    Jenny Wren — Paul McCartney
    Like so many girls, Jenny Wren could sing
    But a broken heart took her soul away

    Like the other girls, Jenny Wren took wing
    She could see the world, and it's foolish ways

    How we spend our days, casting love aside
    Loosing site of life day by day

    She saw poverty, breaking all the home
    Wounded warriors took her song away

    But the day will come, Jenny Wren will sing
    When this broken world mends its foolish ways

    Now we spend our days catching up on life
    All because of you, Jenny Wren

    «Jenny Wren» was written in Los Angeles, and is about a character of the same name from Charles Dickens' 1865 novel «Our Mutual Friend». It also refers to a bird known as the wren, which is reported to be McCartney's favourite.
    The word wren comes from the Middle English word wrenne meaning little tail. Many refer to the bird by giving it a feminine gender, calling it Jenny Wren and remarking on how sweetly “she” sings.
