Matilda Mother Lyrics - Pink Floyd

Review The Song (4)

There was a king who ruled the land.
His majesty was in command.
With silver eyes, the scarlet eagle
showered silver on the people,
Oh Mother, tell me more.

Why'd you have to leave me there
hanging in my infant air, waiting?
You only have to read the lines of
scribbly black and everything shines.

Across the stream with wooden shoes,
bells to tell the King the news.
A thousand misty riders
climb up higher once upon a time.

Wondering and dreaming.
The words have different meanings...
Yes they did...

For all the time spent in that room,
the doll's house, darkness, old perfume,
and fairy stories held me high
on clouds of sunlight floating by.
Oh Mother, tell me more...
Tell me more...

I saw a "Dollhouse" ad for a clothing company... | Reviewer: AMZ | 2/10/12

And this song glued into my head. I must have heard it hundreds of times now since 1994 or so. Amazingly unique and brilliant, along with everything Syd ever put out. His solo albums are remarkably awesome as well, and solidly put together, despite some shoddy production on a few tracks due to his old bandmates. A legend. I've shed tears for his loss. RIP.

One of the best songs of the 60s! It's hard to tell exactly what Syd intended it to mean though.

If you like Floyd and want to hear a little more of Old Floyd and Syd, you should really check out "An Introduction to Syd Barrett" David Gilmore just released it in 2010, and it has remastered versions of all of Syd's best.... Both before and after his Acid Overdose.

For those that don't know, Syd Barret started Floyd, and this is his song. He left shortly afterwards. "Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, and The Wall" all about his life and music career, though all were released.. After his departure.

If you already knew all this, well then this post wasn't meant for you =]

underrated | Reviewer: Stephen | 4/8/10

Its absolutely amazing how so many so called pink floyd fans i meet have no idea about anything else they created other than dark side and the wall. Obscured by clouds, piper at the gates of down, live at pompeii on and on... when i was a kid(only 19 now) i never thought anyone could top the beatles. gotta admit ill take the pink floyd anyday over anyone, and all this is with roger basically controlling the show. the talent this group had is in my mind unmatched for all eternity. i imagine ill hear them at the gates of heaven one day. peace

an esential for the archive | Reviewer: genevieve joly | 3/2/07

even though pink floyd is known for Dark side of the moon and the wall it is esential to see all of what Pink floyd was thoughout their entire span in the musical world and this song exeplifies that
