Syd Barret wrote the musical arrangements of this lyrics when he was 15. The lyrics are originally from a poem in "Chamber Music" by James Joyce (1907). Initially the song was thought as a part of the album "The piper at the gates of down" by Pink Floyd, but it wasn't so because it was too different from the rest of the songs. So it appeared only later in the Syd Barret album "A madcap laughs"
You can listen the song here
Lean out your window, golden hair
I heard you singing in the midnight air
my book is closed, I read no more
watching the fire dance, on the floor
I've left my book, I've left my room
For I heard you singing through the gloom
singing and singing, a merry air
lean out the window, golden hair...
