"Corporal Clegg" as written by and Roger Waters....
Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
He won it in the war, in 1944
Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange, red, and blue
He found it in the zoo

Dear, dear, were they really sad for me?
Dear, dear, will they really laugh at me?

Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him
Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin

Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He's never been the same
No one is to blame
Corporal Clegg received his medal in a dream
From Her Majesty the queen
His boots were very clean

Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him
Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin

    General Commenti think this song is pretty good, its about a veteran and what he has to go trough after the war, he isnt appreciated, he is scared for life, its a sad song, at first i thougtht "what where they on when they wrote this song" but the more i listened to it the more i liked it
