This office party's really underway Here all the drinks are flowing, see all the people sway A long hard year ticked off the calendar Signals the time to sit on the photocopier I see you watching me across the room You've got that look about you, I know that pretty soon You'll sidle up to me and then you'll say "Come on it's Christmas baby, let's both just slip away" But don't meet me under the mistletoe If I'd've wanted you then by now I'd've let you know Don't lie to me or make me promises I know it happened once but it can't happen again Now tongues are loose and inhibitions free Everybody's racking up their regrets for January The boss is overhearing things obscene There's wine on the phones and beer in the fax machine But don't meet me under the mistletoe If I'd've wanted you then by now I'd've let you know Don't lie to me or make me promises I know it happened once but it can't happen again I know we kissed that time On the spring team building exercise But we have to leave those passions in the past From working grind we flee But that cupboard's meant for the stationery We both know these office romances don't last But don't meet me under the mistletoe If I'd've wanted you then by now I'd've let you know Don't lie to me or make me promises I know it happened once but it can't happen again Don't meet me under the mistletoe If I'd've wanted you then by now I'd've let you know Don't lie to me or make me promises I know it happened once but it won't happen again I know it happened once but it won't happen again I know it happened once but it won't happen again
