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".
