"See-Saw" is a song from Pink Floyd's 1968 album A Saucerful of Secrets. It tells of a strangely troubled brother-sister relationship.[1][2]


It is the third Pink Floyd song written solely by Richard Wright, the second on the album as such, and features Wright on lead vocals and piano, Farfisa organ, xylophone and mellotron. On the recording sheet, the song is listed as "The Most Boring Song I've Ever Heard Bar Two".[3] David Gilmour uses a wah-wah pedal on his electric guitar and possibly contributes backing vocals.


In a review for A Saucerful of Secrets, Jim Miller of Rolling Stone described "See-Saw" as "a ballad scored vocally in a style incongruously reminiscent of Ronnie and the Daytonas."[4]
