Why isn't 'What Shall We Do Now' on the Album?

Partially reprinted from the Echoes FAQ
Lyrics to 'What Shall We Do Now.'

You can hear the full version in several places...

Originally, The Wall was supposed to include the song "What Shall We Do Now?," but this was cut because of time limitations. The change was made so late in the game that the album sleeves had already been printed, including the lyrics and the original order.

"What Shall We Do Now?" was to come right after "Goodbye Blue Sky," followed with "Empty Spaces" showing up later (before ABitW 3) as a sort of reprise.
