If you saw Pink Floyd at Live8 and wondered what all the fuss was about, then your instincts were right. Pink Floyd are one of those bands that even their fans have to make excuses for.

Lucifer Sam, siam cat.
Always sitting by your side
Always by your side.
That cat's something I can't explain.
There was a king who ruled the land
His majesty was in command
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle
Showers silver on the people
Alone in the clouds all blue
Lying on an eiderdown
You can't see me
I want to tell you a story
About a little man
If I can
A gnome named Grimble Grumble
A movement is accomplished in six stages
And the seventh brings return
The seven is the number of the young light
It forms when darkness is increased by one
The black and green scarecrow as everyone knows
Stood with a bird on his hat and straw everywhere.
He didn't care.
He stood in a field where barley grows.
