Good Old Desk

Recorded/Published: 1968
On the TV show "Playboy After Dark" a straight-faced Harry Nilsson told Hugh Hefner that the meaning of the song "Good Old Desk" was in its initials - "GOD." Years later Nilsson admitted, "I bullshitted him. I thought it was funny."

Lyrics:

My old desk does an arabesque,
In the morning when I first arrive.
It's a pleasure to see
It's waiting there for me
To keep my hopes alive. ...
