"Stay" as written by and Jason Aldine/weaver Williams....
People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play, just a little bit longer

Now the promoter don't mind
And the union don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song

Oh won't you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please please please, say you will
Say you will

Oh won't you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh please please please stay
Just a little bit more

I bet promoters don't mind
And the roadies don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave this all behind
Singing one more song

    General CommentJB wrote the Load Out. Stay is an old song from the early 60's by Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs. Jackson changed it up a bit and does it much better.

    General Commentthis song is amazing... i love the chorus. Frankie valli and the four seasons might have done it better though...

    General CommentI thought JB worte The Load Out and some other dude wrote Stay. Anyway, the is the quintessential rode song. He wants people to know that he loves performing songs and doing shows, but it's all the other behind-the-scenes stuff that is so monatonous and hard to cope with.

    General CommentAlso, correct me if I'm worng, on Stay, the second background singer solo, after the woman, is David Lyndley. His voice is so funny, but the crowd seems to love it.

    General CommentResponding to Fbplyr67. Right, and I think the "Stay" part of the song which JB re-wrote is just magic! Genius on his part to recognize how well that song would work in combo with the Load Out. My internet music service occasionally plays the "Stay" part only. So disappointed, because the combo song is one of my all-time favorites!
