"Temporary Secretary" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
Mister marks can you find for me
Someone strong and sweet fitting on my knee
She can keep her job if she gets it wrong
Ah, but mister marks I won't need her long
All I need is help for a little while
We can take dictation and learn to smile
And a temporary secretary is what I need for to do the job

I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary

Mister marks could you send her quick
'cause my regular has been getting sick

I need a
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary

Mister marks I can pay her well
If she comes along and can stay a spell
I will promise now that I'll treat her right
And will rarely keep her 'til late at night

I need a

She can be a belly dancer
I don't need a need romancer
She can be a diplomat
But I don't need a girl like that
She can be a neurosurgeon
If she's doin' nothing' urgent
What I need's a temporary, temporary secretary
I need a, I need a
Temporary secretary. temporary secretary
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary

Now mister marks when I send her back
Will you please make sure she stays on the right track

Spoken:
Well I know how hard it is for young girls these days in the face of everything to stay on
The right track

What I need's a temporary, temporary secretary
Temporary secretary I need a /
Temporary secretary, temporary secretary,
Temporary secretary I need a
Temporary secretary. temporary secretary,
Temporary secretary.

    General CommentI just heard this for the first time, and it was so kooky I just had to love it. It's so close to being annoying, so close to being catchy, but ends up failing to be either.

    I don't think there's any deep meaning to the song. It's just a guy asking for a temp.

    I guess there was an actual "Mister Marks" who ran a temp agency and is the one referred to in this song. After hearing it, he wanted to use it for his own commercials, but Paul kept strict to his policy of not allowing his songs to be used for commercials(a policy he only broke just recently for the song Fine Line).
