I can see the third world in your eyes (A song)

My love is swelling in the belly
I can see its ribs
I can see the third world in your eyes

You put my heart in the oven
I can smell it baking
I can see the third world in your eyes

Why are you deserting me?
What’s happened to the pantry of our love?
You’ve shrunk me to a size 16
I can see the third world in your eyes

Soon I’m gonna need a sponsor
I’ll make a pretty picture on the fridge
I can see the third world in your eyes

I can see Bob Geldof coming
Aint no Band-Aid that I need
I can see the third world in your eyes

The plates were licked clean long ago
The last thing in the fridge is your affection
Our sex life suffers malnutrition
I can see the third world in your eyes

Your kisses feel like drought
Your hand as cracked as famine
I can see the third world in your eyes

I’ll read our love its last and final rights
I can see this aint no crash diet
I can see the third world in your eyes

I can see the third world
I can see the third world
Sponsor me, I’m starving
I can see the third world in your eyes
