"Jenny Wren" as written by and 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

    General CommentStanza 1-Jenny Wren was young and naive and had a song in her heart.
    Stanza 2-Then she saw the cruelties of life and in the world and became disillusioned.
    Stanza 3-We should make an effort to be more compassionate so more young people won't become saddened by the world.

    General CommentIt is on the end of the song that I disagree with Bryia 026: The song doesn't say that she has to make an effort, but that the world will change, one day. This is a statement of hope in mankind.

    Song MeaningI found this info about the song on Wikipedia:

    Jenny Wren was written in Los Angeles, and is about a character of the same name from Charles Dickens' novel Our Mutual Friend. It also refers to an English bird known as the wren, which is reported to be McCartney's favourite. McCartney wrote the tune in the same sort of finger picking style found in "Blackbird", "Mother Nature's Son" (The Beatles) and "Calico Skies" (Flaming Pie).
