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

Stay lady stay
Stay while the night is still ahead
Stay lady stay
Heaven's fills our head

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

Stay lady stay
Stay with your man a while
Till the break of day
Then you're gonna see him smile

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

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 over you?

Lay lady lay
Lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay
We're gonna build the whole night ahead

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

Lay lady lay
Lay lady lay
Lay lady lay
Lay lady lay
Lay lady lay

    General CommentThis cover is so weird because you wouldn't expect it to fit on the album, but it really does.
