"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

[ENSEMBLE]
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!

[ENSEMBLE]
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

[ENSEMBLE]
She figured it out!

[BABE]
I figured it out!

[ENSEMBLE]
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!

[ENSEMBLE]
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!

[PREZ & BABE]
We figured it out!

[ENSEMBLE]
They figured it out!
They figured it out!

[PREZ & BABE]
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 & 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!

[ENSEMBLE]
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!
