The Pound Is Sinking

Paul McCartney


The pound is sinking

The peso's falling

The lira's reeling

And feeling quite appalling


The mark is holding

The franc is fading

The drachma's very weak

But everyone's still trading


The market's bottom

Has fallen right out

And only the strong are survivors


Well I fear, my dear

That it's eminently clear

That you can't see the trees

For the forest

Your father was an

Extraordinary man

But you don't seem to have inherited

Many of his mannerisms


Oh, any of his mannerisms


The dollar's moving

The rouble's rising

The yen is keeping up

Which hardly seems surprising


The market's bottom

Has fallen right out

And only the stout are survivors


Hear me lover

I can't be held responsible now

For something that didn't happen

I knew you for a minute

Oh, it didn't happen

Only for a minute

Your heart just wasn't in it any more


The pound is sinking

The peso's failing

The lira's reeling,

And feeling quite appalling
