A Saucerful of Secrets Lyrics


A Saucerful of Secrets

Let There Be More Light

Let There Be More Light (Roger Waters)

Far, far, far, far away, way
People heard him say, say
I will find a way, way
There will come a day, day
Something will be done

Then at last the mighty ship
descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race
at Mildenhall

Now, now, now is the time, time, time
To be, be, be aware

Carter’s father saw it there
And knew the Rhull revealed to him
The living soul of Hereward the Wake

Oh my, something in my eye, eye
Something in the sky, sky
Waiting there for me

The outer lock rolled slowly back
The servicemen were heard to sigh
For there revealed in glowing robes
was Lucy in the sky

Oh, oh, did you ever
No, no, never ever will they
I’ll say

Summoning his cosmic power
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed

Remember A Day

Remember a Day (Richard Wright)

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes

Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen you shall be if you wish
Look for your king

Why can’t we play today
Why can’t we stay that way

Climb your favourite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother’s gun
Dream yourself away

Why can’t we reach the sun
Why can’t we blow the years away
Blow away
Blow away
Remember
Remember

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

Little by little the night turns around.
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn.
Lotus’s lean on each other in urning.
Over the hill the swallow is resting.
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Over the mountain watching the watcher.
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine.
Morning to birth is born into shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine.
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun.

Who is the man who arrives at the wall?
Making the shape of his questions at asking.
Thinking the sun will fall in the evening.
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun.

Corporal Clegg

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
He won it in the war
in nineteen forty four

Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange, red and blue
He found it in the zoo

Dear, oh dear, oh are they really sad for me?
Dear, oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me?

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin

Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He’s never been the same
No one is to blame

Corporal Clegg recieved his medal in a dream
From her Majesty, the Queen
His boots were very clean

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?

Corporal Clegg
Corporal Clegg
[…]
All right men — in you go!

See-Saw

Marigolds are very much in love, but he doesn’t mind
Picking up his sister, he makes his way into the seas or land
All the way she smiles
She goes up while he goes down, down
Sits on a stick in the river
Laughter in his sleep
Sister’s throwing stones, hoping for a hit
He doesn’t know so then
She goes up while he goes down, down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day

She’ll be selling plastic flowers on a Sunday afternoon

Picking up weeds, she hasn’t got the time to care
All can see he’s not there
She grows up for another man, and he’s down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave

Jugband Blues

It’s awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I’m most obliged to you for making it clear
That I’m not here

And I never knew the moon could be so big
And I never knew the moon could be so blue
And I’m grateful that you threw away my old shoes
And brought me here instead dressed in red

And I’m wondering who could be writing this song

I don’t care if the sun don’t shine
And I don’t care if nothing is mine
And I don’t care if I’m nervous with you
I’ll do my loving in the Winter

And the sea isn’t green
And I love the Queen
And what exactly is a dream?
And what exactly is a joke?
