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's 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?

"Well I know how hard it is for young girls these days
In the face of ev'rything to stay on the right track."

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.
Temporary, hoo, secretary, ooh,
I need a temporary secretary, ooh,
Temporary, hoo, secretary, ooh,
Temporary secretary, ooh
I need a temporary, ooh, secretary, ooh,
Temporary secretary, ooh,
Oh, temporary, ooh, secretary.

    this song is about a boss whose regular secretary is getting sick so he needs another secretary but for only a short time until his regular secretary gets better, hence the title "temporary secretary."
