"Put It There" is a 1990 single from Paul McCartney's 1989 album, Flowers in the Dirt. The song reached number 32 on the UK singles chart.[1][2] The song's lyrics are based around an expression of friendship that McCartney learned from his father, "Put it there [handshake] if it weighs a ton."

Like other songs from Flowers in the Dirt, despite the song's chart modest chart success, to date it has not been included on any McCartney compilation album.

The 7" single also included a Wings song, "Mama's Little Girl", that had been originally recorded in 1972 but had been remixed and produced in its current version in 1987 by McCartney and Chris Thomas. The 12" single included a second Wings song, "Same Time Next Year", which had been recorded on 5 and 6 May 1978 at RAK Studios,[3] as a possible theme for the movie of the same name that had also been remixed and produced in 1987 by McCartney and Thomas.
