"The Midnight Oil" lyrics

The Midnight Oil

That call was from the office
And I guess I'll have to burn
The midnight oil again
And hon you know how much the boss
Depends on me to lend a helping hand

I watch him in the mirror
As I lie and tell him
I don't know how late I'll be
While I'm putting on my makeup
I'm putting on the one
That really loves me

The girls all got together
And they called to see
If I could have some fun tonight
But you know me the only thing I do
Is go to work and watch TV

And I watch him in the mirror
As I lie and tell him
I don't know how late I'll be
While I'm putting on my makeup
I'm putting on the one
That really loves me

And tonight I'll cheat again
And tomorrow I'll be sorry
And I'll feel kind of dirty
Cause I'll have the midnight oil all over me
God knows his dream would shatter
If he knew the devil had me
And won't set me free
While I'm putting on my makeup
I'm putting on the one
That really loves me

While I'm putting on my makeup
I'm putting on the one
That really loves me
