It's A Miracle

This song is by Roger Waters and appears on the album Amused to Death (1992).

"Miraculous" you call it, babe
You ain't seen nothing yet
They've got Pepsi in the Andes
They've McDonalds in Tibet

Yosemite's been turned into a golf course for the Japs
And 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

They had sex in Pennsylvania
A Brazilian grew a tree
And a doctor in Manhattan
Saved a dying man for free

It's a miracle
It's a miracle
It's a miracle
Another miracle

By the grace of God Almighty
And the pressures of marketplace
The human race has civilized itself
It's a miracle

We've got warehouses of butter
We've got oceans of wine
We've got famine when we need it
We've got a designer crime

We've got Mercedes, we've got Porsche
Ferrari and Rolls Royce
Yeah, we've got "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 a farmer in Ohio
Has just repaid a loan

It's a miracle
It's a miracle
It's a miracle
Another miracle

By the grace of God Almighty
And pressures of the 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 lid comes down
And breaks his fucking fingers
It's a miracle
