Beatles Album: The Beatles AKA The White Album : Track 9
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The lyrics to the Martha my dear song were written by Paul McCartney and the name inspired by his dog. The song is yet another one written about Paul's love for Jane Asher. The song is basically asking Martha (Jane) to come back to him and get married, after he had yet again cheated on her.
At this time Paul had met Linda McCartney, and this period signifies the last of many songs that Paul wrote for Jane.
