Pigs (Three Different Ones)

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 hatpin
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, 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 got to 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

* Note on the song:

The original version of the song was performed in 1977 and referred to the contemporary British politicians mainly implying the following:

First, para implies "James Callaghan", the British Prime Minister (left wing) in 1977.

Second, para implies "Margaret Thatcher", (The Iron Lady), the British prime minister as of 1979.

Third, para is indeed a direct mention of "Mary Whitehouse", an advocate for censorship and rigidity in sicial media and education.

But in the above new version performed in October 2016 in Mexico City, as it is clearly evident by the pictures of the stage, the song directly addresses Donald Trump.

It's better to write this comment under these translations, so translators will receive notifications.

I put it here in order to avoid the issue in *new* translations. As for existing translations, it's best to contact the translators with PM in my opinion...
