"My Man" is a 1982 single by Yoko Ono from the album It's Alright (I See Rainbows) in a new wave/calypso style. "Let the Tears Dry" appeared on the B-side. The song was originally written in 1980.
Yoko wrote about the song when it was included on her 1992 boxset Onobox:
MY MAN was originally called MY PAPA because I referred to John as “Papa” when I spoke about him to my Japanese speaking friends, just as John started to sometimes call me “Mother” after Sean was born. John thought I should not call the song MY PAPA because there was already a song called that. “What about MY OLD MAN? ” he said. That didn’t seem quite right. We laughed. I had kept the song on the backburner and changed it to MY MAN at the time of the recording.— Yoko Ono, "ONOBOX by Yoko Ono".
