Temporary Secretary is a song by Paul McCartney, featured on his McCartney II album (1980).

Along with the ten-minute Secret Friend as it's B-side, it was released as a UK only 12" single. A 7" Single exists only as a demo for radio stations. It exemplifies both the whimsical nature of the album and McCartney's use of synthesizers and other electronics in the creation of the album.

Lines such as "Mr Marks could you send her quick?" are a reference to the Alfred Marks employment agency, a national business specialising in secretaries and other office staff.

A cover version has been recorded by the band Donny Who Loved Bowling.
