The Pound is Sinking
Tug of War, 1982

Fm                  C F
   The pound is sinking, 
Fm                C F
the peso's failing
Fm                     Bb
The lira's reeling and feeling quite appalling

Ab              
The mark is holding, 
F
the franc is fading
Bb                          Eb
The drachma's very weak but everyone's still trading
Ab           F#                       Ab
The market's bottom has fallen right out
             F#                  Ab F# F
And only the strong are survivors

        C        Fm 
Well, I fear my dear that it's eminently clear
         Db                         Fm
That you can't see the trees for the forest
     Cm             Bbm               Eb
Your father was an extraordinary man but you don't seem
                 Db            Fm          Db Fm
To have inherited many of his mannerisms
    Db          Fm
Oh, any of his mannerisms

Ab
The dollar's moving, 
F
the ruble's rising
Bb                          Eb
The yen is keeping up which hardly seems surprising
Ab           F#                      Ab 
The market's bottom has fallen right out
             F#                   Ab
And only the strong are survivors

Fm      C        Eb                       Ab
Hear me lover, I can't be held responsible now
    Bbm             Ab
For something that didn't happen
  Eb                     Ab          Fm
I knew you for a minute, oh it didn't happen
Db         Cm           Fm                 Cm              Db
Only for a minute, your heart just wasn't in it anymore

Fm              C F
The pound is sinking, 
Fm              C F
the peso's failing
Fm                     Bb                       Fm
The lira's reeling and feeling quite appalling
