Oowah oowah ah ah ah-ah oowah oowah ah

My old desk does an 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
