Do It Now is the twelfth track on Egypt Station, Paul McCartney 's 17th solo studio album.

Do It Now is an expression my dad used to say. It's funny, you know, as you get older you remember things that your parents or maybe teachers or friends said, and if there's a catchphrase. And my dad's big catchphrase was 'Do it now.' You know, you'd sort of say, 'No, well, I'll do it later,' and he'd say, 'No, do it now.'

And he used to say 'DIN', so that was his particular little catchphrase. And I always thought, DIN, that's a great name for a record label. Din.

Anyway, this has always been in my mind, this 'Do it now' thing. So I was looking for an idea to write this song about, so then I started off, OK, I'm on a journey, I've been invited to go somewhere, so if I'm going in my imagination somewhere, and the idea is that if I don't do it now, I may never get to this place.

Basically it's a song, an imaginary journey suggested by the fact that my dad would have said, 'Go on that journey now, don't leave it till it's too late.' So there it is. Do it now.

Blast it all, McCartney, would you quit making me cry?

This song describes the time in my life when I moved away from home (590 miles) for a job. I answered the invitation/job offer. Oh, and the rest of the song. I can't write the rest or I'll start crying all over this keyboard. You all get the picture.
