"Golden Hair" as written by Frank Bridge and James Augustus Al Joyce....
Lean out your window
Golden hair
I heard you singing
In the midnight air

My book is closed
I read no more
Watching the fire dance
On the floor

I've left my book
I've left my room
I heard you singing
Through the gloom

Singing and singing
A merry air
Lean out of the window
Golden Hair

    General CommentThis song is actually a James Joyce poem. Barret wrote the music for it when he was only 16.

    I think the theme of the song is love, as are most songs on "the madcap laughs".

    General CommentI think he's describing being alone and then falling for a woman, and at that point that all you want is to be with that woman. By closing his book and leaving his room, he is setting out to be with her.
