Yes, you are right of course. Actually Stay is the only Pink Floyd song where Roger and Rick corporatd in that way.

It's close, but not exactly the same as Stay. Because of a both Rick and David sings as duet Roger's lyric on Burning Bridges.

But "Burning Bridges", "Stay", and "Us and Them" are the only songs where Rick wrote all of the music and Roger wrote all of the lyrics, regardless of who sang them. I'm sure there are many others that were similarly written, but where Dave also contributed something to the music.

From an interview with Rick's ex-wife Franka:

''She rushed to see him on board his boat – only to find him entertaining a young blonde.‘She was wearing his shirt,’ Franka recalls. ‘I asked her how long their affair had been going on for and she stared at me, then slowly unbuttoned the shirt to show me her slightly rounded stomach. She was clearly pregnant. I was devastated.’ I had to leave Rick after I found him in bed with the pregnant groupie.’

I have a feeling that late Rick was no ‘angel’ as it is often considered among Pink Floyd fans. Maybe, Roger was right when he kicked him out from the band. :smt102

If time has proven anything, it's that Roger is usually wrong.

Rick the man whose few of Pink Floyd songs is about a groupies. Rick the man who was caught by a wife, in a bed with the pregnant groupie. Rick the man who ruthlessly consumed the cocaine during making of The Wall album. Is this an example of a reliable member of the band? Or, is it all just another sharade by the 'bad boy' Roger Waters?

Don't strain yourself.

"Paintbox" doesn't have anything to do with groupies, and the woman in the song is probably his wife Juliette, who sang on their earliest recordings, including "Walk With Me Sydney". She also co-wrote "Against the Odds" on his first solo album.

"Remember a Day", "See-Saw", "Point Me at the Sky", "Two of a Kind"...nope, no groupies.

Wasn't Roger the one that made a concept album about cheating on his wife?

Rick: "It would have been quite easy to say, 'Oh he left because he had a cocaine problem or a drink problem.' I can honestly say that it really was not a drug problem. It was taken without a doubt by Roger, me, Dave, Nick, Bob Ezrin, but purely socially, it wasn't lying around in the studio."
