De 2e single van de groep en wederom een nummer 1 hit in de Top 40. "Homburg" bevat dezelfde surrealistische, droomachtige beelden en gevoelens van berusting en zinloosheid als in de debuutsingle. De muziek heeft ook Matthew Fisher's rijke en diepe Hammond orgel, maar de piano en gitaar hebben grotere plaatsen in het totale geluid. Het thema is niet zo duidelijk Bach-achtige zoals in "A Whiter Shade of Pale", desondanks, de single werd bekritiseerd omdat het te vergelijkbaar met zijn voorganger.

Songtekst

Your multilingual business friend
has packed her bags and fled
Leaving only ash-filled ashtrays
and the lipsticked unmade bed
The mirror on reflection
has climbed back upon the wall
for the floor she found descended
and the ceiling was too tall

Your trouser cuffs are dirty
and your shoes are laced up wrong
you'd better take off your homburg
'cos your overcoat is too long

The town clock in the market square
stands waiting for the hour
when its hands they both turn backwards
and on meeting will devour
both themselves and also any fool
who dares to tell the time
And the sun and moon will shatter
and the signposts cease to sign
