Remember that night

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 thru' baby blue

He dug it - oh Arnold Layne
It's not the same
Takes two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see
Arnold Layne

Now he's caught
A nasty sort of person
They gave him time
Doors clang, chain gang

He hates it - Oh Arnold Layne
It's not the same
Takes two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see
Arnold Layne
Don't do it again

The original title of the song was 'Let's Roll Another One', but Pink Floyd was forced to change the title and some of the most 'explicit' lyrics before the song could be 'politically correct' single material. The song can be traced back to 1966 and the song Stoned Alone.

Candy And A Currant Bun

Let's Roll Another One

Oh my girl sitting in the sky
Go buy candy and encouragement
I like to see you cry
Lay back

Oooh, don't talk to me
Please, just fuck with me
Please you know I'm feeling frail

Talk, talk, talk to me
Please just walk with me
Please no feeling frail

It's true sun's shining very bright
It's you I'm gonna love tonight
Ice cream tastes good in the afternoon
Ice cream tastes good if you eat it soon

Ooh, don't touch me child
Please - no !
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
Ver 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...

Oh my girl fading in the sun
Go buy a candy and a currant bun
I'm high! Don't try to spoil the fun
Go cry or I'll have another one

Ooh don't touch me child
Please, you know you drive me wild
Please, you know I'm feeling frail

Ooh don't talk to me
Please, just walk with me
Please, you know I'm feeling frail

It's true sun's shining very bright
It's you I'm gonna love tonight
Ice cream tastes good if you eat it right
Ice cream tastes good if you treat it right

Ooh don't talk to me
Please, you know you drive me wild
Please, you know I'm feeling frail

Oh my girl fading in the sun
Go buy a candy and a currant bun
I'm high don't try to spoil the fun
Go cry or I'll have another one
