Wots…uh the Deal (Waters, Gilmour) 5:07

Heaven sent the promised land
Looks alright from where I stand
Cause I’m the man on the outside looking in

Waiting on the first step
Show where the key is kept
Point me down the right line because it’s time

To let me in from the cold
Turn my lead into gold
Cause there’s chill wind blowing in my soul
And I think I’m growing old

Flash the readies
Wot’s…uh the deal?
Got to make to the next meal
Try to keep up with the turning of the wheel.

Mile after mile
Stone after stone
Turn to speak but you’re alone
Million mile from home you’re on your own

So let me in from the cold
Turn my lead into gold
Cause there’s chill wind blowing in my soul
And I think I’m growing old

Fire bright by candlelight
And her by my side
And if she prefers we will never stir again

Someone said the promised land
And I grabbed it with both hands
Now I’m the man on the inside looking out

Hear me shout “Come on in,
What’s the news and where you been?”
Cause there’s no wind left in my soul
And I’ve grown old

About the Song

“Wot’s… Uh The Deal” is a contemplative song from Pink Floyd’s 1972 album “Obscured by Clouds,” displaying the band’s softer, more lyrical side. The track features acoustic guitars, piano, and harmonica, creating a folk-infused sound that stands in contrast to Pink Floyd’s typical psychedelic rock style.

“Wot’s… Uh The Deal,” with its introspective lyrics and mellow arrangement, showcases Pink Floyd’s reflective songwriting on their album “Obscured by Clouds.” The song, draped in a gentle melody, invites listeners to ponder the passage of time and the dreams that guide us through life.

David Gilmour’s soft vocals, accompanied by an equally tender acoustic guitar, set the tone for this introspective journey. The piano work by Richard Wright adds a poignant layer to the composition, while Nick Mason’s subtle percussion maintains a calm, steady pace. The harmonica interludes lend the track a classic, timeless quality.

Lyrically, the song questions the nature of success and the cost of personal ambition, with Roger Waters and Gilmour penning lines that resonate with anyone who has contemplated life’s fleeting opportunities and the deals we make with ourselves along the way.

With “Wot’s… Uh The Deal,” Pink Floyd offers a moment of solace and philosophical musing, a resonant pause that contrasts the existential questions posed in the album with a serene musical landscape.
