Story Behind The Song
Years ago, I worked for a small company in South West London that manufactured studio audio mixing desks. There were 12 employees, including the owner. I worked with 3 guys, assembling the mixers, there were 4 women soldering the components into the printed circuit boards, a designer, a tester, and a very attractive young secretary who worked for the boss. She had to walk through the factory to get to her office, and the rest is in the song.
One of my favorite parts in this recording is at 1:54. The lyric says, "Her work ain't finished at a quarter to five...", and Rachael sings a harmony that sounds like a factory whistle blowing, letting the workers know it's time to quit for the day.   :-)
Also, for all you trivia fans, it's in good company with a relatively short list of songs where the title is only sung once, as the very last line in the song.
Here's some of my favorites from the list: Virginia Plain - Roxy Music, Up The Junction - Squeeze, Just Like Heaven - The Cure, Greetings To The New Brunette - Billy Bragg, Nameless, Faceless - Courtney Barnett.
And... it doesn't have a chorus or a bridge, yet I think it still holds its own, but then I would, wouldn't I.  ;-)

She works hard at her desk all day  
She ain't got time to look towards her holiday  
The office is tidy and her mind is clean  
As she flicks through pages of her magazine  
She stirs her coffee with meticulous care  
Wears a lipstick smile as she combs her hair  

Her boss is late; it's a quarter to ten  
She says "Good Morning, sir", picks up a paper and pen  
He's had a hard night with a business gent  
And his expense account has nearly all been spent  
She takes down a letter - types out a receipt  
His figures don't tally but she must be discreet  

She wears knee length dresses and sensible shoes  
‘Cause after all she's got her reputation to lose  
The women from the factory talk behind her back  
Her good looks and beauty they sadly lack  
But she knows it and she shows it when she passes them by  
She's a modern girl. Holds her head up high  

Her work ain't finished at a quarter to five  
She's gotta catch the post and phone the boss's wife  
As she leaves he passes her her monthly cheque  
She gets the 88 red bus to Tooting Bec  
When she gets home she's got to make Terry's tea  
She's a sensible suburban secretary
