Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett

Just watched a documentary on Pink Floyd, featuring Syd Barrett's influence on the band. He was single handedly the driving force for the band at the beginning. Interestingly David Gilmour replaced Syd, but also became his close friend and looked out for him. At any rate, I had a look at Barrett's solo work and the work he did with Floyd at the beginning. Bike, which I took for a silly song, has quite a bit of depth as shown in the documentary. I can see young Syd trying to impress this girl.  I share the words with you all now.

I've got a bike 
You can ride it if you like 
It's got a basket 
A bell that rings 
And things to make it look good 
I'd give it to you if I could 
But I borrowed it 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world 
I'll give you anything 
Everything if you want things 

I've got a cloak 
It's a bit of a joke 
There's a tear up the front 
It's red and black 
I've had it for months 
If you think it could look good 
Then I guess it should 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world 
I'll give you anything 
Everything if you want things 

I know a mouse 
And he hasn't got a house 
I don't know why 
I call him Gerald 
He's getting rather old 
But he's a good mouse 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world 
I'll give you anything 
Everything if you want things 

I've got a clan of gingerbread men 
Here a man 
There a man 
Lots of gingerbread men 
Take a couple if you wish 
They're on the dish 
 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world 
I'll give you anything 
Everything if you want things 


I know a room full of musical tunes 
Some rhyme 
Some ching 
Most of them are clockwork 
Let's go into the other room and make them work
