Office Blues

Woke up this morning, I stretched and I groaned
Yeah, woke up this morning, I stretched and I groaned.
Why can’t that alarm clock just leave me alone?

Sit at a desk from nine until five
At that same old desk from nine until five
No time to write poems, no time to skive.

i’ve got those office blues
And it’s really spoiling my day
I’ve got those pissed off office blues
Thank the gods tomorrow’s Friday.

The sound of her keyboard’s driving me crazy,
The tip-tap of her keyboard is driving me crazy
Can’t think what I’m doing, my mind is so hazy

I’m typing up minutes, but minutes take hours
Yeah, I’m typing those minutes, but they’re taking me hours
Why can’t someone spoil me with chocolates and flowers?

i’ve got those office blues
My blood pressure’s rising higher
I’ve got those stressed-out office blues –
Can I set the place on fire?

 

Notes – I think I’ve probably taken liberties with the blues form, but it sums up my day pretty well!
