Song facts

Did I Sign the Letter…” is the fourth track of the sixth movement – entitled “Work” – of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio, released in 1991.

V: WORK. Mary Dee’s office. She runs a hectic business staffed entirely by women. Mary Dee busies among the computers and fax machines, issuing orders as her girls lapse their concentration to fantasize of love. Meanwhile at Shanty’s office – where his rank does not match Mary Dee’s success – he is cajoled by colleagues to work less and play more. As one colleague, Mr. Dingle, tempts Shanty to slip off to the pub, at home Mary Dee indicates that she is pregnant.

Lyrics

MARY DEE
Did I sign the letter that you typed up
yesterday?
Is Mr. Fisher on the flight to LA?
He's got the details of the takeover bid
And I'll be in a meeting with the Minister.

WOMEN'S CHORUS
Minister, Minister of love.

Love.

MARY DEE
Feeling confusion,
Fear of intrusion,
Frightened of losing my mind.
Dreams of the future,
Thoughts of myself left behind.

WOMEN'S CHORUS
Working women at the top.

MARY DEE
Will I ever stop?
Orders piling up and up.

WOMEN'S CHORUS
Days go by like Thursday, Friday.

MARY DEE
Always on the go.
Part of myself lives inside.
