MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Numbers On Paper

MOSE ALLISON
"Numbers On Paper"
(Mose Allison)

Numbers on paper
Sweet anticipation
Comes the confirmation
Time for celebration

Numbers on paper
So accommodating
Effortless equating
Instant allocating

Numbers on paper
Designate your ration
In or out of fashion
World beyond compassion

Numbers on paper
Soon become your master
Merciless forecaster
Portrait of disaster

Giver and taker
Numbers on paper
