Lyrics

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

play I'm single, bilingual
play Single, bilingual

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

play I'm single, bilingual
play Single, bilingual

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

play I'm a player in the continental game
play With unlimited expenses to reclaim
play Information's easy
play tapping at my pc
play That is the frame of the game

play I'm single, bilingual
play Single, bilingual
play I'm single, bilingual
play Single, bilingual

play 'Hay una discoteca por acqui?'

meaning Meaning

Neil has himself provided:

"The narrator is a very glib Euro businessman, a glib Eurocrat who flies business class and likes all his privileges. He tries to pick up chicks at meet 'n' greets. He's pretending to be a sophisticated ladies man: 'Single! Bilingual!'. But he's not really communicating either and he knows it. In actual fact he's a hopeless, tragic wreck."

vocabulary Vocabulary

Tapping at my PC

That is, typing on his personal computer (probably a laptop). The use of the words "tapping at" rather than "typing on" suggest the narrator's glib (to use Neil's own terminology) or even mildly disdainful attitude toward the activity.
