Arnold Layne
Had a strange hobby
Collecting clothes
Moonshine washing line
They suit him fine

On the wall hung
A tall mirror
Distorted view
See through baby blue
He dug it
Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same
Takes two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Two to know
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne

Now he's caught
A nasty sort
Of person
They gave him time
Doors bang
Chain gang
He hates it

Oh, Arnold Layne
It's not the same
Takes do it now
Do it now
Do it now
Do it now
Why can't you see?

Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Arnold Layne
Don't do it again
