Lady Madonna - The Beatles 1968Saturday is the only day of the week not mentioned in the Beatles song “Lady Madonna.” According to the book Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now by Barry Miles, Paul McCartney recalled, “I was writing the words out to learn it for an American TV show and I realized I missed out Saturday; I did every other day of the week, but I missed out Saturday. So I figured it must have been a real night out.”

The lyrics that mention the other six days are:
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…
Tuesday afternoon is never ending.
Wednesday morning papers didn’t come.
Thursday night your stockings needed mending
, see how they run

“Lady Madonna” was released as a single in March 1968. It was written by Paul McCartney with a minor contribution from John Lennon (credited to Lennon/McCartney).
