Her Majesty

"Her Majesty" is a quick and off-the-cuff song by McCartney that comes at the end of side two on Abbey Road. The fascinating Beatles fact is that it was originally intended to go immediately before "Polythene Pam," although McCartney changed his mind. If one listens to the bass note that abruptly ends the song, one realizes that it fits perfectly with the bass notes that introduce Polythene Pam."

McCartney recorded the song alone at Abbey Road Studios on July 2, 1969. He plays acoustic guitar and sings the vocal track.
