"She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" is a song written by Paul McCartney (although credited to Lennon-McCartney) and performed by The Beatles on their album Abbey Road. The subject of the song is a real life event. A fan named Diane Ashley found a ladder in McCartney's garden and used it to climb up to the bathroom window, which was slightly open. "I was the one who climbed up and got in," she says. Diane was surprised to have become the subject of a Beatles song. "I didn't believe it at first, because he'd hated it so much when we broke in. But then I suppose anything can inspire a song, can't it? I know that all his neighbours rang him when they saw we'd got in and I'm sure that gave rise to the lines, 'Sunday's on the phone to Monday/Tuesday's on the phone to me'."
