He apparently sang Let It Be to Nancy during one of their first holidays together in Morocco three years ago.
The second song was picked because it is American heiress Nancy’s favourite and contains the lyric: 'You gave me loving in the palm of my hand.'

Deliveries: Wedding preparations at Paul McCartney's house in St Johns Wood
Moving day: Temporary furniture is delivered to the north London home of former Beatle Paul McCartney
Reception: A fridge is loaded with champagne for the wedding
Two van loads of flowers, including pastel coloured roses and white hydrangeas, were delivered and bottles of champagne could be seen in a fridge next to the marquee, while more vans delivered furniture including around 100 steel chairs and ten drinks tables with mirrored glass surfaces.
The proceedings are in stark contrast to the £1.5 million Sir Paul spent on his wedding to Heather Mills in 2003 in front of 300 guests at Castle Leslie in Ireland.
That was followed by an elaborate reception which included a vegetarian banquet.
Seating arrangements: Chairs are delivered for the guests
Musical chairs: Seating for the reception is delivered to the house
Fresh as a daisy: Flowers are ready to be placed at the receptionThen, Sir Paul was reported to have spent tens of thousands of pounds on 300 bottles of vintage Cristal and Laurent Perrier, costing £180 a time.
But yesterday, fridges were being loaded with a far cheaper option – non-vintage Dumangin Grande Reserve champagne costing £26.50 a bottle.
The brand is little-known in the UK but was described by one critic last year as 'delicious, rare and delectable' and 'good value for money'
The venue: Marylebone Town Hall in London where Paul McCartney will married Nancy Shevell earlier todayWorkmen carrying tools including a spirit level arrived at the property in a van from the firm Momart, which specialises in transporting fine art. One said they had been asked to hang paintings, including works by Picasso and some of Sir Paul's own work.
After the celebrations the newlyweds are expected to fly to America to mark their nuptials with a second gathering at the Hamptons, the exclusive seaside enclave two hours from New York where they both own homes.
The move mirrors Sir Paul's wedding to Linda in 1969 when they flew to New York to visit her family.
Miss Shevell, a family friend of Sir Paul and Linda, is vice president of her family's transport firm and has a 19-year-old son, Arlen, from her 24-year marriage to first husband Bruce Blakeman.
