Beatles songs, Martha My Dear

Martha My Dear

(John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Albums in which the song is present

   1968 - The Beatles (White Album)

PAUL 1968: 'You see, I just start singing some words with a tune, you know what I mean.
Mainly I'm just doing a tune and then some words come into my head, you know.
And these happened to be 'Martha My Dear, though I spend my days in conversation.' So you can read anything you like into it, but really it's just a song.
It's me singing to my dog.' (laughs)

PAUL circa-1994: 'When I taught myself piano I liked to see how far I could go, and this (song) started off as a piece you'd learn as a piano lesson.
It's quite hard for me to play, It's a two-handed thing, like a little set piece.
Then when I was blocking out words – you just mouth out sounds and some things come – I found the words 'Martha my dear.' So I made up another fantasy song… I mean, I'm not really speaking to Martha, it's a communication of some sort or affection, but in a slightly abstract way – 'You silly girl, look what you've done…' Whereas it would appear to anybody else to be a song to a girl called Martha, it's actually a dog, and our relationship was platonic, believe me.'

Martha my dear though I spend my days in conversation
Please
Remember me Martha my love
Don't forget me Martha my dear

Hold your head up you silly girl look what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl

Take a good look around you
Take a good look you're bound to see
That you and me were meant to be for each other
Silly girl

Hold your hand out you silly girl see what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl

Martha my dear you have always been my inspiration
Please
Be good to me Martha my love
Don't forget me Martha my dear
