    (Mary Dee's Office)

    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,
    Running late,
    In a state, losing weight,
    Running late again
    And again.

    MARY DEE
    Let me have the letter that you typed up yesterday.
    Did Mr. Fisher send the fax to LA?
    Make sure the flowers don't arrive too late
    And cancel my appointment at the Squash Club.

    WOMEN'S CHORUS
    What club?

    MARY DEE
    Squash Club.

    WOMEN'S CHORUS
    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,
    Over-fed,
    Aching head,
    Miss my bed.
    Over-fed again And again.

    MARY DEE
    Did they ever pick up the accountant's resume?
    Make sure the car arrives in time for the plane.
    Get me the details of the takeover bid
    And write another letter to the Minister.

    WOMEN'S CHORUS
    Minister?

    MARY DEE
    The Minister of love.

    WOMEN'S CHORUS
    Love.
    (La)

    MARY DEE
    Where's the time for standing still?

    WOMEN'S CHORUS
    Holding hands and walking free.

    MARY DEE
    Where's the time for you...

    MARY DEE and WOMEN'S CHORUS
    And me?

    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.

    (Shanty's office)

    MEN'S CHORUS
    When you ask a working man,
    'Does he ever stop?'
    Will he make it to the top?
    Should he take a break on Sunday?
    Work until he drop.

    SHANTY
    My early days in school required
    A lot of concentration
    I was finding out.

    But now in later years I find
    My colleagues here are more inclined
    To mess about.
    My wife at home
    Would surely never understand
    If I so much as look at someone else

    MEN'S CHORUS
    If men had been the faithful sort
    It surely would have changed the course of history.

    Don't ask me who the first man was
    That dared to take a mistress,
    It's a mystery.
    Your wife at home
    Would surely have to understand
    If you were ever seen with someone else.

    MR. DINGLE
    Oh, no she won't!

    MEN'S CHORUS
    You wouldn't dare!

    SHANTY
    Oh, yes I would!

    MR, DINGLE
    Oh, no you don't!

    MEN'S CHORUS
    All things matrimonial
    Carry with them certain responsibilities.

    SHANTY and MR. DINGLE
    (Ah)
    Carry with them certain responsibilities.

    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
