Take a letter, miss Jones quote 
I regret to inform you, 
That owing to circumstances 
Quite beyond our control 
It's a premature retirement 
For those surplus to requirement 
I'm afraid it's a sign of the times, miss Jones

An unfortunate sign of the times 
Take a letter, miss Jones, 
Due to the world situation 
The shrinking pound, the global slump 
And the price of oil 

I'm afraid we must fire you 
We no longer require you 
It's just another 
Sign of the times, miss Jones, 
A most miserable sign of the times 

Take a letter miss Jones
My dear miss Jones, we'd like to thank you 
Many years of splendid service 
Etcetera blah blah blah 
You've been a perfect poppet 
Yes that's right miss Jones, you've got it 
It's just another sign of the times, 
Miss Jones, it's 
Just another sign of the 

Dry your eyes, miss Jones 
It's not as bad as it seems you 
Get used to being idle 
In a year or two 
Unemployment's such a pleasure 
These days, we call it leisure 
It's just another sign of the times, 
Miss Jones, it's 
Just another sign of the times 

There's a young man on the street, miss Jones 
He's walkin' round in circles, 
He's old before his time 
But still too young to know 
Don't look at him, don't cry though 
This living on the giro 
Is only a sign of the times, 
Miss Jones, it's 
Just another sign of the 

Miss Jones, 
It's just another sign of the times
