Vegetable Man



Lyrics - Syd Barrett

Music - Syd Barrett


In yellow shoes I get the blues
Though I walk the streets with my plastic feet
There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
In my paisley shirt I look a jerk
And my turquoise waistcoat is quite out of sight
But oh oh my haircut looks so bad
Vegetable man how are you?

So I've changed my dear , and I find my knees
And I covered them up with the latest cut
And my pants and socks all point in a box
They don't make long of my nylon socks
They watch , black watch
My watch with a black face
And a big pin , a little hole
It's what I wear , it's what you see
It must be me , it's what I am
Vegetable man.

I've been looking all over this place for a place for me
But it ain't anywhere , it just ain't anywhere
Vegetable man , vegetable man
He's the kind of person , you just gonna see him if you can
Vegetable man.
