Pink Floyd released a song titled, Pigs (Three Different Ones), on their 1977 album, Animals.
The album was primarily the work of Roger Waters with little input from other group members other than David Gilmour, who helped write the music for Dogs.
These altered lyrics are set to the flow and cadence of Pink Floyd's Pigs. These lyrics describe each of my three children.
(S., boy aged 12)
Sam-man bright ham - Ha ha hurrah you are
You thin spin toy boy - Ha ha hurrah you are
How do you make me smile while I sigh?
You're clearly a real joy
Confusion, laughs, and flash noise
Clever sharp spills of nonsense
Deep distant stares when you think
Wreckless and thoughtless aim - But do we try to tame?
Short hugs and short shrugs
You're clearly a joy
You're clearly a joy - But you're really a try
(M., boy aged 14)
School ground game hound - Ha ha hurrah you are
You best-try shy-guy - Ha ha hurrah you are
In competition you glow your very best
And that's clearly a real joy
Proud parents can enjoy
Success, contests, but cold stress
Com’on kid you're doing fine
Always trying hard to please - Now can you sit at ease?
Trade your tense depth for deep breaths
You're clearly a please
You're clearly a please - But you're really a try
(B., girl aged 20)
Numb hub art spark - Ha ha hurrah you are
You mood shift bluff heart - Ha ha hurrah you are
Vivid colors tattoo your eyes; but you is gray?
Your smile's a real treat. Sunlit, innocent, and soft sweet
You're a cool drink feigning a faint wink
Barefoot inner self
You slight advice and roll the dice - So do you have beginner's luck?
Your smile's a real treat
You're nearly complete
You're nearly complete - But you're really a try
