The Nile Song
(Waters) 3:26

I was standing by the Nile
When I saw the lady smile.
I would take her out for a while,
For a while.

Oh, my tears wept like a child.
How her golden hair was blowing wild.
Then she spread her wings to fly,
For to fly.

Soaring high above the breezes,
Going always where she pleases.
She will make it to the islands in the sun.

I will follow in her shadow
As I watch her from my window.
One day I will catch her eye.

She is calling from the deep,
Summoning my soul to endless sleep.
She is bound to drag me down,
Drag me down.

About The Song

“The Nile Song” is a song by Pink Floyd, featured on their 1969 album “More”. The song is a departure from the band’s usual psychedelic sound, featuring a heavy, blues-inspired riff and aggressive vocals from front-man David Gilmour. The lyrics describe a sense of primal desire and violence, with lines like “I was standing by the Nile / When I saw the lady smile / I would take her for a while / For a while.” The song is notable for its raw, distorted guitar sound and driving rhythm section, and it stands out as one of the band’s more hard-edged and intense tracks.
