Lady Madonna - Joan Osborne

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

Who find the money
When you pay the rent?
Did you think 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 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.

Tuesday afternoon is neverending.
Wednesday morning papers didn't come.
Thursday night your stockings needed mending.

See how they run.

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