Woke up big this Chelsea morning and the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window
And the traffic wrote the words
It came ringing up like Christmas bells

And rapping up like pipes and drums
Oh, won't you stay, we'll put on a day and we'll wear it till the night comes
Woke up big this Chelsea morning and the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains

And a rainbow on my wall
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you
Crimson, crystal peaks to beckon
Oh, won't you stay, we'll put on a day, there's a side-show every second
