Lyrics

Global Eyes
Bill Shipper

I went into business with her
For love and love alone
A domestic strategy and vision,
The office in our home

I should have seen the implication
In her expansion presentation
International lust just looming in her eyes

Global Eyes
Why didn’t I realize?
I wanted local love but she had Global Eyes

Now she’s with Sanjay in Mumbai
Outsourcing over chai
Or having vodka on the Volga
Vetting deals with Nikolai

She’s cultivating markets yet untilled,
I’m in the warehouse unfulfilled,
Taking orders for those borderless Global Eyes

Global Eyes
Why didn’t I realize?
I wanted local love but she had Global Eyes

Now she’s with Hao Ling in Beijing
Finalizing a funding fling
Or wrestling with Russell in Brussels
Building distribution muscle

Whether liner, truck or train
Her old logistics won’t contain her
But the freight is expressed through those Global Eyes

Global Eyes
Why didn’t I realize?
I wanted local love but she had Global Eyes

All would not be lost
Had I only learned about the landed cost
While she’s swooning to their seductive odes,
I’m struggling with harmonized codes!

I could be leering at some local beauties
But I’m a married importer, I’ve got my duties
Duties to those taxing Global Eyes
