  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 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

  Pa pa pa pa...
  See how they run

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

  Tuesday afternoon is never ending
  Wednesday morning papers didn't come

  Thursday night you stocking needed mending
  See how they run

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

I understand it may be difficult for many people, but I'd like you all to understand that the most significative instrument in this song is the piano and usually you can'do the same with a guitar.Well, I try sometimes and I'm afraid that many of my tabs simply are not understood for that reason.
