See Saw
(Wright) 4:36

Marigolds are very much in love, but he doesn’t mind
Picking up his sister, he makes his way into the seas or land
All the way she smiles
She goes up while he goes down, down
Sits on a stick in the river
Laughter in his sleep
Sister’s throwing stones, hoping for a hit
He doesn’t know so then
She goes up while he goes down, down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day

She’ll be selling plastic flowers on a Sunday afternoon

Picking up weeds, she hasn’t got the time to care
All can see he’s not there
She grows up for another man, and he’s down
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave
Another time, another day
Another time, another day
A brother’s way to leave

About the Song

“See Saw” is a song by Pink Floyd that was released on their 1968 album, “A Saucerful of Secrets.” The song features lyrics written by Richard Wright, who also composed the music.

“See Saw” is a dreamy and melancholic song that reflects on the ups and downs of a romantic relationship. The lyrics describe the narrator’s feelings of uncertainty and confusion as they struggle to understand the emotions of their partner. The chorus of the song, which repeats the phrase “She goes up while he goes down,” emphasizes the theme of unpredictability and instability.

Musically, “See Saw” features a gentle and mellow sound, with Richard Wright’s keyboards providing the main instrumental backdrop. The song also features a prominent bass line, played by Roger Waters, and a subtle drum part by Nick Mason. The vocals, performed by Wright and David Gilmour, are delivered in a soft and soothing style that complements the dreamy atmosphere of the music.

“See Saw” is a notable example of Pink Floyd’s early psychedelic and progressive rock style, which was characterised by a strong emphasis on mood and atmosphere. The song’s introspective lyrics and gentle, melancholic melody make it a memorable and emotionally affecting piece of music.
