From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Gnome" is a song by the English rock band Pink Floyd. Written by Syd Barrett, it is the eighth song on their 1967 debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.[1][2]

The song tells the tale of a scarlet tunic wearing gnome named Grimble Gromble (often incorrectly spelled Grumble). The lyrics ostensibly "came off the top [of Barrett's] head".[3] Reportedly, the song also draws its inspiration from J. R. R. Tolkien's fiction.[4] "The Gnome" was included on the B-side of the US Pink Floyd single "Flaming" (Tower 378), which was never released in the UK.

Cover versions

British actor Nigel Planer recorded this song as "Neil," his character in the UK sitcom The Young Ones, in 1984. It appeared on his Heavy Concept album.[5]
