Matilda Mother (Pink Floyd)


There was a king who ruled the land
His majesty was in command
With silver eyes, the scarlet eagle
Showers silver on the people

Oh Mother, tell me more
Why'd you have to leave me there
Hanging in my infant's air waiting
You only have to read the lines
They're scribbly black and everything shines

Across the stream with wooden shoes
Bells to tell king the news
A thousand misty riders climbing
Higher once upon a time

Wandering and dreaming
Words have different meaning
Yes they do

For all the time spent in that room
The doll's house, darkness, old perfume
And fairy sories held me high on
Clouds of sunlight floating by

Oh Mother, tell me more
Tell me more
