"Candy and a Currant Bun" as written by and Syd Barrett....
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

    General CommentThe funny thing is that, if I remember right, the "Let's Roll Another One" version had "please just walk with me" instead of "please just fuck with me". So they got rid of some drug references, but added in an even more blatant sex reference. And apparently successfully slipped it by.

    General Commentyes that's true, but it's called "Let's Roll Another One"

    The old version is available on a number of bootlegs.

    General CommentThis really is the best bit of noise ever invented - along with Syds other songs, and any other songs by Syd, this is the best, really - although it might be just a little bit better. I think I have a version off a radio broadcast and the mental bit after the second 'frail' is just ace.

    General CommentWhat do these lines mean?:

    "Don't try another cat
    Don't go where other you must know why
    Very very very frail"

    General Commentshakeymango, your friend is right, they wanted to name this song "lets roll another one" but they couldnt because the meaning was to obvious that is was about pot smoking. so the BBC told them they had to change the title and lyrics. it was on the B-side of the arnold layne single and had lyrics like"tastes right if you eat it right"
