“Working Women at the Top” is the second 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.“Liverpool Oratorio” liner notes

WOMEN'S CHORUS (office staff)
Working women at the top,
Will it ever stop?
Papers piling up and up.
Days go by like Monday, Tuesday:
Work until we drop!
All the time looking great,
In a state, losing weight,
Running late again
Let me have the letter that you typed up
Did Mr. Fisher send the fax to LA?
Make sure the flowers don't arrive too late
And cancel my appointment at the Squash
Working women on the go,
Will they ever know
What it takes to run the show?
Days go by like lightning,
Will it ever slow?
Half the time feeling dead,
Miss my bed.
Did they ever pick up the accountant's
Make sure the car arrives in time for the
Get me the details of the takeover bid
And write another letter to the Minister.
The Minister of love.
Where's the time for standing still?
Holding hands and walking free.
Where's the time for you...
