Dan Bern - Someone From The Office

Song Lyrics

She said "I like what you're doing and
I like the way you do it and
I like the way you make those words rhyme
You're the most interesting thing since Einstein
Thought about the nature of time"

I gave her a flyer and I said
"I'm playing Wednesday night
Not too very far away"

She said "Wednesday's really tough,
I'm seeing four bands already,
And I'm flying to Berlin the next day,"

But she said "Someone from the office will be there,
Someone from the office will be in the room,
Might be the secretary, might be the mail boy,
He's deaf but I really trust his ear.
Keep on sending me your cards in the mail,
I really want to follow your career.
I can't personally make it, but
Someone from the office will be there."

She said, "Do you like Dylan?
I hung out with Bobby way way back in Minnesota.
He said he wanted to go to New York City,
I suggested South Dakota.
The people from the Beatles,
They wanted me to manage them
I told them I don't really hear a hit.
You could be a star, though the odds are against it,
And the smartest thing would probably be to quit."

And she said, "Someone from the office will be there,
Someone from the office will be in the room.
Wednesday's really difficult,
I do my nails on Tuesday
And it takes a couple days for them to dry.
Put me on your guest list, there's a decent chance
I can make it out by Christmas time next year.
I can't personally make it,
But someone from the office will be there.
I'm afraid I lost your tape,
I think I listened to it,
If you could send another one,
No leave the tabs in, we'll be careful
But someone from the office will be there.
