INTRO
| Em | %  |

Em
 The Pound is sinking
Bm Em
     The Peso's falling
Bm Em
     The Lira's reeling 
    Am
And feeling quite appalling


VERSE
G                    G/F#
  The Mark is holding
Em
  The Franc is fading
Am
 The Drachma's very weak 
    D    D/C         D/B      D/A
But everyone's still trading
G              F                       G
  The market's bottom has fallen right out
             F           |  G      F  |  G  F  |  Em  |  Em7  |
And only the strong are survivors


INTERLUDE 1
        Em
Well, I fear my dear that it's eminently clear
         C                          | Em |
That you can't see the trees for the forest
     Em               Am
Your father was an extraordinary man 
    D                        G
But you don't seem to have inherited 
5/8                       5/8
C                  Em    | C | Em |
Many of his mannerisms
5/8                
C                  Em
Oh, any of his mannerisms


VERSE
G                    G/F#
  The Dollar's moving
Em
  The Ruble's rising
Am
 The Yen is keeping up 
      D      D/C      D/B      D/A
Which hardly seems surprising
G              F                       G
  The market's bottom has fallen right out
             F          |  G      F  |  G  F  |
And only the stout are survivors


INTERLUDE 2
Em          B7
Hear me, my lover
  Dm6                       G7
I can't be held responsible now
    D                     A
For something that didn't happen
  D        D/C  D/B      D/A
I knew you for a minute

3/4
G            Em
Oh it didn't happen
C         Bm
Only for a minute
     Em                Bm7      C
Your heart just wasn't in it anymore, mmh, mmh, mmh


OUTRO
Em
 The Pound is sinking
Bm Em
     The Peso's falling
Bm Em
     The Lira's reeling 
    Am
And feeling quite appalling
