Leave, when I ask you to leave, Lucy
Please, far away from me, Lucy
Oh, go little girl
Seen, is (oh so) broken up about you, Lucy
Mean, treat me and done me harm, Lucy
Been, in love with you and your charms, Lucy
Oh, go little girl
I'm in love with you, Lucy

You got my heart
You got my heart, oh no!
You tear me apart
You just won't let me go
You hold on so tight, so tight I just can't breath
Now Lucy leave, Lucy

Leave, when I ask you to leave, little girl
Please, far away from me, little girl
Yeah! go little girl
Seen, is (oh so) broken up about you, Lucy
Yeah!
Go.

    General CommentThis is an early Barrett song recorded on the first demotape in late 1965. The band didnt have the name Pink Floyd yet and guitarist Bob Klose was part of the band at the time. The song has not been officially released. The demo version is released with an italian book from 1996.
    You can just download it from anywhere.

    Cute and Catchy song, I like it : )

    General Commentahahhahhahaha Wtazy13, you're a fucking idiot. Yes, Pink Floyd ARE a psychedelic rock band. This does not mean that ALL of there songs are heavily influenced by drugs. This very song is a demo recorded very, very early in their career, before even Syd himself had been heavily affected by drugs. It is a simple rock 'n' roll song. It is about wanting a relationship with a girlfriend to end, he still loves her, but she clings too tightly and demands way too much. Hard to misinterpret something as plain as this. Simple, but a great song.

    General Commenti think he is talking about LSD, Syd used lots of psychadelic drugs and i think he is telling how he loves it so much but at the same time, its killing him.

    Mean, treat me and done me harm, Lucy

    You got my heart, oh no!
    You tear me apart
    You just won't let me go
    You hold on so tight, so tight I just can't breath

    General CommentI don't believe the song was written about drugs (psychedelic or otherwise). I think that it was written as simply a bluesy love song, no more than it appears to be. However, I found out about this song because my best friend and I were talking about Pink Floyd, and she mentioned this song, and I said, "That title seems like it predicts something..." ("Lucy" is sort of a codeword we have for LSD.) She thought it was funny and so did I.

    So later I decided to read the lyrics, just to see if they could be interpreted as having some sort of drugs meaning. (Yes, I am in the habit of taking songs and interpreting them to have other meanings that they obviously didn't. Not always about drugs; just things that they suggest to me.) Sure enough, they did. My belief regarding the meaning of songs is that if you want to think a song is about something, then that's what it's about to you. If this song makes you think more of drugs than love, then that's what it means to you. If it doesn't particularly make you think of drugs and you think it is what it seems to be, then that's equally correct. I think that the meaning of songs is pretty much subjective, and that whatever you think of when you hear a song or read its lyrics, that's what it means to you.
