"Mrs. Lennon" was Yoko Ono's single from her Fly album (1971). The song was also featured in the film Imagine (not to be confused with the documentary about John Lennon's life).

Allmusic critic Ned Raggett called the song "reflective," stating that it provides "as wry but heartfelt a portrait of her position in the public eye as any."[1] Alex Chilton used the song's sad melody for his song "Holocaust."[1]

A cover version has been recorded by the band Donny Who Loved Bowling.
