  • 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
    With each other
    Silly girl

    Hold you're 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.
