"The Gnome" is a song by British psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. It was written by the band's first leader, Syd Barrett. After the first few seconds that fade out of "Interstellar Overdrive," the song tells the tale of a gnome named Grimble Gromble. It appears on their debut album, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn".

The song also appeared on the b-side of the U.S. Pink Floyd single "Flaming" (Tower 378). This single was never released in the U.K.

Alternative and Live versions

The British actor Nigel Planer recorded this song under the name and pretext of Neil, his character in the UK sitcom "The Young Ones", in 1984. It appeared on his eponymous "Heavy Concept" album.
