Chelsea Morning Lyrics

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

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
And the streets are paved with passers-by
And pictures fly and papers lie
Just waiting to blow away

Woke up big this Chelsea morning and the first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey
And a bowl of oranges too
And the light poured in like butterscotch

And stuck to all my senses
Oh, won't you stay, we'll put on a day and we'll talk in present tenses
Now the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away
I'll bring you incense owls by night

By candle-light, by jewel-light
If only you will stay
Pretty baby, won't you
Wake up, it's the Chelsea morning
