"Lay Lady Lay" as written by and Even Johansen....
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colours you have in your mind
I'll show them to you and you'll 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 me smile

Your clothes are dirty but your hands are clean
And I'm the best thing that you've 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 I'm standing in front of you

Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while

You long to see me in the morning light
You long to reach for me in the night

Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead
So maybe I'll stay when the night is still ahead
Stay lady stay, stay while the night is still ahead
So maybe I'll stay when the night is still ahead
