Corporal Clegg Lyrics by Pink Floyd

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg
He won it in the war
in nineteen forty four

Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange, red and blue
He found it in the zoo

Dear, oh dear, oh are they really sad for me?
Dear, oh dear, oh will they really laugh at me?

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin

Corporal Clegg, umbrella in the rain
He’s never been the same
No one is to blame

Corporal Clegg recieved his medal in a dream
From her Majesty, the Queen
His boots were very clean

Missus Clegg, you must be proud of him
Missus Clegg, another drop of gin?

Corporal Clegg
Corporal Clegg
[…]
All right men — in you go!
[…]
Corporal Clegg

  1. A little more depth can be found on wikipedia, which I believe is better suited and more informative to those trying to better understand this album. It is the first mention of war in a Pink Floyd song, something that would become a common theme in Roger Waters’ lyrics, Roger having lost his father thus in 1944.
