Your accountant called this morning There was spring time in his heart He couldn't wait to tell me how he pulled our lives apart And the letter from your lawyer lies unopened on the tray I may get around to reading it later today Walking round the lonely rooms I see everything the same But suddenly it matters what was purchased in my name Whether this or that is paid Belongs to me or you Can seven years together be divided by two It says something for the legal boys But nothing much for us That all we had together is so quickly ended thus The legal boys have won again And you and I have lost They can't tell us how it happened But they'll let us know the cost But they'll let us know the cost, oh yeah There's a lot I'd like to tell you But i can't get past their gaurds I do not speak their language And they hold all the cards I would rather call you darling that defendant in the case But lovers left her long ago and clients took their place It says something for the legal boys But nothing much for us That all we had together is so quickly ended thus (instrumental) The legal boys have won again And you and I have lost They can't tell us how it happened But they'll let us know the cost But they'll let us know the cost oh yeah
