"Have a Cigar" as written by and Roger Waters....
Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar
You're gonna go far, you're gonna fly
You're never gonna die
You're gonna make it if you try
They're gonna love you
Well I've always had a deep respect
And I mean that most sincere
The band is just fantastic
That is really what I think
Oh by the way, which one's pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
We call it 'riding the gravy train'

We're just knocked out
We heard about the sell out
You gotta get an album out
You owe it to the people
We're so happy we can hardly count
Everybody else is just green
Have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start
It could be made into a monster
If we all pull together as a team
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
We call it 'riding the gravy train'

    General CommentHowever, there are references to the mean record company,
    "We're just knocked out, we heard about the sell out.
    You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people.
    We're so happy we can hardly count."
    EMI insisting that they should "ride the gravy train" (capitalise on the situation at hand as long as one can) and get another album out. Pink Floyd did give them another great album, and Waters included this a surpise 'gift' for EMI! Only Waters can write things with so much of depth and subtlety!
