Song facts

From Wikipedia:

Little Woman Love” is a Wings song released as a B-side to the single “Mary Had a Little Lamb” on 12 May 1972.

History

It was composed by Paul McCartney in 1970 and recorded during the Ram sessions but left off the album, then released as a single, although, in keeping with McCartney’s practice at the time, the composition was officially credited to Paul and Linda McCartney.

Reception and charts

While “Mary Had a Little Lamb” was dismissed by the critics, it climbed to the Top 10 in the United Kingdom. In the United States, however, radio stations preferred to play “Little Woman Love” more frequently. As a result, the picture sleeve for “Mary Had a Little Lamb” was revised by Apple Records to have a separate listing for the flip side, as shown. However, the single only reached number 28 in the US.

Release

Little Woman Love” was never released on an album until 1993, when it was included as a bonus track to Wild Life in The Paul McCartney Collection. It was included on the Special and Deluxe editions of the 2012 remaster of Ram.

Lyrics

I got a little woman I can really love,
My woman fit me like a little glove.
You know I'll always love
My little woman love.

I take her home most ev'ry night,
My woman love to hold me tight.
You know I feel alright
My little woman mine.

Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh yeah, oh yeah,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

I take her home most ev'ry night,
My woman love to hold me tight.
You know I feel alright,
My little woman mine.
