"Perfect Sense Part 2     (Waters)

Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense.
Expressed in dollars and cents,
Pounds, shillings and pence.
Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense.

Little black soul departs in perfect focus,
Hold on soldier.
Prime time fodder, for the News at Nine,
Hold on, hold on soldier.
Darling is the child, warm in the bed tonight.

"Hi everybody I'm Marv Albert,
And welcome to our telecast
Coming to you live from Memorial Stadium.
It's a beautiful day,
And today we expect a sensational matchup,
But first our global anthem".

Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense,
Expressed in dollars and cents,
Pounds, shillings and pence.
Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense.

"And here come the players.
As I speak to you now, the captain
Has his cross hairs zeroed in on the oil rig.
He's at periscope depth.
It looks to me like he's going to attack.
By the way did you know that a submarine
Captain earns 200,000 dollars a year?"

(Edward:)"That's less tax Marv".

(Marv:)"Yeah, less tax, thank you Edward".

(Edward:)"You're welcome".

(Marv:)"Now back to the game...he fires one...yes
There goes two; both fish are running,
The rig is going into a prevent defense,
Will they make it? I don't think so"
Look out!
Look at that baby burn!

Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense,
Expressed in dollars and cents,
Pounds, shillings and pence.
Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense.
Can't you see,
It all makes perfect sense.
