I'm counting on something An unknown quantity To tell me I'm doing A-OK I'm living and dying Simultaneously My fingers are counting time, two, three One through four Give or take a variation Seven more To complete the great equation She's laughing, I'm silent I'm all wound up inside As moody as a violin The coffee, the coffee is on, The coffee is on the table She's grinding figures like my dad One through four Give or take a variation Seven more To complete the great equation I've paid the piper twice I bought myself a pocket calculator In the dark it shines so bright I get it right sometimes I'm sleeping with fever And dreaming elephants My pillow remembers things for me One through four Give or take a variation Seven more Complicate the whole affair Three makes nine Which is fine if that's your kind of number Seven more To complete the great equation

Hand in the water as we slip down the River Cam Hand of the Maker on display all day Swans white and gliding, tired, stuffed full of sandwiches Tea, beer, and dry land on the way Come all ye faithful to the boathouse, hey Drinks are on me but I'm not buying Long live the king, the queen is dead, goodbye Although I am drunk I will not cry Four in the morning on a grey dreary afternoon Seagulls are screaming, kettle on, dear boy View from my window is the view from my window Each new day fills my teacup with new joy Neighbors are fighting and the peace I feel Reminds me to check prescription ready What was I thinking when I made that deal? The devil won't want me when I'm dead Hail Britannia's former glory Sweet red strawberry Fresh from Tesco via lorry White or granary Every border tells a story When do I tell mine? Hail Britannia's former glory Draw the battle line Snake in the water as we drift through a sneaky dream Swim as the bathtub overflows, oh no Wake to the television singing that song again Where did those days of summer go? Oh, I remember how it used to be? Once when the weather was so pleasant Do you remember how it used to be? Don't you remember how it was? Raise a glass to memory, please Ring the bells for everything we were
