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'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 him smile
His clothes are dirty but his, his hands are clean
And you're 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.
