Extra Executives
   ------Jane Siberry



blowing kisses off his face
like flies --- like little flies
blowing like a grouper fish
floating through the reefs

his card says executive
but it mumbles just a salesman
he's not sure just who you are
but you might be a good connection

extra executives with a general desire (I want, I want)
extra executives with a general desire (I want, I want)
general desire (I want)
general desire (I want)
he took a course in sales
he's never been the same

a certain way to do things
respect for expectations
sponsored links
his bank gets a promotion
but his brain gets a vacation

he's looking over your shoulder
at the party for a person
who will change his life
reward him somehow
hey... I'm talking to you

extra executives...

(SPOKEN)
One time i asked him if he liked grouper fish
and he didn’t know weather I wanted to hear
that he ate them or just admired them. And if
he said “Yes, I think they’re delicious I would align
him with a cultural typical reward and reward him
with a dinner invitation. Or maybe I went to the
caribbean once and I had enough cents so I
went out on a glass bottom boat for the afternoon
and saw these colourful fish swimming around
the coal reef and I asked the man at the front of the boat,
“What kind of fish are they?” Ans:”Grouper Fish” and I said
“Aren’t they beautiful. Who’d ever wanna eat one?”
And so this guy tried to be big and to lift his ‘always
dress as if you’re successful cuffs’ over all those
traits and pods of non-neutral information. And I stood
there with him in indecipherable expression, swirling the
ice cubes in my martini and finally…he turned red and blew up.

everything's an exercise
for the extra executive
he's not sure just who you are
but you might be a good connection

blowing kisses off his face
like flies --- like little flies
blowing like a grouper fish
floating through the reefs

waiting for that special deal in the sky
that he never has to trade in

the telephone call that never comes
the letter's not in the letter box
the handshake that will close the deal
the telegram that will change his life

extra executives with a general desire (I want, I want)
extra executives with a general desire (I want, I want)
general desire (I want)
general desire (I want)
he took a course in sales
he's never been the same
