Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
And when your hand is on your heart
You're nearly a good laugh,
Almost a joker,
With your head down in the pig bin,
Saying, "Keep on digging."
Pig stain on your fat chin.
What do you hope to find?
Down in the pig mine.
You're nearly a laugh,
You're nearly a laugh,
But you're really a cry.

Bus stop rat bag, ha ha charade you are.
You fucked up old hag, ha ha charade you are.
You radiate cold shafts of broken glass
You're nearly a good laugh,
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel,
You're hot stuff with a hat pin,
And good fun with a hand gun.
You're nearly a laugh,
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.

Hey you, Mary Whitehouse, ha ha charade you are.
You house proud town mouse, ha ha charade you are.
You're trying to keep our feelings off the street
You're nearly a real treat,
All tight lips and cold feet,
And do you feel abused?

You gotta stem the evil tide,
And keep it all on the inside,
Mary you're nearly a treat,
Mary you're nearly a treat
But you're really a cry.

Between RP and WFMU this is the kind of song that never gets played on the radio anymore
 
WFMU!  I listened to it in the 70s when I lived in northern NJ.  Still have a t-shirt.  Cool then.  Probably cool now.
Top 1 album of my entire life !
play it more often please :-)
I liked Animals when it came out, but I still think it's unfair on the animals to compare them with hunan scumbags. Pigs, for instance, are cool, sociable, and intelligent.

As great as all the Pink Floyd records around this one are, and even though the theme of the album is kind of programmed, the music is so good all the way through that I sometimes think this is the best of all.  Listen to the bass solo over the top of the organ part.  Makes me feel like I wasn't really wrong back in my teen years when we "pressure cooked" in the car and got carried away by the power of this music.   
 
I can confirm that you WERE NOT wrong getting stoned then or now.....live free and fuck governments telling you what YOU can and can't do!!  Long Live RP!!  Long Live Freedom and Liberty!! 
Cowbell coulda been louder in the mix!

The reason this song (and Sheep) rock so hard is that the "bass solo over the top of the organ part" is played by David Gilmour instead of Roger Waters.  Waters is a great writer, but Gilmour can play circles around him.

From Wikipedia:

David Gilmour – lead guitar, co-lead vocals, rhythm and acoustic guitar on "Dogs", bass guitar on "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" and "Sheep", talk box on "Pigs (Three Different Ones)"Roger Waters – lead and harmony vocals, acoustic guitar on "Pigs on the Wing", rhythm guitar on "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" and "Sheep", tape effects, vocoder, bass guitar on "Dogs"Nick Mason – drums, percussion, tape effectsRichard Wright – Hammond organ, Farfisa organ, EMS VCS 3, electric piano, Minimoog, ARP string synthesizer, grand piano, clavinet, harmony vocals on "Dogs"

One of the best songs of all times, great guitar, imagery, vocals, sound effects and great production value with 3-D imaging of all instruments.  
Probably my favorite PF album, I love how angry it is in lyrics and in the music.  Gilmour is killing it on this album, and Waters is so pissed off, you can feel the rage.
Between RP and WFMU this is the kind of song that never gets played on the radio anymore
Fantastic song from a fantastic band

I would agree. Often times I tell people if I were stranded on a deserted island with only an MP3 player and one album, it would be this one. It just never gets old.

I do wonder what George Orwell would think of today's Neo-Marxist guided authoritarian populist regimes -- Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, to some extent Argentina, Zimbabwe, Republic of South Africa.  The wealth destruction has been massive.   The opportunity cost relative to potential has been absolutely gigantic.

And for all the PF fans, how cool is it that they put out so much varied music and yet kept a few cool concepts in all their albums?  Like the cyclical album, starting and ending with the same motif/song/sound....so effin cool to my ears and mind.  Long Live RP!!  and maybe PEACE too??!!!

ahhh...1977 19yrs old and Shrooooms,  my fav pf album!{#Bananajam}{#Bananapiano}
When this album was first released as a digital download on Amazon, you could buy the individual tracks for $1 each, which was cheaper than purchasing the album, since the entire album contains only 5 tracks. They have since fixed that issue.

Also, I noticed Amazon has a Remastered version of this album scheduled for release on Dec. 31, 2039!
The album was just released and we'd camped out for tix. The day before the show we went down and talked to the roadies who were setting up.
"Oh there's this flying pig..."

Woah.

Waters is right on with this song and has been for years. The guy is a musical genius. For a good laugh go take a look at NY Daily News headline today .🤡

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters wars with Hamptons neighbors
 

If good fences make good neighbors, Roger Watersof Pink Floyd fame needs to put another brick in the wall — the wall he should build around his property in the Hamptons, that is.

The legendary British rocker has been at war for three years over a right-of-way that gives his neighbors on Quimby Lane access to Sag Pond.

The trouble started when Ben Krupinski, the contractor hired by Waters and his beautiful wife, Laura Durning, began building a 14,000-square-foot house with a swimming pool, a pool house and a sunken tennis court.

Krupinski started driving trucks and bulldozers down the right-of-way, so neighbors put a chain across the lane. But Krupinski tore down the chain and paved the right-of-way, turning it into Waters’ driveway.

One neighbor claims a 15-foot hedge was ripped out, and $50,000 damage was done to his gardens, irrigation and in-ground lighting.

“We went to court, and the judge issued an order blocking him from using the illegal road he built,” a neighbor told me.

“Waters has shown no respect or interest in his neighbors and has taken aggressive action to satisfy his convenience — not waiting for the court to evaluate the litigation he initiated.”

But a friend of Waters told me of the neighbor, “This guy is crazy and wrong and sad . . . He’s looking to start some propaganda campaign based on nothing factual . . . He has been a nightmare for no legal reasons, and we’ve patiently put up with him.”

How ironic that Waters has become what he sang against:  an anti-semite, bully pig man.  Ha ha charade you are, Waters!

 
Anti-semite?    Are you kidding?    

Banned, you might support the Israeli ethnic cleansing project.   You are clearly a terrorist because without terror, the Israeli nation state would never have seen the light of day. 

Besides, the Arabs are also a Semitic people.  

Half a century of military occupation with the frequent use of Nazi-like tactics......  

There is no free lunch when it comes to using violence to take land and resources.   I have counted close to 30,000 Americans who have died directly and indirectly because of US support for the Israeli nation building process. 

My willingness to pay for the annexation and cleansing of East Jerusalem and the West Bank with American lives is zero.   

How many Americans lives are you willing to sacrifice for the glory of Israel?  

As for Roger Waters, I do not agree with his refusal to play Israel but I do believe he recognizes the Israeli state despite its controversial terrorist beginnings. 
The house proud town mice are the worst.

You seem to be claiming that it *was* about Nixon because people misunderstood the lyrics.  Surely that's not what you mean.

I'm somewhat surprised the administration isn't trying to trump up (pun slightly intended) charges for the performance.

In other news, if you have a chance to catch the show and either 1) agree with Waters's perspective or 2) can objectively sit by whilst Waters expresses himself during Pigs (Three Different Ones) and Money, I would say definitely catch it. Helluva show.

Wish I was older back then and lived on the *other* side of the Iron Curtain, so I could see these legends In the Flesh (yes, pun intended ;) ). I still vividly remember the day when, in the '90s, at the end my first trip to London, I was on the train from Victoria to Gatwick and the iconic Battersea Power Station ( https://goo.gl/maps/GUxRQYsQnfx ) suddenly appeared in front of my eyes! "Dumbstruck" isn't even close to how I felt! You should have seen the utterly puzzled faces around me when I scrambled for my (film) camera and I started to frantically snap one picture after another! 

This is one song and album I would definitely choose to preserve for eternity. Or if I was Marooned, On an Island. (ok, enough PF wordplay!)
 
Point 3 (.3) ?

You are not alone, my favorite of the many great PF albums. I also consider it their last.
