“She called me up today
meet me down at the old cafe
I jumped into the shower
I was getting my marching orders

We need to talk
step into my office, baby
I want to give you the job
a chance of overtime
say, my place at nine?

She’d never stand for any lies
she’s got an Out Tray full of guys
I could sense a breath, a whole new feeling
now she says she wants to call a meeting

We need to talk
step into my office, baby
I want to give you the job
a chance of overtime
say, my place at nine?

I’m a slave to work
I’m only living when I walk
amongst the office staff
and catch up with the office wag
I’ll be in bed by nine
my curtains drawn
my thoughts composed
I get to work on time

She gave me some dictation
but my strength is in administration
I took down all she said
I even took down her little red dress

We need to talk
step into my office, baby
wanna give you the job
I’m pushing for a raise
been pushing now for days

My output is in decline
I was burned out after Thatcher
my banner I laid down with a sigh
now I doubt if I’ll ever catch her

I’ve got to change my ways
dress for business every day
a sharp suit and a kipper tie
a big arrow pointing to my fly

Have you shaved for work yet, baby?
Don’t care where the boss is, baby

We need to talk
step into my office, baby
I want to give you the job
a chance of overtime
say, my place at nine?”.
