"Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert" is a song from Pink Floyd's 1983 album, "The Final Cut". It was never performed live by the band, though it's been played at nearly every live performance Roger Waters has played since 1987, often as a medley with "Southampton Dock." It was featured in said medley on Roger Waters's live DVD "In the Flesh Live".

A sound effect used in this song was later used as a segue on Roger Water's 1992 solo album "Amused to Death", branching the two part song "Late Home Tonight." The lyrics list a number of world leaders and conflicts they have been involved in, including most starkly Margaret Thatcher and the sinking of the ARA General Belgrano.
