STAND STILL WILL YE!
*this doesn't sound like bikesheds to me but that's what it says when you google the lyrics, anyone know what he says? it's bugged me pretty much my entire life
(oh and that's roger waters shouting that as well, who knew!)
It's never sounded like anything other than that to me, even without looking up the lyrics.
i posted here last night, fucking disappeared
to me it sounds like BENCHSHEDZ which isn't even a word
seriously can't hear 'bikesheds'
about The Wall. i wonder how many folk knew it was there/ spotted it while stoned etc back in the day.

"we came in" and the last words are "isn't this where". Que twilight zone music.
Maybe he was playing one of the other teachers.
nah roger has said it was him
just read this on some pink floyd fansite:
"Another Brick in the Wall part 2"
"You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds! Stand still laddy!"
This one causes a lot of controversy, particularly among people who don't understand the reference to bikesheds. "Behind the bikesheds" is a common British phrase for those things at school that take place outside the view of teachers. Stuff like smoking, drinking, a bit of ummagumma, etc.
Other suggestions have been "bedstead", "bikestand", and others. But again, the Walden Woods show is pretty decisive on this. (And what would a bedstead be doing in a school...?)
NOT JUST ME WHO THINKS IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE BIKESHEDS :)
I think I just accepted it as 'bikesheds'.
Belisha Beacon was something else I saw explained on a Radiohead lyrics site because it means nothing outside the UK. (The lyrics for the chorus of My Iron Lung mention it.)
