My Good Old Desk- by Harry Nilsson
Oowah Oowah ah ah ah-ah Oowah Oowah ah
My old desk doesn't arabesque,
In the morning when I first arrive.

It's a pleasure to see it's waiting there for me
To keep my hopes alive.
Such a comfort to know its got no place to go,
It's always there.

Its the one thing I've got, a huge success,
My Good Old Desk.

My old desk never needs a rest,
And I've never once heard it cry.
I've never seen it tease, its always there to please me
From nine to five.

Such a comfort to know, it's dependable and slow,
But its always there.
Its the one friend I've got, a giant of all times,
My Good Old Desk.

Oowah Oowah ah ah ah-ah Oowah Oowah ah
My old desk isn't picturesque,
But its happy as a desk can be.
We never say a word, but its perfectly alright with me.

For when my heart's on the floor, I just open the drawer
Of my favorite guest.
And what do I see? But a picture of me
Working at my Good Old Desk.

Oowah Oowah ah ah ah-ah Oowah Oowah ah
