about

I have not done a rap before but I used the subject of workplace romance anyway because I think that all of the contestants should have the same challenge.

lyrics

I see you standing by your desk
And I don't mean to be obsessed
But I have not seen nothing cuter
Than when you're working on your computer

Even though the boss is grousing
Girl your browsing is arousing
Although, we better take a look
At what it says in the employee handbook

We need a secret place to meet
'cause our love violates corporate policy
For a little bit of slap and tickle
We can't make love in an open cubicle

As one idea, I would posit
We could try the supply closet
In among the pens and pencils
Hole punchers and letter stencils

But I don't want to be disabled
If somehow I accidently got stapled
And you could end up with Post-it notes
Clinging to your panty hose

It might be too tight a squeeze
We'd bang our heads and bump our knees
And at the risk of sounding crass
I can't make love with scissors up my a...backside

Where can we find a place for love
'cause I don't want to waste our love
That forbidden taste of love
Is what I live for

As our budding ardor starts to bloom
We could go into the copier room
Maybe then we cold acquire
The object of our heart's desire

And we could execute our caper
There among the reams of paper
And while our love is consummated
We would get sorted and collated

But all in all I think it's better
If we avoid the paper shredder
I don't want to be an organ donor
And I can't make love with toner on my boner

Maybe we could meet up later
And go into the elevator
Press the button to close the doors
And stop the car between the floors

That would be the perfect fashion
The satisfy our growing passion
But there would be a likely chance
That someone would call maintenance

And it could be just our luck
That the elevator would get stuck
I might have a claustrophobia attack
And I can't make love while I'm hearing Muzak

Where can we find a place for love
'cause I don't want to waste our love
That forbidden taste of love
Is what I live for

On second thought, if we get caught
Then it would be all for naught
When he finds out the boss would flip
And we would both get a pink slip

And I know I would not enjoy
Joining the ranks of the unemployed
More than just a slap on the wrist
It's a high price to pay for our tryst

And if I acquire an ambition
To go apply for a new position
It would be hard to explain away
It won't look good on my resume

Where can we find a place for love
'cause I don't want to waste our love
That forbidden taste of love
Is what I live for
