Pink Floyd The Nile Song - SICK Japanese 7"

Feast yer oooglies on this! Pink Floyd The Nile Song - a verrrrrry rare original 1969 Japanese 7" vinyl single also including Main Theme, wraparound picture sleeve with a color still from the film 'More' on the front, with Japanese notes inside and lyrics on the reverse. What's more, this is the still rarer 2nd sleeve variant with Main Theme credited on the front of the insert & the Japanese text moved to the bottom left with ¥500 over-stickered price mark.

If Pink Floyd had stayed in this vein they might have ended up like Black Sabbath! This song is heavy and demonstrates that the band could rock out with the best.

This 7" is fooking sick! I know that most of you would give your left nut, or tittie, for this!

Pink Floyd The Nile Song Lyrics:

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.
