Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Pigs (Three Different Ones) 11:30
     (written by Roger Waters)

Lyrics:
Big man, pig man
Ha ha, charade you are
You well-heeled big wheel
Ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying, 'Keep on diggin'
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find
Down in the pig mine?
You're nearly a laugh (2x)
But you're really a cry


Bus stop rat bag
Ha ha, charade you are
You fucked up old hag
Ha ha, charade you are
You radiate cold shafts of broken glass
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel
You're hot stuff with a hat pin
And good fun with a hand gun
You're nearly a laugh (2x)
But you're really a cry


Hey you, Whitehouse
Ha ha, charade you are
You house proud town mouse
Ha ha, charade you are
You're tryin' to keep our feelings off the street
You're nearly a real treat
All tight lips and cold feet
And do you feel abused?
You got to stem the evil tide
And keep it all on the inside
Mary you're nearly a treat (2x)
But you're really a cry



Whitehouse, mentioned in the third verse, is Mary Whitehouse, sometime head of the National Viewers and Listeners Association, and one of the most ardent campaigners for censorship of radio and television in England.
