Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed
Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed
'Til the break of day stay while you're still ahead
Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed

Why wait any longer for my world to begin
When I can have my cake and eat it too?
Why wait any longer for the one I love
When the one I love is you?

Stay lady stay, stay with a man a while
Until the break of day let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And I'm the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay lady stay, stay across the big brass bed
Stay lady stay, stay while you're still ahead
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And I'm the best thing that he's ever seen

Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed
Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed
Lay lady lay, lay across that big brass bed
