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
