"Have a Cigar (Pink Floyd cover)" as written by and Roger Waters....
Come on here, dear boy, have a cigar
You're gonna go far, fly high
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 sincerely
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 hell of a 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 CommentYeah, because Primus can't act like they're Floyd. Bob Cock was a guy that acted really annoying. He was used in their concerts, and he's in a few videos (Beginning of "Jerry", holding bagel dogs in "DMV", and he's in "My Name is Mud"). Also, he is in "Cheesy Home Video), Primus' little insider video dealy from the 90's.

    General Commentthey made the lyrics " Oh by the way, which one's Pink?" different due to the fact that in Pink Floyds version that line only applied to them. When they became so successful in America due to Dark Side of the Moon, when meeting american producers, they asked that question. Not knowing Pink Floyd was named after 2 bluesman and not a particular band member.

    General CommentWow, you hate Pink Floyd, yet you like this song. Pink Floyd\'s version is way better, but this one is pretty interesting. I loved the way they changed the lyrics a bit, as you folks were discussing earlier.

    General CommentActually, when he says "And who the hell's this guy they call Bob Cock?" he's referring to the guy who did the first recording for Primus on 'Suck on this!'. He's been a friend of Les's for a long time, and helped them get started.
