Got a presstop can, cigarettes in my pocket
Going up to the shops
Shopping at shops she's walking with a sunshine tan
Feeling very cool
At the butchers and the bakers and the supermarket stall
Getting ev'rything she wants from the supermarket stall
Apples and oranges

Cornering me as she trips up the street to meet the people
She's on time again and I catch her by the eye
Then I stop and have to think what a funny thing to do
'cos I'm feeling very faint
Apples and oranges

I love she
She loves me
See you
See you

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
Apples and oranges
Apples and oranges

Piper At the Gates of Dawn (2007 reissue)

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

What a way to spend that ev'ning!
They all turn up with their friends
Playing the game
They're in the scene
Oh I should have been far away

Getting up, I feel so bad
Remembering what's been before
I open the door
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'll see thru anyway

Out of the frontdoor I go
Traffic moving rather slow - arriving late
There she waits looking very angry
As cross as she can be

Getting up, I feel so bad
Remembering what's been before
I open the door to an empty room
Then I forget
