British Comedy Collection
So what becomes of you my love,
When they have finally stripped
you of,
The handbags and the gladrags,
That your granddad had to sweat,
So you could buy.
The Office is set in the Slough office of Wernham Hogg paper merchants. The everyday lives of the staff are seen through the cameras of a fly-on-the-wall film crew.
