Shine On
A Saucerful of Secrets

Saucer is a transitional album, having three tracks which feature Syd Barrett and four featuring David Gilmour. The short-lived five piece line-up never made it into the recording studio. Most of the work was done at EMI in Studio 3, which probably means The Beatles were in Studio 2, the most technically advanced at that time. The track“Remember a Day” was recorded for “Piper at the Gates of Dawn” but was left off. “Jugband Blues” dated back to early December 1967 when it was recorded as a possible single. The free-form middle section of “Jugband” was played by six members of The Salvation Army that Syd brought into the studio. They deserve particular credit since it is believed that the only direction they were given was to play “whatthey wanted”.

The record is transitional in other ways, too. During work on “Saucerful,” the title track, mutterings were heard from the control room about the boys “having to get down to some serious work after this.” One could suggest that, if you hold this in view, the boys never got down to serious work ever again.

A Saucerful of Secrets
Let There Be More Light

Far far away
People heard him say
I will find a way
There will come a day
Something will be done
Then at last the mighty ship descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race at Mildenhall

Now is thetime
To be be be aware
Carter’s father saw it there
And knew the Rhull revealed to him
The living soul of Hereward the Wake

Oh my, something in my eye
Something in the sky
Waiting there for me
The outer lock rolled slowly back
The servicemen were heard to sigh
For there revealed in flowing robes was Lucy in the sky

Oh oh did you ever?
No no never ever will they
I´ll say!Summoning his cosmic power
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed

Remember A Day

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes

Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen you shall be if you wish
Look for your king

Why can’t weplay today?
Why can’t we stay that way?

Climb your favorite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother’s gun
Dream yourself away
Why can’t we reach the sun?
Why can’t we blow the years away?
Blow away

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves whichtremble at dawn
Lotus’s lean on each other in yearning
Over the hills a swallow is resting
Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine
Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Witness the man who waves at the wall
Making theshape of his question to heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Wet the controls for the heart of the sun
Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Corporal Clegg

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
He won it in the war
In nineteen forty four

Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange,red and blue
He found it in the zoo

Dear oh dear, oh are they really sad for me?
Dear oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me?

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?
Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He’s never been the same
No one is to blame

Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream
From her Majesty, the Queen
His boots were very clean...
