I bought a flat
Diminished responsibility
You're de ninth person to see
To be suspended in a seventh
Major catastrophe
It's a minor point but gee
Augmented by the sharpness of your
See what I'm going through
Ay to be with you
In a flat by the sea

    General CommentThis song is one giant musical pun. The lyrics are also the chord progression - for instance, at "You're de ninth person" they play a D9 chord, and at "to see" they play a C major chord. Sometimes, they carry the pun on. For the whole progression:

    I bought A = A major (A C# E)
    [A] flat = A Flat major (Ab C Eb)
    [A flat] diminished = A Flat diminished (Ab Cb Ebb)
    Responsibility (responsibilitE)= E Major (E G# B)
    You're de ninth = D9 (D F# A C E)
    Person to see = C Major (C E G)
    To be suspended = Bsus4 (B E F#)
    by a seventh = A7 (A C# E G)
    [a seventh] major catastrophe = A Major 7th (A C# E G#)
    It's a minor = A minor (A C E)
    point, but Gee = G major (G B D)
    [but gee,] Augmented = G augmented (G B D#)
    [Gee, augmented] by the sharpness = G sharp augmented (G# B# D##)
    See (C) = C Major
    Ay (A) = A Major
    to be (B) = B Major (B D# F#)
    in a = A Major
    [in a] flat = A flat
    by the sea = C Major
