About this song

The title Martha My Dear was inspired by McCartney's Old English Sheepdog, also named Martha. McCartney has said that the song itself is probably about his longtime love interest Jane Asher. Asher broke off their engagement in mid-1968. McCartney chides her with the lyrics in the song "...when you find yourself in the thick of it, help yourself to a bit of what is all around you..." Asher inspired many of McCartney's songs, including "Here, There, and Everywhere", "For No One" and "We Can Work It Out".
