Pink Floyd – Another Brick In The Wall

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London.

They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music.

Distinguished by their use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, extended compositions and elaborate live shows, they are one of the most commercially successful and influential groups in the history of popular music.

Pink Floyd were founded in 1965 by students Syd Barrett on guitar, Nick Mason on drums, Roger Waters on bass, and Richard Wright on keyboards.

They gained popularity performing in London’s underground music scene during the late 1960s, and under Barrett’s leadership released two charting singles and a successful debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967).

Guitarist David Gilmour joined in December 1967; Barrett left in April 1968 due to deteriorating mental health. Waters became the band’s primary lyricist and eventually their dominant songwriter, devising the concepts behind their albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979) and The Final Cut (1983).

The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall became two of the best-selling albums of all time.

Another Brick In The Wall – Lyrics

“Another Brick In The Wall”

You! Yes, you! Stand still laddie!

When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers who would
Hurt the children any way they could

By pouring their derision
Upon anything we did
And exposing every weakness
However carefully hidden by the kids

But out in the middle of nowhere

When they got home at night, their fat and
Psycopathic wives would thrash them
Within inches of their lives

We don’t need no education

We don’t need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teacher, leave them kids alone

Hey, teacher, leave the kids alone

All in all it’s just another brick in the wall

All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

We don’t need no education

We don’t need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers, leave them kids alone

Hey, teacher, leave us kids alone

All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
