  • Lyrics
  • Released as the B-side of "Arnold Layne," this song was originally titled "Let's Roll Another One," and included the lyrics, "I'm high don't spoil my fun." But, the record company asked Syd Barrett to change the lyrics to something less controversial, which is strange because still even then, this was one of the first songs to include the word "f--k." >>
