Album: Paul McCartney's Liverpool oratorio
Autor: McCartney-Davis

Mary Dee sings to the child inside her, fretting for its future. Shanty arrives home slightly drunk, short-tempered and demanding dinner. They row over money and Shanty's feelings of inadequacy. Shanty wounds her by doubting her love and Mary Dee storms out - telling him, as she goes, that she is pregnant. In her blind anger and hurt, she runs in front of a car and is knocked down.
In hospital, a nurse wills her to live as - in delirium - Mary Dee sees the ghosts again. She fights to cling on to the life of her baby as the ghosts try to steal it from her. At her bed, Shanty prays, promising to reform if only Mary Dee and the baby are saved.

Allegro molto (orchestra)

Mary Dee and Shanty's home

Mary Dee (alone in bedroom):
The world you're coming into
is no easy place to enter
ev'ry day is haunted by the echoes of the past
funny thoughts and wild, wild dreams
will find their way into your mind
the clouds that hang above us
may be full of rain and thunder
but in time they slide away
to find the sun still there
lazy days and wild, wild flowers
will bring some joy into your heart
and I will always love you
I'll welcome you into this world.

Mary Dee and boy solo:
You're mine and I will love you.

Tempo 1 (orchestra)

Shanty:
Where's my dinner
I've been working hard all day
and a man can work up quite an appetite that way
what's for dinner
something nourishing and hot
I could tackle quite a lot of 'you know what'
and all I've got to say to you is 'why no dinner?'
I've got nothing on my plate
it's expected of a mate
why'd 'ya have to make me wait
where's my...

Mary Dee:
This is the way we put out the candle
farewell to childhood
deep in the wild wood a fire goes out
and what are we left with now we are grown up?

Shanty:
This is the way we pull up the anchor
goodbye to romance
out on the ocean a good ship is lost
and what are we left with now we are grown up?

Mary Dee:
Time to be thinking of real life feelings
I must get on.

Shanty:
Time to be buying those little trinkets I can't afford
lord knows I want to give her the best
but where will I find the rest of the cash?

Mary Dee:
It's one mad dash to fame and fortune
the cymbals clash and then you're gone.

Shanty:
So what are my chances of getting promotion
the way things are going, it doesn't look good.

Mary Dee:
What good is complaining, it's getting you nowhere
and I'm in the middle of your whirlwind
in the eye of your storm.

Shanty:
Let's not argue.

Mary Dee:
Spare me your excuses.

Shanty:
No excuses.

Mary Dee:
Pardon my anger.

Shanty:
Why are you driving me so hard?

Mary Dee:
I can't believe what I'm hearing.

Shanty:
You didn't cook any dinner.

Mary Dee:
I'm not a slave, I work for a living
I can command the respect of my peers
where did you go
you were out with the boys.

Shanty:
So what if I went for a drink
you'd think to listen to you
it was some sort of crime.

Mary Dee:
I needed someone to talk to
but all I could find was myself
if you were the same man I married
you'd know that your woman needs love.

Shanty:
And what about me
I suppose I don't matter
I'm not even sure
if you ever loved me.

Mary Dee:
Right
that's it
I'm off
oh and by the way...you're about to become a father.

She rushes out into the street

Chorus:
Stop
wait
hold on
hold on to life
stay.

Hospital

Nurse:
Do you know who you are
as you lie there sleeping
take the time to rest your troubled head
I will watch over you till the moment you awake
can you hear what I say
as you lie there sleeping
when misfortunes crowd into your day
and the dark side of life
has become too much to bear
I will stay by your side
though we don't yet know
if there's something wrong
you were brought in from the street
and a witness said you gave a shout
as you fell down at his feet
we are running tests
and soon the results will be known
but I feel I have to warn you
there may be complications
but we don't yet know if your child is in danger
we shall have to wait and see
in the meantime there is nothing more for you to do
but sleep.

Boys:
Ghosts of the past left behind.

Men's chorus (ghosts):
You're sleeping amongst us, we're in your dream.

Nurse:
You're dreaming. Try to rest, my child.

Men's chorus (ghosts):
You called us, we heard you and we are here.

Nurse:
To save your child you must be still.

Men's chorus (ghosts):
We're ready to listen to what you ask.

Nurse:
Go to sleep.

Women's chorus (ghosts):
You're crossing the water, the tide is strong.

Mary Dee:
No!

Women's chorus (ghosts):
Your child is drawn to us, into our throng.

Shanty:
No!

Full chorus (ghosts):
This child is most welcome, soon one of us.

Mary Dee:
No, I tell you
you'll never get through, I'll never let you
no-one is stealing this child
I'm not afraid of ghosts that the past left behind.

Shanty:
Let her recover, then let me love her
until we run out of time
and in the future
I will promise to be the man she had in mind.

Nurse:
Be still, be calm, your child is safe.

Mary Dee:
Do we live in a world with an uncertain future
where a man is unsure of his fate
will we come to our senses, be fair to each other
can we turn it around before it's too late
do I know that we have the answer
yes, I know now we are together
so we must bear in mind that the pages are turning
and the sand will run out of the glass
in the heat of the battle
we will drive out the demons
and we'll carry the day, for we must save the child.

Mary Dee and Nurse:
(ah)

Mary Dee and Shanty:
We have come to our senses
we are part of each other
and we'll carry the day, for we must save the child.

Chorus:
Do you know that you have the answer?

Mary Dee and Shanty:
Yes, we know now.

Chorus:
We know now.

Mary Dee and Shanty:
We know now
we are together.
