Good Old Desk

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the compilation For The Love Of Harry: Everybody Sings Nilsson (1995) and on the compilation album Rarities (2003).

My old desk
Doesn't arabesque
In the mornings 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
It's got no place to go
It's always there
It's 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
It's always there to please
Me from nine to five

Such a comfort to know
It's dependable and slow
But it's always there
It's the one friend I've got
A giant of all times
My good old desk

My old desk
Isn't picturesque
But it's happy as a desk can be
We never say a word
But it's perfectly
All right with me

For when my heart's on the floor
I just open the drawer
Of my favourite guest
And what do I see?
But a picture of me
Working at my good old desk
