Foo Fighters - Have A Cigar Lyrics




Come over here boy, have a cigar.
You're gonna go far, you're gonna fly high,
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 sincerely.
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.

And did we tell you the name of the game, boy?
We call it Riding the Gravy Train.

Foo Fighters Have A Cigar Comments
  1. -Bear -

    "FOO-FLOYD" Sounds great!!

  2. Gillybeanz

    I love you Pink Floyd !!!! Amazing remake FFs’ ! ❣️❣️

  3. Kerry McCullough

    Life long Floyd fan here, hearing this cover for the first time, and I love it.

  4. Thelema

    Sounds like Soundgarden's The Day I Tried To Live

  5. Bryan Gleason

    Wow that was one of the worst guitar solos I have ever heard

  6. 2smoker64

    Grohl, ur the man, great cover but not as good as the OG or the primus cover, missing that chill funk that made this song so amazing

  7. Mike Grant

    It is what it is, a band covering a song they love and doing it bloody well!! I like it!

  8. RShCovers

    Butchered

  9. Eric Maher

    Somehow doesn't sound like Dave Grohl

  10. Al Yee

    Chevy Metal!!!

  11. Dorian Edwards

    Some people don't understand, this stuff, these songs from the Floyd are like classical music. They are meant to be interpreted again and again by various groups. It's the song, the song, that matters, not who plays it. The SONG will live forever. We need more groups to do their version of DSOTM and WYWH ......

  12. Diana Ritchie

    There is no comparison to pink Floyd's music most original ever no one can sound like them
    This is 1st time hearing your band I'll check out other videos soon I'm older stuck back in the days many decades ago so no offence or nothing other that sounds good

  13. catynna nieto

    this souynd track is pink floy6 the beast sounjd track

  15. XBettie Page

  16. Kaz-Vos

    Awesome song!!


    Love the thumb nail by the way, nice touche

    Kaz-Vos

    Foo Fighters and Les Claypool from Primus should do a cover together LIVE!! Just over powering one another, for like ever!

  17. Bryce Schneider

    Dissapointing

  18. enrico moretti

    Love it

  19. Neil Parmar

    And did we tell you the name of the game boy? We call it Riding the Gravy Train.

  20. Jannan44

    Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar.
    You're gonna go far,
    You're gonna fly high,
    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 sincerely.
    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.
    Everyone 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

  21. frederik andries

    Creative 👍

  22. Canal Zitto

    Tash sultan

  23. edward kent

    everytime they try and cover something.......it becomes an awful sterile version of the original................................

  24. Fred L.

    I really like the Food but this is a bad cover

    william altman

    Fred L. Fuck you

  25. maximvs degeneratvs

    This sucks unwashed moose balls.

  26. Benjamin Scott SNEAKER JAMZ

    This is dope and awesome!!!!

  27. Thiago Silva

    Foo Fighters have the great power of turning anything into shit.

  28. José Luis Sandoval Mena

    Good Cover, but i like more Primus!

  29. The Focus Mode

    Dave's voice ruins this cover attempt!

  30. Good Guy Gary

    Drummer boy trying to cover the legends, don't do that if you can't do it better.

  31. Michael Ayliffe

    A cover has to take a sing away and own it, this is owning it. Its not if Syd would like it, but a new..
    I love it

    Michael Suder

    Michael Ayliffe who cares what Syd would like? Floyd wouldn't have had the sound that sold over 225 million without him. He's just a co founder - nothing more.

  32. Christian Iten

    This Version is much rockier than the Original. Still doesn't touch the Real One. It's just too good :)

  33. Felipe Martinez

    Bro I love it.

  34. Lourdes Torres de Rojas

    I like it! you are so right 0foofighter0

  35. Brewer 91

    👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎 leave this to Pink Floyd!!! There's only one Pink Floyd!!

  36. TEA M.

    najsssssssssssssss

  37. Thejazazho Medom

    Crap cover.

  38. Joe Blow

    I'm sorry this song should have never been replicated. Pink Floyd should never be replicated.This is crap.

  39. Dalton Jabs

    Taylor kinda sounds like henry rollins here

  40. Fred Summerhays

    Love Pink Floyd,had this on vynil back in the day.I am 59 years old.Strictly my opinion,really enjoyed it.Like Foo Fighters for their work.Love the cover of Pink,which one was he?

  41. Manu Albornoz

    me la re como

  42. No Comps

    If you don't like this version, you should have a whole bag of dick cigars

  43. Yarp Kibbelz

    Dude... this sucks!

  44. Gorillazsergio

    Lol, the description xD Chill man xD

  45. zman72k

    You can't sing this song.. stick with your music Fooo

  46. gig in the sky

    how to rape a song

  47. Gordon Wright

    Amazing cover.....also Brian may on lead guitar

  48. Kharid-Tendrass minecraft

    great cover .... and by the way which ones pink?

  49. 5A8R3

    lol its not bad, except for the solo, seriously.....

  50. Noah Bathgate

    This is a good cover but nothing will beat gilmour’s solo

  51. Joe Schmoe

    Its better than the live Roger Waters version.. His vocals do sound a little like Sam Kinison..The music is what I expect from a foo interpretation.. Honestly.. Play it again and let Dave G sing it. Im 50/50 on this one.

  52. S MacFarlane

    I prefer this to Floyd's!

  53. vladimir dosljak

    This isn't dave...

  54. Tardis Blue

    No clue david grohl liked pink floyd

  55. Susan Miller

    I love it!

  56. Alexander Salmas

    "ALSO if like so many people think Pink Floyd is "untouchable" why do you have such high expectations of the song"

    What?

  57. Montoya

    Lesson learned. DO NOT TRY TO COVER PINK FLOYD EVER!!!

  58. Alfaz Adam

    Oh by the way, which one's foo?

  59. sirkorndogg

    you can notice Brian May into the mix... not sure Stahl would've been up to the task.....

  60. Gaby Ga

    Obviamente es insuperable la versión original con Pink Floyd y Roy Harper, pero esta suena muy chido \m/

  61. uncrownedoak

    Covers aren't meant to be better than the original. Duh! They're called covers, not 1-ups! Also known as tributes.

  62. Adam Bouaazzi

    This sounds like Janes Addiction this is lit

    D-George Jempty

    It's got the riff from Mountain Song

  63. McGregor Satterwhite

    Would've loved to hear Dave cover it. Damn.

  64. Leo Cervantes

    es mejor la versión original de pink floyd

  65. Manoel Ferraz

    Drum line that they made for this cover sounds very similar to Nirvana's Scentless Apprentice.

  66. Matthew Henderson

    love the vocals

  67. dickersonforever

    I love it, I'm a floyd's fan, please cover all the Wish you were here.
    :D

  68. Nicolas Orellana

    horrible la wea

  69. Talking Vegetable

    Pretty fuckin cool

  70. Benny Van De Locht

    And by the way, which one is pink...

  71. Benny Van De Locht

    This version is way cool, and Pink Floyd is waaaaaay different. Foo Fighters did it right, the way they would do it. It creates a new Foo Fighter sound in some way if you ask me... very nice. I love it.

  72. Bacon Enthusiasts

    I like this version

  73. Sean Follett

    It is neither Foo nor Floyd. Re title the video or expect criticism.

  74. JPT

    Nah I didn't like it

  75. Shadow Serpent

    Really good! But quick question - why is the song called "Have a Cigar" I don't see any revelence to the song?

    Dustin Schings

    The very first line of the song; "Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar. you're gonna go far"

  76. james dreck

    Loud guitar bullshit ruined the song. I like the Foo Fighters, but let's face it, they're no Pink Floyd!

    the wasted one

    james dreck pretty sure they will just be covering the song because they like it, i dont think they are trying to be pink floyd but i know what you mean

    R R

    james dreck Confusion…

    FAH Q

    Nope, they're not and don't need to be. Pink Floyd is one of my all time favorites and I'm just as happy we, as fans, have the foo fighters to rock out to as well.

  77. Ricardo Castillo Sandoval

    they only managed to offer a gringo-version to this magnificent song

  78. Michael Hill

    I'm not a Foo Fighters fan and I am a big Pink Floyd fan so I thought I would hate this, but I was so wrong. This is well worth a listen.

  79. Uncouth Behavior

    And did we tell you the name of the game boiiiiiiii

  80. Uncouth Behavior

    Damn Taylor is a good singer! Man he really gives Dave some competition in the band - both drummers and evidently Taylor can be a vocalist too

  81. Rick

    Butchers

  82. роман служебный

    We're so happy we can hardly count.

  83. Alicia Coleman

    comparada con la versión original. ... suena muy extraña .... muy salvaje. .. no digo que mal pero me gusta mas la original :v.....esta no :v

    Wi Sh

    Está no está tan mal, pero obvio me quedo con la de Pink. Esto está muy heavy. :")))

    Alicia Coleman

    A mi no me gusto en lo personal X"D

    Wi Sh

    Hahahaha, La verdad, que no me gusta, xd

  84. Calos Alberto Vera Salazar

    Que agarren a estos asesinos, le pegaron una chinga a esta buena canción, la versión de primus se la lleva de calle.

    Alicia Coleman

    cierto :^

  85. D-George Jempty

    Why does this say "Pink Floyd Cover" and not also "Jane's Addiction Cover"?

    Dalton

    Cuz no one cares about janes addiction

    D-George Jempty

    Well thats just like totally your opinion man. Anyway I was being a bit tongue in cheek, but is unmistakenly the riff from Jane's Addiction "Mountain Song" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kAIMlISHhU. Pretty sure that means the Foo Fighters themselves care about Jane's Addiction, and I'll take their opinion over yours any day. And that additional riff makes this one of the greatest covers of a rock song ever in my opinion. I hate the unimaginative ones that are essentially note for note.

  86. Zaeden Hillenbrand

    This song is amazing.

  87. joshua hendrickson

    taylor Hawkins can actually sing pretty good

  88. KostaF64

    Very good cover. The band is just fantastic that is really what I think...

    DaWest

    Which one's Pink?

    Ezekiel Rosales

    DaWest there's a tribute band called "Which one's Pink?" pretty damn good!

    Ry Hardman

    KostaF64 ace band covering a ace band!!

    Mike Northrup

    .....which one's foo?

    catynna nieto

    i Loved cover Taylor 😘 beautiful voice

  89. K B

    wow... great respect to pink Floyd.... however this rendition is even better

    XxblazexX13

    wow u must have no taste in music! this is legit the worst cover in history

    K B

    +Jesse james mate first you have no right to question my taste. OK now on topic, the original song was by Pink Floyd which had different pitch and depth and literally no distortion and I loved it. However this cover version brings out the better through assertiveness and amazing vocals which match and follows the new tune. Yes some people will always love old stuff but I see the newness in it and find it better since this song let me to the original number. Though I respect others opinion who like the original number better unlike some who just hate newness. Well I seriously suggest to broader ur horizon of the music as it will not hurt anyone. Long live Foo Floyd 😉

    joshua hendrickson

    listen to the one dave is singing. this one is taylor hawking

    Tardis Blue

    XxblazexX13 .... No comment

  90. Neal Schuster

    Damn dude, not the biggest fan of it in thinking of it as a Floyd cover but if I forget that it's badass! Lol plus Taylor's vocals are pretty great

  91. Master Sherpa

    no no no no no please I'm begging you please no.

  92. Tyler woodring

    I like the aggression added. the guitar strums feels like they end too soon but it's not much of a problem.

  93. St. Francis

    Not trying to hate but this sounds like shit.

  94. Kenneth Geiger II

    primus made this song epic...but even when pink Floyd did it it was like a cover ...hats off to Roy Harper for vocals ;)

    Ryan Taladay

    the original is the best. I do like what les Claypool did with it. this is kinda bad

    No Comps

    Kenneth Geiger II primus sucks donkey dick

  95. FRANNY

    This is treasonous and bloidy awful guitar playing he should be shot on sight..

  96. Sisanja Engel

    Taylor is simply amazing! I love his voice! He also sang at the Kennedy Center of Honors for Led Zeppelin. So great.

  97. Armand Azharan

    i love this one actually

  98. Mackanvafan

    I love Foo Fighters, but holy crap, the guitar solo sucks in this song.

    joshua hendrickson

    there is actually 2 versions of this song. this one where taylor Hawkins (the drummer) is singing and the one that dave grohl is singing. the one with dave is better in my opinion

    NICK Blalock

    Mackanvafan they certainly made the song theirs with this cover. Honestly I had to give it a try and I hate it.

    Deadbankers Aredeadwankers

    They're the Foo Fighters...could of done a better job.

    Joe Schmoe

    joshua hendrickson
    Im going to look for that one.. My thoughts were. It sounded like I would expect for a Foo interpretation of the song.. But the vocals were just off.. I think Dave can pull it off.

    Georgie Boi

    Cold day in the sun is a foo fighters song written by foo fighters
