Top of the charts in '69.


#1.
G7
Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning,
 
and the first thing that I heard.
      C               G
Was a song outside my window, 
        C                 G
and the traffic wrote the words.
        C               G
It came ringing up like Christmas bells, 
    C               D11
and rapping up like pipes and drums.
G
Oh, won't you stay?

We'll put on the day.
          C                       G
And we'll wear it 'till the night comes.


#2.***(Chords same as #1.)


Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, 

and the first thing that I saw.

Was the sun through yellow curtains,
 
and a rainbow on the 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.


CHORUS:1.

C               G          D11           G
Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today,
        C                      GMaj7
And the streets are paved with passersby
    C
And pigeons fly,

And papers lie,
                 D7sus.   G
Waiting to blow away.


#3.(Chords same as #1).


Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning,

and the first thing that I knew,

There was milk and toast and honey,

and a bowl of oranges, too,

And the sun poured in like butterscotch,
 
and stuck to all my senses,

Oh, won't you stay?

We'll put on the day,

And we'll talk in present tenses.


CHORUS:2.***(Chords are same as Chorus#1)***


When the curtain closes,
 
and the rainbow runs away.

I will bring you incense owls by night,

By candlelight, by jewel-light,

If only you will stay,

Pretty baby, won't you,

Wake up, it's a Chelsea morning....
