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, ev'rything 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, ev'rything 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, ev'rything 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, ev'rything 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

    General CommentOk, I really love this song. Until recently I just thought it was really random and stuff, but I was listening to it the other day and had an idea that made sense to me, it's probably wrong but I'm not bothered. I know it aint traditional for Floyd, but it sounds like kinda a love song? Like the guy is saying he doesn't have much, but what he's got the girl can have too. I know I'm wrong, it's just an opinion. And I love the fact that it's so English too.
