This would make sense because a muse cannot "remember me" however I'm sure a dog could but than again there are some clear lyrics that make sense as to refer to pauls muse. "Hold your head up, you silly girl- Look what you've done. Paul himself confirms this in this quote; "Whereas it would appear to anybody else to be a song to a girl called Martha, it's actually a dog, and our relationship was platonic, believe me."Paul of course wrote another song about one of his animals "Jet", his horse.
I wonder why two songs George poured out his heart and soul for he would not include in his book.I am a real animal lover, so this song makes me happy! It is directed at Jane Asher, whom Paul believed he was meant for, even though at the time he was dating Linda Eastman. "Martha my dear, though I spend my days in conversation please remember me.Martha my love, don't forget me." and also, "Take a good look you're bound to see, that you and me, were meant to be."My opinion is that the song flips between paul singing about his muse and his dog (martha). It is adorable to think of Paul sitting at the piano with his dog lying at his feet while he is singing to her.If he was able to forgive and forget Clapton and moved easily from Pattie.George Harrison was known for carrying grudges, but did not begrudge Eric or Pattie. He seemingly still had a grudge The thing with I Need You that people don't realize is, George was also dating Joey Heatherton at the same time.
