                        At this point of time, I happen to be just that --
single and (literally) bilingual, English being the only language
I speak but my native tongue.

This is enough for one to get interested in a song, isn't it?
The whole of "Bilingual" album is very dear to me.
Partially, because of the memories that are connected with my
listening to it for the first time...
partially, because it is a wonderful piece of music.

This particular song puts me in a trance.
It reminds me of all those crazy discos... when you're losing your mind
as you surrender to the wild rhythm...
of the parties, when you trun out to be alone...
of the mode of life of those who are single and bilingual! ;))

Try it, you'll like it!

                They call this a community
I like to think of it as home
Arriving at the airport
I'm going at it alone
Ordering a boarding pass
Travelling in business class
This is the name of the game

I'm single bilingual
Single bilingual

I come to the community from U.K. p.l.c.
Arriving at my hotel there are faxes greeting me
Staying in a junior suite
so there's room to meet and greet
and after work explain how I feel
'Perdoneme me llamo Neil'

I'm single bilingual
Single bilingual

In Brussels
Bonn or Barcelona
I'm in demand and quite at home
there 'Adelante'
Through the door
'Un momento por favor'
This is what I get paid for
'Muchas gracias senor'

I'm a player in the continental game
with unlimited expenses to reclaim
Information's easy
Tapping at my PC
That is the frame of the game
I'm single bilingual
Single bilingual
I'm single bilingual
Single bilingual

Hay una discoteca por acqui?
