LyricsEdit

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colors you have in your mind
I show them to you and you see them shine

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay
stay with your man a while
Until the break of day
let me see you make him smile

His clothes are dirty but his, his hands are clean
And you are the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay lady stay
stay with your man a while

Why wait any longer for the world to begin
you can have your cake and eat it, too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
when he's standing in front of you

Lay lady lay
lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay
stay while the night is still ahead

I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night

Stay lady stay
stay while the night is still ahead
