“See Emily Play” Lyrics by Syd Barrett ( 1967 )

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She often inclined to borrow somebody’s dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Soon after dark Emily cries, ah ooh
Gazing through trees in sorrow hardly a sound till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play
Put on a gown that touches the ground, ah ooh
Float on a river forever and ever, Emily
There is no other day
Let’s try it another way
You’ll lose your mind and play
Free games for may
See Emily play

    This fantastic title song sooooooooooooooo takes me back to good times , and so does your fabulous works of art man , that whole Floyd & Barrett so captivates with your fabulous portrayal

  • Syd was a genius and was more influential than what people give him credit for and “See Emily Play” was a very successful single at the time before poor Syd was fired from the group. I wonder how Pink Floyd would have sounded like later if Syd was allowed to stay on. We can only wonder.
    Always love reading your comments Paul. : D

  • Yes, and because no one understood poor Syd. “See Emily Play” was a very successful single at the time before he was fired from the group. I often wonder how Pink Floyd would have sounded like later if Syd was allowed to stay on. We can only wonder. “Baby Lemonade” was a great song Charlie. I believe it was a minor hit too.

    What a stunning piece John. Impact is instant with this and of course who doesn’t love this song by Syd.

  • The song is always in the top 100 greatest songs of all time according to music industry experts. I love the psychedelic intro, hooks you in straight away. Thank you Alice.

    Very nice! I love the colours and rendering is very 50’s somehow…I LOVE it! And the effect of the letters going over her face like that:) Very nice!

  • Many thanks Syd, I used the face of 60s icon Sandra Dee as a reference and who I knew personally. : D
