    Find out how the lyrics to Lady Madonna by the Beatles came to be written.

    The lyrics to the Beatles Lady Madonna were written by Paul McCartney and were inspired by a picture of an African women with a lady at her breast that he saw in a news magazine.

    Paul thought that it was marvellous that women could cope with all the difficulties of being a mother, such as lack of money, and coping with kids, and thought that it was a beautiful thing. The Madonna bit comes from the caption to the picture of the women which said 'Mountain Madonnaā€¯.

    The melody to Lady Madonna is the same as used by Humphrey Lyttelton in the jazz song Bad penny blues.
