Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet?
Who will find the money when you pay the rent?
Did you know that money was Heaven sent?

Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creeping like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlegs
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest?
See how they run

Well, Lady Madonna you're lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your pretty little head

Tuesday afternoon is never ending
Wednesday morning papers didn't come
Thursday night you stocking needed mending
See how they run

Well, Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonders how you manage to make ends meet?
