Another of Lennon's, this was inspired by two people. The first was a girl who was a fan in their Cavern Club days. She had a habit of eating polythene, and was known as Polythene Pat. The next was a girl named Stephanie, who dressed in a polythene bag, whom he met on the Isle of Guernsey. It seems that John spent the night with her in what was described as a near-orgy. These two experiences developed into Polythene Pam.
Well you should see Polythene Pam,
she's so good looking but she looks like a man
Well, you should see her in drag
dressed in a polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam,
yeah, yeah, yeah
Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt,
she's killer diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the news of the world
Yes you could say she was attractively built,
yeah, yeah, yeah
