John alluded to her indirectly in "Julia," a song dedicated to his mother, with the lyrics: "Ocean child calls me, so I sing a song of love" (The kanji -mZq ("Yoko") means "ocean child").

"'Let's put it out after Christmas and really do the thing right,' Geffen told Lennon and Ono. 'Take out an ad.'
"'An ad!' Lennon exclaimed to Yoko. 'Listen to this, Mother, you're gonna get an ad!'" no longer exists
