She sits behind the window
Patiently waiting for the eye
Of every hungry passer-by
You simply have to have her
She will be perfect with those shoes
And you get paid on Monday too
I say she come a long way to get out here from where
she came from
Embroidered by a nine year old in South Vietnam
Who can't afford a pair of shoes look how far she's
come
To see you, there sitting in a shop window
What we want's
What we get
And we're all happy boys and girls but let's not forget
The real price of
Splendid clothing
Golden Rings
Luxury and Sugar Free and all those lovely things
The high cost of
Living the life we love
I say he come a long way to get out here from where he
came from
The journey of a soccer ball quietly began
Inside the hands of eight year olds in North Pakistan
To see you, there sitting in a shop window
What we want's
What we get
And we're all happy boys and girls but let's not forget
The real price of
Splendid clothing
Golden Rings
Luxury and Sugar Free and all those lovely things
The high cost of
Living the life we love
She sits behind the window
And all the sweat and noise and tears
Seem like a million miles from here
What we want's
What we get
And we're all happy boys and girls but let's not forget
The high cost of
Living the life we love.
