Paul McCartney - The Pound Is Sinking lyrics

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 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 strong 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 anymore

The pound is sinking
The peso's falling
The lira's reeling
And feeling quite appalling
