"Step Into My Office, Baby" as written by Richard William Colburn, Sarah Ann Martin, Stuart Lee Murdoch, Michael Cooke, Christopher Thomas Geddes, Stephen Thomas Jackson and Bob Michael Kildea....
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
I'm want to give you the job
I'm pushing for a raise
I've 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 go out the boss is waiting

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?

    General CommentI like the way they use every possible office-related innuendo you can think of. Best line is definitely "I'm pushing for a raise, I've been pushing now for days".

    General Commentthis song is what introduced me to belle and sebastian. i heard it on the radio real late at night when they play a lot of weird techno with a sparatic mix of british yumminess. i laughed at the words. this song is so witty and clever. i dont know if this is written on true events, but it's meaning is obvious. an affair with your boss. funny. teehee. but great music.

    General CommentLOVE this song. at first the lyrics seem normal, but then you read into them more and they're really hinting at a controlling relationship, with a domineering female boss and a subordinate office worker... mmmmm.

    General CommentIt took me so long to realize the sexual reference in the line:
    "She gave me some dictation/ but my strength is in administration"
    She performed sexual activities on him, but he is better at performing sexual activities on her.
    "DICtation," etc. Good job, B&S. That was sly.
