"Arnold Layne" as written by and Syd Barrett....
Arnold Layne
Had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes
Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine

On the wall
Hung a tall mirror
Distorted view
See through baby blue
He done it, oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same,
It takes two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne

Now he's caught
A nasty sort of person
They gave him time
Doors bang, chain gang
He hates it
Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same
It takes two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne

Arnold Layne, don't do it again

    General CommentStrangely enough, stealing women's underwear from washing lines isn't that uncommon. In the UK they even have a name for it - snowdropping. Mind you, it's still theft, hence the jail time.
