The Lyrics

When a man bugs the office
He'd better keep his cool
Don't speak about folks behind their backs
If it's bad, he can't say it
He can't say nothing wrong
No telling jokes or making cracks

When a man bugs his office
He spends most of his time
Wondering what it was, that he just said
He gets nervous for no reason
And he can't track his thoughts
There's so much confusion in his head

When a man bugs his office
He gives up every right he has
And Free Speech then becomes a frightening thing
'Cause the tape's recording every thing he says!

When a man bugs his office
Every second of the day
He can count on just one thing
Yeah he knows every whisper
Every secret that he tells
Is gonna need some editing

When a man bugs his office
He gotta watch just what he say
'Cause every slip of the golden tongue
Will leave a blank spot on the tape

When a BUG mans the office
He gives up all excuses
And there ain't nothing that can remit
When a man bugs his office
He'd better not do nothing wrong
'Cause he's just proving his own guilt

When a man bugs his office
He gotta watch just what he say
When a man
When a man
When a man

When a BUG mans the office
When a man bugs his office
