't try another cat
Don't go where other you must know why
Very very very frail
Oh, my girl sitting in the sun
Go, buy candy and a currant bun
I like to see you run
Like that

 

EMBRYO
[ Waters ]

All this love
Is all I am
A ball is all I am
I'm so new
Compared to you
And I am very small
Warm glow
Moon glow
Always need a little more room
Waiting here
Seems like years
Never see the light of day
All around
I hear strange sounds
Come gurgling in my ear
Red the light
And dark the night
I feel my dawn is near
Warm glow
Moon glow
Always need a little more room
Whisper low
Here I go
I will see the sunshine show



IT WOULD BE SO NICE
[ Wright ]

It would be so nice, it would be so nice
It would be so nice to meet sometime
Everybody wakes, and in the morning
Hot tea and can't stop yawning
Pass the butter please
Have you ever read the Daily Standard?
Reading all about the plane that's landed
Upside down?
And no one knows what I did today
There can be no other way
But I would just like to say
It would be so nice, it would be so nice
It would be so nice to meet sometime
Everybody cares about the weather
And everybody should know better
What a waste of time
Everybody lives beneath the ceiling
Living out a dream that sends them reeling
To a distant place
But no one knows what I did today
There can be no other way
But I would just like to say
It would be so nice, it would be so nice
It would be so nice to meet sometime



JULIA DREAM
[ Waters ]

Sunlight bright upon my pillow
Lighter than an eiderdown
Will she let the weeping willow
Wined his branches round
Julia dream
Dream-world Queen
Queen of all my dreams
Every night I turn the light out
Waiting for the velvet bride
Will the scaly armadillo find me where I'm hiding?
Julia dream
Dream-world Queen
Queen of all my dreams
Will the misty master break me?
Will the key unlock my mind?
Will the following footsteps catch me?
Am I really dying?
Julia dream
Dream-world Queen
Queen of all my dreams



KING BEE
[ Slim Harpo / Barrett ]

Well I'm a King Bee
Buzzing around your hive
Yes I'm a King Bee, child
Buzzing around your hive
I can make good honey
Let me come inside
I'm young and able
To buzz all night long
You know I'm young and able
To buzz all night long
When you hear me buzz, little girl
You know some stinging's going on
Well, buzz some... I'll sting!
Yeah
Well I'm a King Bee
Can buzz all night long
Yes I'm a King Bee
Can buzz all night long
Well I buzz better baby
When your man is gone



LOUDER THAN WORDS
[ Gilmour / Samson ]

We bitch and we fight
Diss each other on sight
But this thing we do
These times you get
Rain or shine or stormy weather
This thing we do
With world-weary grace
We've taken our places
We could curse it or nurse it and give it a name
Or stay home by the fire
Failed by desire
Stoking the flames
But we're here for the ride
It's louder than words this thing that we do
Louder than words - the way it unfurls
It's louder than words - the sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts is louder than words
Louder than words
The strings bend and slide as the hours fly by
An old pair of shoes
Your favorite blues gonna tap out the rhythm
Let's go with the flow
Wherever it goes
We're more than alive
It's louder than words this thing that we do
Louder than words - the way it unfurls
It's louder than words - the sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts is louder than words
Louder than words - this thing they call soul
Is there with a pulse louder than words
Louder than words



LUCY LEAVE
[ Barrett ]

Leave when I ask you to leave, Lucy
Please far away from me, Lucy
Oh, go little girl
Seen is oh so broken up about you, Lucy
Mean treat me and done me harm, Lucy
Been in love with you and your charms, Lucy
Oh, go little girl
I'm in love with you, Lucy
You got my heart
You got my heart, oh no!
You tear me apart
You just won't let me go
You hold on so tight
So tight I just can't breath
Now Lucy leave, Lucy!
Leave when I ask you to leave, little girl
Please far away from me, little girl
Yeah, go little girl
Seen is oh so broken up about you, Lucy
Yeah, go


MATILDA MOTHER (ALTERNATIVE VERSION)
[ Barrett ]

There was a boy whose name was Jim
His friends, they were very good to him
They gave him tea, and cakes and jam
And slices of delicious ham
Oh Mother, tell me more!
Why'd you have to leave me there
Hanging in my infant air, waiting?
You only have to read the lines of
Scribbly black and everything shines
The chief defect of Henry King
Was chewing little bits of string
At last he swallowed some which tied
Itself in ugly knots inside
Wondering and dreaming
Yes they did...
Finding she was left alone
Went tiptoe to the telephone, 999
Summoned the immediate aid
Of London's Noble Fire Brigade
For all the time spent in that room
The doll's house, darkness, old perfume
And fairy stories held me high
On clouds of sunlight floating by
Oh Mother, tell me more!
Tell me more!


PAINTBOX
[ Wright ]

Last night I had too much to drink
Sitting in a club with so many fools
Playing to rules
Trying to impress but feeling rather empty
I had another drink
Drink - a - drink - a - drink - a - drink
What a way to spend that evening
They all turn up with their friends
Playing the game
But in the scene I should have been
Far away
Away - away - away - away - away
Getting up, I feel as if I'm remembering this scene before
I open the door to an empty room
Then I forget
The telephone rings and someone speaks
She would very much like to go out to a show
So what can I do - I can't think what to say
She sees through anyway
Away - away - away - away - away
Out of the front door I go
Traffic's moving rather slow
Arriving late, there she waits
Looking very angry, as cross as she can be
Be - a - be - a - be - a - be - a - be
Getting up, I feel as if I'm remembering this scene before
I open the door to an empty room
Then I forget



POINT ME AT THE SKY
[ Waters ]

Hey Eugene, this is Henry McClean
And I've finished my beautiful flying machine
And I'm ringing to say
That I'm leaving and maybe
You'd like to fly with me and hide with me, baby
Isn't it strange
How little we change
Isn't it sad we're insane
Laying the games that we know and in tears
The games we've been playing for thousands and thousands and thousands...
Jumps into his cosmic flyer
Pulls his plastic collar higher
Light the fuse and stand right back
He cried
This is my last goodbye
Point me at the sky and let it fly
And if you survive till two thousand and five
I hope you're exceedingly thin
For if you are stout, you will have to breathe out
While the people around you breathe in
People pushing on my sides
Is something that I hate
And so is sitting down to eat with only little capsules on my plate
Point me at the sky and let it fly
And all we've got to say to you is goodbye
It's time to go, better run and get your bags
It's goodbye
Nobody cry, it's goodbye
Crash, crash, crash, crash, goodbye



RAVING AND DROOLING
[ Waters ]

Raving and drooling I fell on his neck with a scream
He had a whole lotta terminal shock in his eyes
That's what you get for pretending the rest are not real
Babbling and snapping at far away flies
He will zig zag his way back through memories of boredom and pain
How does it feel to be empty and angry and spaced
Split up the middle between the illusion of safety in numbers
And the fist in your face



SCREAM THY LAST SCREAM
[ Barrett ]

Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket
Blam blam your pointers, point your pointers
What'll be to crunch in your sisters
She'll be scrubbing bubbles on all fours
Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket
Fling your arms madly old lady with a daughter
Flack chap chau fauses, mouses, houses
Flitting and hitting and fitting quack quack
Watching the teley till all hours big time
Fling your arms madly, old lady with a daughter
Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket
Blam blam your pointers, point your pointers
What'll be coming to crunch in your sisters
She'll be scrubbing bubbles on all fours
Scream thy last scream, old woman with a casket



SEABIRDS
[ Waters ]

Mighty waves come crashing down
The spray is lashing high into the eagle's eye
Shrieking as it cuts the devil wind
Is calling sailors to the deep
But I can hear the sound of seabirds in my ear
And I can see you smile
Surf is high and the sea is awash
And a haze of candy floss, glitter and beads
Rock that we sat on and watched in the sun
That was hot to touch
And the sea was emerald green
And I can hear the sound of seabirds in my ear
And I can see you smile
Surf comes rushing up the beach
Now will it reach the castle wall and will it fall
Catfish dappled silver flashing
Dogfish puffing bubbles in my deep

But I can hear the sound of seabirds in my ear
And I can see you smile



SEE EMILY PLAY

[ Barrett ]

Emily tries but misunderstands
She often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Soon after dark Emily cries
Gazing through trees in sorrow, hardly a sound till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Put on a gown that touches the ground
Float on a river for ever and ever
Emily, Emily
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play



THE HERO'S RETURN (PART 2)
[ Waters ]

Jesus Christ, I might as well be dead
If I can't see how dangerous it must feel to be
Training human cogs for the machine
Without some shell-shocked lunatic like me
Bombarding their still soft shores
With sticks and stones that were lying around
In the pile of unspeakable feelings I'd found
When I turned back the stone
Turned over the stone
Of my own disappointment back home



VEGETABLE MAN
[ Barrett ]

In yellow shoes I get the blues
Though I walk the streets with my plastic feet
With my blue velvet trousers make me feel pink
There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
In my paisley shirt I look a jerk
And my turquoise waistcoat is quite out of sight
But oh-oh, my haircut looks so bad!
Vegetable Man, how are you?
So I've changed my gear and I find my knees
And I covered them up with the latest cut
And my pants and socks all point in a box
They don't make long of my nylon socks
The watch, black watch
My watch with a black face
And a big pin, a little hole
And all the lot is what I got
It's what I wear
It's what you see
It must be me
It's what I am
Vegetable Man
I've been looking all over the place for a place for me
But it ain't anywhere, it just ain't anywhere
Vegetable Man
He's the kind of person you just gonna see him if you can
Vegetable man



WHAT SHALL WE DO NOW?
[ Waters ]

What shall we use
To fill the empty spaces
Where waves of hunger roar?
Shall we set out across this sea of faces
In search of more and more applause?
Shall we buy a new guitar?
Shall we drive a more powerful car?
Shall we work straight through the night?
Shall we get into fights?
Leave the lights on?
Drop bombs?
Do tours of the East?
Contract diseases?
Bury bones?
Break up homes?
Send flowers by phone?
Take to drink?
Go to shrinks?
Give up meat?
Rarely sleep?
Keep people as pets?
Train dogs?
Race rats?
Fill the attic with cash?
Bury treasure?
Store up leisure
But never relax at all?
With our backs to the wall



WHEN THE TIGERS BROKE FREE
[ Waters ]

It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black forty-four
When the Forward Commander was told to sit tight
When he asked that his men be withdrawn
And the Generals gave thanks
As the other ranks
Held back the enemy tanks for a while
And the Anzio Bridgehead was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives
And kind old King George
Sent Mother a note
When he heard that Father was gone
It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll
With gold leaf and all
And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs
Hidden away
And my eyes still grow damp
To remember His Majesty
Signed with his own rubber stamp
It was dark all around
There was frost in the ground
When the tigers broke free
And no one survived
From the Royal Fusiliers Company C
They were all left behind
Most of them dead
The rest of them dying
And that's how the High Command took my Daddy from me
