    The lyrics may not be up to it, but this is a very good song 
    musically, with different key areas, rythm changes and a good
    melody. John used to be sarcastic with this kind of songs and
    called them Paul's "granny music", but this song, which has a
    certain "charleston" air, is almost as good as HONEY PIE (the
    latter with a better arrangement from George Martin). 
    It is easier to play those syncopated notes on a piano than a 
    guitar, but with a slow approach and a little practice anyone 
    can master it.

   



    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.
