Stanley the simpleton
He's not to blame
Never be a genius
And it's quite a shame
Stanley the simpleton
Simpleton ways
Simpleton mind and
Simpleton brain

    General CommentCould be the first song Syd Barrett wrote for Pink Floyd. It was recorded as a demo in Thompson Private Recording Studio, 1966. The song can be found on the bootleg: 'Stoned Alone', recorded in Starclub, Copenhagen, September 13, 1967. The song later changed into Let's Roll Another One/Candy And A Currant Bun
    The Lyrics and music were both by Syd Barrett.

    General CommentThis is not a Syd song, it's been proven a hoax. Check any Syd/PF site to verify. Nonetheless, as Roger Waters said of Pink Floyd's post-Waters Momentary Lapse of Reason album, it's a "clever forgery."
