Music Monday – It’s A Miracle by Roger Waters

Hey everyone!
Firstly, I want to say sorry for not posting yesterday, but I had nothing scheduled, and I didn’t feel like writing anything. Yesterday was supposed to be our wedding day, but because of Covid-19, we have had to postpone until next year. It was a very hard day, but we got through it with movies, and lots of sweets and chocolate. Now, the countdown to our new date can properly begin!

Anyway, I am back, with this week’s Music Monday! I am continuing with my decision to allow my fiancé, Alex, to choose the songs during lockdown. For this week’s song, he has chosen It’s A Miracle by Roger Waters


It’s A Miracle by Roger Waters

It’s A Miracle is taken from Roger Waters’ 1992 album, Amused To Death. Amused To Death is his 3rd studio album as a solo artist.


Lyrics

Miraculous you call it babe
You ain’t seen nothing yet
They’ve got Pepsi in the Andes
Mcdonalds in Tibet
Yosemite’s been turned into
A golf course for the Japs
The Dead Sea is alive with rap
Between the Tigris and Euphrates
There’s a leisure centre now
They’ve got all kinds of sports
They’ve got Bermuda shorts
The had sex in Pennsylvania
A Brazilian grew a tree
A doctor in Manhattan
Saved a dying man for free
It’s a miracle
Another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And pressures of marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It’s a miracle
We’ve got a warehouse of butter
We’ve got oceans of wine
We’ve got famine when we need it
Got a designer crime
We’ve got Mercedes
We’ve got Porsche
Ferrari and Rolls Royce
We’ve got a choice
She said meet me
In the Garden of Gethsemane my dear
The Lord said Peter I can see
Your house from here
An honest man
Finally reaped what he had sown
And farmer in Ohio has just repaid a loan
It’s a miracle
Another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty
And pressures of marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It’s a miracle
We cower in our shelters
With our hands over our ears
Lloyd-Webber’s awful stuff
Runs for years and years and years
An earthquake hits the theatre
But the operetta lingers
Then the piano lids comes down
And break his fucking fingers
It’s a miracle
