Paul McCartney & Wings - Jet
Jet, I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told 'em that you were gonna be marrying soon
And Jet, I thought the only lonely place was on the moon
Jet, was your father as bold as a Sergeant Major?
Oh, how come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet?
And Jet, I thought the Major was a Lady Suffragette
"Jet" is a song from Paul McCartney and Wings' Band on the Run album. The song peaked at #7 in both the UK and U.S. charts on March 30, 1974. Along with "Helen Wheels" and "Junior's Farm", it is another McCartney song where his primary inspiration for composing the song arose in daily life. It was recorded mainly at EMI's studio in Lagos, Nigeria. When first released, the single's B-side was "Mamunia", another track from Band on the Run. However, it was soon replaced with "Let Me Roll It". The song has been said to be about McCartney's Labrador Retriever, named "Jet". The Australian rock band Jet gets their name from this song.
