  • Oh, my girl sitting in the sky
    Go buy candy and a currant bun
    I like to see you run
    Lay back

    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, I'm gonna love tonight
    Ice cream tastes good in the afternoon
    Ice cream tastes good if you eat it soon

    Don't touch me child
    Please, 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 Writer/s: SYD BARRETT
