Face the Music Lyrics
The E-Commerce Blues

I woke up this quarter, was taking lots of flak
About the time my boss tells me to get the business in the black,
"E-Commerce kid," he said, "you got to get it right,
Eliminate all defects, improve our damn website."

I'm an E-Commerce soldier
Absolutely key,
Marching to the dot com beat,
I'm digitally free,
Just me and my laptop at the edge of cyberspace,
Winning lots of business cause I'm always on the case.

Oh, I used to have appointments, I used to have a schtick,
I used to shake my client's hand, now I just point and click,
I used to carry samples, I used to drive cross-state
But now my bandwidth's ample and I just webitate

I'm an E-Commerce soldier
Absolutely me
Marching to the dot com beat
Just me and my webmaster at the edge of cyberspace,
I'm moving so much faster, yes, I'm a real head case.

I'm a dot com cowboy downloading my email,
Downloading all the stock quotes, downloading the holy grail,
Downloading vendor prices, downloading the evening news,
I can tell you in a nanosecond if my suppliers have the blues.

I'm an E-Commerce soldier marching to the dot com beat,
I'm an E-Commerce soldier, the internet is me,
I'm an E-Commerce soldier, digitally free,
I'm an E-Commerce soldier in the army called just me.
