Seven-And-A-Half Cents

(Prez)
I figured it out
I figured it out
With a pencil and a pad I figured it out!
Seven and a half cents doesn't buy a hell of a lot,
Seven and a half cents doesn't mean a thing!
But give it to me every hour,
Forty hours every week,
And that's enough for me to be living like a king!
I figured it out

(chorus)
He figured it out!

(Prez)
I figured it out

(Chorus)
He figured it out!

(Prez)
With a pencil and a pad I figured it out!
Only five years from today!
Only five years from today!
I can see it all before me!
Only five years from today!
Five years! Let's see..thats 260 weeks, times forty hours every week, and roughly two and a quarter hours overtime.. at time
and a half for overtime! Comes to exactly.. $852.74!
That's enough for me to get
An automatic washing machine,
A years supply of gasoline,
Carpeting for the living room,
A vacuum instead of a blasted broom,
Not to mention a forty inch television set!

(Chorus)
So! Although!
Seven and a half cents doesn't buy a hell of a lot,
Seven and a half cents doesn't mean a thing!
But give it to me every hour,
Forty hours every week,
And that's enough for me to be living like a king!

(Babe)
I figured it out

(Chorus)
She figured it out!

(Babe)
I figured it out!

(Chorus)
She figured it out!

(Babe)
Only ten years from today,
Only ten years from today,
I can see it, clear as daylight,
Only ten years from today!
Ten years! Let's see..thats 520 weeks, times forty hours every week, and roughly two and a quarter hours overtime.. at time
and a half for overtime! Comes to exactly.. $1705.48!
That's enough for me to buy
A trip to France across the seas,
A motorboat and water skis,
Maybe even a foregian car,
A charge account at the corner bar,
Not to mention a scrabble board with letters made of gold!

(Chorus)
So! Although!
Seven and a half cents doesn't buy a hell of a lot,
Seven and a half cents doesn't mean a thing!
But give it to me every hour,
Forty hours every week,
And that's enough for me to be living like a king!

(Babe and Prez)
We figured it out!

(Chorus)
They figured it out!
They figured it out!

(Babe and Prez)
We figured it out!

(All)
With a pencil and a pad they figured it out

(Babe)
Only twenty years from today

(Prez)
Only twenty years from today

(Babe)
I can see it like a vision

(All)
Only twenty years from today

(Prez and Babe)
Twenty years! Let's see..thats 1040 weeks, times forty hours every week, and roughly two and a quarter hours overtime.. at
time and a half for overtime! Comes to exactly.. $3411.96!
Wow!

(Prez)
That's enough for me to be
A sultan in a taj mahal
In every room a different doll!

(Babe)
I'll have myself a buying spree,
I'll buy a pajama factory,
Then I could end up having old man Hasler work for me!

(Chorus)
So! Although!
Seven and a half cents doesn't buy a hell of a lot,
Seven and a half cents doesn't mean a thing!
But give it to me every hour,
Forty hours every week,
And that's enough for me to be living like a king!
