IThe Nile Song" is the second song from Pink Floyd's 1969 album, Soundtrack from the Film More. Many consider it one of the band's flirtations with hard rock, along with the 1979 track "Young Lust" (from The Wall) and 1983's "Not Now John" (from 1983's The Final Cut). It is written by Roger Waters and it is one of the few Pink Floyd's songs not featuring any keyboard. The track "Ibiza Bar" in the same album reprises almost the same theme. Andy Kellman of Allmusic describes "The Nile Song" as "one of the heaviest songs the band recorded". The harmonic progression gives a strain of modulations, beginning at A, and then rising a whole step with each repeat, cycling through six different keys, returning to the starting point of A, and continuing the pattern as the song fades out
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
