Cassandra Wilson – Lay, Lady, Lay lyrics

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 I'll see them shine
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

Stay lady stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen, oh
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

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, lay lady lay, lay

I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night
Lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed
Lay, lay, lay, lay

Stay, stay, stay with your man awhile
Lay, layy, lay, let me see you make him smile
Let me see you make him smile
Lay lady lay
