It came ringing up Like Christmas bells Rapping up like pipes and drums Oh, won't you stay We'll put on the day And we'll wear it Til the night comes I woke up, it was a 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 beads to beckon Oh, won't you stay We'll put on the day There's a sun show every second Now the curtain opens On a portrait of today And the streets Are paved with passersby Pigeons fly and papers lie Waiting to blow away Ooh, ooh, ooh I woke up It was a Chelsea morning 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 Stuck to all my senses Ooh, won't you stay We'll put on the day And we'll talk in present tenses When the curtain closes And the rainbow runs away I will bring you Incense owls by night By jewel light By candlelight If only you will stay Oh. my darling Won't you wake up It's a Chelsea morning
