Lady Madonna (Takes 3 and 4)
Author: Paul McCartney; Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

(take 3 for the basic track of piano and drums with overdubs of guitar, bass, vocals and more drums,
and take 4 for overdubs, particularly saxes)
Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money? When you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was Heaven sent?
Friday night arrives without a suitcase
Sunday morning creep in like a nun
Monday's child has learned to tie his bootlace
See how they run

Lady Madonna, baby at your breast
Wonders how you manage to feed the rest

See how they run

Lady Madonna, lying on the bed
Listen to the music playing in your head

See how they run

Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet

[Lady Madonna.]
