about

The Flags finished the Christmas track early for 2014 due to impending travel arrangements - a Christmas hat-trick completed! This one took longer than 10 minutes.

lyrics

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
