Song facts

Allegro Energico” is the seventh 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

MR. DINGLE
Let's find ourselves a little hostelry
Where you can sit and have a drink on me.
We'll get a chance
To talk about anyone who bothers us.

There's so much more to life than meets the
eye,
It's quite enough to make a throat feel dry.
So let's repair
To where no-one else would dare to bother
us.

Let's have a drink
While we think what to do.
And while we think,
I'll accept a little drink from you.

If everybody took a serious view of life,
We all would feel the same as you.
But, as it is,
We don't, so it isn't gonna bother us.

Let's have a drink
While we think what to do.
And while we think,
I'll accept a little drink from you.

MARY DEE
Part of myself grows inside.
