Have a Cigar — Quintessential Pink Floyd. I have soooo many favorites. Welcome to the Machine is on the list as one of the best songs on one the best albums of all time. It’s all about those haunting and distant guitar rifs that beckon us to get closer to the speakers – begging for more. And the lyrics? Truly amazing – 2 lost souls swimming in a fishbowl…. OR Can you tell, a smile from a veil……?

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’
