Differences between the US and UK 'Pros and Cons' Lyrics Sheets

Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ

There are some differences between the respective lyrics sheets. For one thing, the British version has the characters who say each bit listed, but the CBS version does not. This is from a posting by Dave Cowl:

Type of Difference

Man:"Oh God!"

Wake up..
Extra Wife:"What border?
Go back to sleep"
Uh, what border

Difference In the company of has beens In bent backs In sleeping
Under tube trains in commuter accidents
In the company of has beens and bent backs and sleeping
Under tube trains and commuter accidents
Difference On loading ramps On unloading ramps
Difference Then the moment of clarity And the moment of clarity

I thought this would be of interest. The most amusing part is that in the music book, the listed lyrics are the British ones, but the words against the music are the CBS lyrics. Weird, huh!
