Globalisation shoes (2002)

I get the globalisation blues

When I read the globalisation news

Don’t know which globalisation to choose

So many globalisation shoes

In Europe they follow the laws that they got from their ma’s and their pa’s

The Yankees left home to be free, so Marines could be all they could be

In Islam they follow the mulla’s, and other fine Mecca-nized fellows

The Russians are looking for leaders with a new set of old parking meters

I get the globalisation blues

When I read the globalisation news

Don’t know which globalisation to choose

So many globalisation shoes

In China the walls are forbidding and you can’t tell if they’re only kidding

Please don’t cry again Argentina,  if the south of the border gets meaner

In Cape Town the races are on but you can’t tell who’s lost and who’s won

In Belfast they’re tossing their pints, at churches that burn through the night

The numbers keep crunching Bombay in every conceivable way

The problems that plague Indonesia are the kind that will always displease you

In Brussels they’re building their bureaus and looking for clerical heroes

In Strasbourg, The Hague and Geneva, they don’t want your senses to leave you

I get the globalisation blues

When I read the globalisation news

Don’t know which globalisation to choose

So many globalisation shoes

Each time that you watch MTV you discover a new way to be

A digital life on the run is a mobilized way to have fun

We are faced with a web of intrigue that’s taken us to a new league

The data we get is astounding as our senses keep taking a pounding

Just ask any man on the street what he’s wearing on both of his feet

Will it take him through rain and through snow and get him where he wants to go?

From Boston to Baghdad they walk, and talk like they’ve learned how to talk

If the twain are intended to meet, it comes down to the shoes on their feet

I get the globalisation blues

When I read the globalisation news

Don’t know which globalisation to choose

So many globalisation shoes

I’ve got the globalisation blues

I’m taking globalisation views

Collecting globalisation clues

To beat these globalisation blues

I’m paying globalisation dues

For all these globalisation blues

Can’t  shake these globalisation blues

Can’ t break these globalisation blues

Exchanging globalisation shoes
