"Oh Yoko!" is a 1971 song, written and performed by John Lennon, that can be found on his album Imagine and the greatest hits compilation Working Class Hero: The Definitive Lennon.

The song was written about his wife Yoko Ono, and features Nicky Hopkins on piano and co-producer Phil Spector on harmony vocal. Lennon plays harmonica for the first time on a solo recording (since The Beatles' "Rocky Raccoon"), and it would also be the last time he used the instrument in a released recording.


Lennon began writing the song in 1968 during the Beatles' visit to India, but wasn't fully completed until the sessions for Imagine three years later.[1]
