Syd Stryp

Syd Barrett Cartoon Strip

This cartoon has been produced exclusively for I-SpySydInCambridge by award winning local illustrator, Tom Morgan-Jones. His work is widely and internationally published, from Children's books and magazines to satirical boardgames.

For more information see his website, Inky Mess.

It was inspired by the song Arnold Layne, the first single released by Pink Floyd (written by Syd Barrett).



I-SpySyd......,again in collaberation with Tom Morgan-Jones brings you our second Syd Stryp cartoon of See Emily Play (again written by Syd). Lyrics below.

See Emily Play

Emily tries but misunderstands, ah ooh
She's often inclined to borrow somebody's dreams till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for May
See Emily play

Soon after dark Emily cries,ah ooh
Gazing through trees in sorrow hardly a sound till tomorrow
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for May
See Emily play

Put on a gown that touches the ground,ah ooh
Float down a river forever and ever,Emily,Emily
There is no other day
Let's try it another way
You'll lose your mind and play
Free games for May
See Emily play
