Who finds the money when you pay the rent?

Did you think that money was heaven sent?

See how they run!


Lady Madonna, baby at your breast.

Wonders how you manage to feed the rest.

Lady Madonna lying on the bed.

Listen to the music playing in your head.

Tuesday afternoon is never-ending.

Wednesday morning papers to calm.

Thursday night your stockings needed mending.

See how they run!


Lady Madonna, children at your feet.

Wonder how you manage to make ends meet.


A     Bm     Cdim   E7  A  [2x]
