    "Honey Pie" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, from their 1968 eponymous double album The Beatles (also known as "the White Album"). The song was written entirely by Paul McCartney, but is credited to Lennon–McCartney. The song is a direct homage to the British music hall style. It concerns a famed actress, called only by the term of endearment "Honey Pie", who becomes famous in the United States, and her old lover, who wishes for her to rejoin him in England. The premise – a humble admirer yearning for the return of his lover – is not unlike a typical music hall plot. In order to establish an appropriate, old-timey sound, 'crackles' were added to the third line, "Now she's hit the big time!", from a 78 rpm record.
