Why don't you know you got nothing to prove
It's all in your eyes and the way that you move
Forget this dance, let's go upstairs!

[Bm] You can have love, But you might [G]loose it.[C/G] [G]
[Bm] Why run any longer[C] When you're running in pl[G]ace?
[Bm] You can have the truth but you've got to [D]choose it.
Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while.
'til the break of day, Let me see you make him smile.
I long to see you in the morning light.
I long to hold you In the night.
Stay lady stay, stay with your man a while.
(instrumental verse)
Lay lady lay, Lay across my big brass bed.
