Beatles song

Has anyone heard the Beatles song called "Julia"? Ahhh, I just love it. It's so beautiful. We listen to it all the time when we're playing on the floor in Julia's room. It still gets me every time. But it's funny now that she recognizes her name, she sort of looks at the stereo like "Who is calling me?"
Anyway, I was just reading that it was written by John Lennon, for his mom, Julia. He recorded this by himself. He did it completely live with an acoustic guitar and occasional overdubs on the vocals. It is the only song he did completely on his own during his time with The Beatles.
Check out the sweet lyrics:

Half of what I say is meaningless
But I say it just to reach you, Julia

Julia, Julia, oceanchild calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia, seashell eyes, windy smile, calls me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering, glimmering
In the sun

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia

When I cannot sing my heart
I can only speak my mind, Julia

Julia, sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me
So I sing a song of love, Julia
Hum hum hum hum... calls me
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia
