A platypus in a fedora! In a weird looking building!
Hey you know that guy! It took you long enough!
Seven minutes! Sign on the bottom!
Its the regulation box! Here's our card!
Paul's on his way to deliver some tools to a platypus in a fedora!
He's on his way! He's gotta save the day!
He's only got seven minutes! Wishes he had more-a!
He's on his way and we're singing what he's doing!
So it looks like we might have a new career before us!
He's on his way! I guess we are, too!
From a pop-metal band to a rockin' Greek chorus!

- A Greek Chorus, as defined by Wikipedia, is "a homogeneous, non-individualised group of performers in the plays of classical Greece, who comment with a collective voice on the dramatic action." This lyric explains how each band member sings as one voice, rather than the previous portion of the ballad where Major Monogram talks and Love Händel repeats his words in harmony. Also, this line may be trying to compare Paul's call to save Perry the Platypus as heroic, or in the footsteps of the mythical Heroes of Ancient Greece.
