Let's Roll Another One

Let's Roll Another One  3:03
Performed live 14 October 1966 
* Unrecorded
     (written by Syd Barrett)

Lyrics (incomplete):
Tastes right if you eat it right
Let's roll another one

Lead Vocals: Syd Barrett

An early piece, Let's Roll Another One — Syd's ode to pot-smoking — was rewritten and released under the title Candy and a Currant Bun (see entry under that name). The only surviving recording of this song is so poor it is scarcely audible, and may not be genuine in any case. The lyrics come from Nick Mason's usually reliable recollection, and are corroborated by Roger Waters.

Roger Waters: "It had lines in it like 'Tastes right if you eat it right.' The BBC didn't like that at all - nor did a lot of other people - so the lyrics and title had to be changed."

  1. Bell bottom trousers became popular in the 1960s because young people often bought cheap clothes from Army-Navy surplus stores, and there were ample supplies of Navy bell-bottoms to be had after WWII. Once professional designers caught on, bell-bottoms were all over everywhere and everyone had them.
