# Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I heard

0:06:380:06:43

# Was a song outside my window

0:06:430:06:46

# The traffic wrote the words

0:06:460:06:48

# It came a-ringin' up like Christmas bells

0:06:480:06:52

# Rapping up like pipes and drums

0:06:520:06:58

# Oh, won't you stay?

0:06:580:07:00

# We'll put on the day and we'll wear it till the night comes

0:07:000:07:09

# Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I saw

0:07:090:07:14

# Was the sun through yellow curtains

0:07:140:07:17

# And a rainbow on my wall

0:07:170:07:20

# Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you

0:07:200:07:23

# Crimson crystal beads to beckon

0:07:230:07:30

# Oh, won't you stay? We'll put on the day

0:07:300:07:33

# There's a sun show every second

0:07:330:07:39

# Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today

0:07:410:07:45

# And the streets are paved with passers-by

0:07:450:07:49

# Pigeons fly Papers lie waiting to blow away

0:07:490:07:59

# Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning and the first thing that I knew

0:08:050:08:10

# There was milk and toast and honey

0:08:100:08:12

# And a bowl of oranges too

0:08:120:08:15

# And the sun poured in like butterscotch

0:08:150:08:18

# Stuck to all my senses

0:08:180:08:25

# Oh, won't you stay? We'll put on the day

0:08:250:08:28

# And we'll talk in present tenses

0:08:280:08:32

# When the curtain closes

0:08:360:08:38

# And the rainbow runs away

0:08:380:08:41

# I will bring you incense owls by night

0:08:410:08:45

# By candlelight, by jewel-light

0:08:450:08:47

# If only you will stay

0:08:470:08:51

# Oh, pretty baby, won't you wake up?

# It's a Chelsea morning. #

All right. LAUGHTER

0:09:410:09:44

# She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

0:09:440:09:47

# I asked her her name and in a dark-brown voice she said, "Lola"

# But when she squeezed me tight, she nearly broke my spine, oh, my Lola

0:10:090:10:14

# La-la-la-la Lola

0:10:140:10:17

# Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand

0:10:400:10:44

# I walked to the door

0:10:440:10:47

# I fell to the floor

0:10:470:10:50

# I got down on my knees

0:10:500:10:53

# I looked at her and she at me

0:10:530:10:56

# And that's the way that I want it to stay

0:10:560:10:59

# I always want it to be that way for my Lola

0:10:590:11:04

# La-la-la-la Lola

0:11:040:11:07

# Girls will be boys and boys will be girls

0:11:090:11:13

# It's a mixed up, muddled up shook-up world, except my Lola

0:11:130:11:19

# La-la-la-la Lola

0:11:190:11:22

# I'd left home just the week before

0:11:220:11:25

# And I'd never, ever kissed a woman before

0:11:250:11:28

# Lola smiled and took me by the hand

0:11:280:11:31

# And said "Dear boy, I'm gonna make you a man"

0:11:310:11:35

# Well, I'm not the world's most masculine man

0:11:350:11:38

# But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man

0:11:380:11:41

# And so's Lola La-la-la-la Lola

0:11:410:11:47

# La-la-la-la Lola

0:11:470:11:50

# Lola, la-la-la-la Lola

-APPLAUSE

-Ah!

0:19:010:19:03

# When you belonged to no-one

0:19:030:19:06

# You didn't stand a chance, son

0:19:090:19:12

# If your pants were undone

0:19:150:19:19

# Cos you were bred for humanity

0:19:200:19:26

# And sold to society

0:19:260:19:31

# One day you'll wake up in the present day

0:19:310:19:37

# A million generations removed from expectations

0:19:370:19:42

# Of being who you really want to be

0:19:420:19:48

# Skating away

0:19:480:19:50

# Skating away

0:19:500:19:52

# Skating away on the thin ice of the new day

0:19:520:19:59

# Hey

0:20:000:20:03

# And as you push off from the shore

0:20:050:20:08

# Won't you turn your head once more?

0:20:080:20:11

# And make your peace with everyone

0:20:110:20:13

# For those who choose to stay

0:20:160:20:19

# Will live just one more day

0:20:190:20:22

# To do the things they should have done

0:20:220:20:24

# And as you cross the wilderness Spinning in your emptiness

0:20:260:20:31

# You feel you have to pray

0:20:310:20:33

# Looking for a sign that the universal mind

0:20:370:20:42

# Has written you into the passion play

0:20:420:20:46

# Skating away

0:20:480:20:50

# Skating away

0:20:500:20:53

# Skating away on the thin ice of the new day

0:20:530:20:59

# Hey

0:21:010:21:04

# And as you cross the circle line

0:21:040:21:08

# Well, the ice wall creaks behind

0:21:080:21:11

# You're a rabbit on the run

0:21:110:21:13

# And as the silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye

0:21:160:21:22

# Shining in the setting sun

0:21:220:21:24

# Well, do you ever get the feeling

0:21:250:21:28

# That the story's too damn real and in the present tense?

0:21:280:21:33

# Or that everybody's on the stage

0:21:370:21:40

# And it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience?

0:21:400:21:47

# Skating away

-Not bad for a studio set, is it?

# That's how it ought to be

0:44:130:44:15

# "I'll take you," says the ferryman

0:44:440:44:46

# But if I should close my eyes and fall asleep before we land

0:44:460:44:52

# You must take these oars

0:44:520:44:53

# And for ever more

0:44:530:44:54

# Be at my command. #

0:44:560:44:58

# I know I said I loved you But I'm thinking I was wrong

0:45:280:45:32

# I'm the first to admit

0:45:320:45:33

# That I'm still pretty young

0:45:330:45:36

# And I never meant to hurt you

0:45:360:45:38

# When I wrote you ten love songs

0:45:380:45:40

# But a guy that I could never get

0:45:430:45:45

# His girlfriend was pretty fit

0:45:450:45:46

# And everyone who knew her loved her so

0:45:460:45:50

# And I made you leave her for me

0:45:500:45:52

# And now I'm feeling pretty mean

0:45:520:45:54

# But my mind has fucked me over

0:45:540:45:56

# More times than any man could ever know

0:45:560:45:59

# Maybe I should give up, give in

0:46:030:46:05

# Give up trying to be thin

0:46:060:46:08

# Give up and turn into my mother

0:46:100:46:12

# God knows, I love her

0:46:130:46:16

# But I'm sorry to whichever man

0:46:160:46:21

# Should meet my sorry state

0:46:210:46:25

# Watch my steady, lonesome gait

0:46:250:46:28

# And beware

0:46:280:46:30

# I will never love a man

0:46:330:46:35

# Cos love and pain go hand in hand

0:46:350:46:36

# And I can't do it again

0:46:360:46:41

# So we stayed up late one night

0:46:410:46:42

# To try and get our problems right

0:46:420:46:45

# But I couldn't get into his head

0:46:450:46:46

# Just what was going through my mind

0:46:460:46:49

# I think he knew where I was going

0:46:490:46:51

# He put Ryan Adams on

0:46:510:46:53

# I think he thinks it makes me weak

0:46:530:46:54

# It only ever makes me strong

0:46:540:46:56

# I've got this friend And he sounds just like him

0:46:560:46:59

# And he's the man I'd leave you for

0:46:590:47:02

# The man that I just adore like you

0:47:020:47:04

# The same man, he turns to me Says "I've got to tell you how I feel

0:47:070:47:11

# "If God could make the perfect girl for me, it would be you"

0:47:110:47:15

# And my god told me not tell about how much do you love your fella

0:47:150:47:19

# I don't know, more every day

0:47:190:47:22

# Not in this new romantic way

0:47:230:47:27

# I'll always be your first love

0:47:290:47:35

# You'll always be my first love

0:47:370:47:43

# But I'm sorry to whichever man

0:47:430:47:49

# Should meet my sorry state

0:47:490:47:53

# Watch my steady, lonesome gait and beware

0:47:530:48:00

# I will never love a man

0:48:010:48:04

# Cos love and pain go hand in hand

0:48:040:48:05

# And I can't do it again

0:48:050:48:09

# I will never love a man cos I could never hurt a man

0:48:090:48:13

# Not in this new romantic way. #

0:48:130:48:19

APPLAUSE

0:48:230:48:26

# Eight miles high and when you touch down

0:48:260:48:34

# You'll find that it's stranger than known

0:48:340:48:39

# Signs in the street that say where you're going

0:48:420:48:48

# Are somewhere just being their own

0:48:500:48:56

# Round the squares

0:50:070:50:10

# Huddled in storms

0:50:110:50:14

# Some laughing

0:50:150:50:17

# Some just shapeless forms

0:50:170:50:20

# Sidewalk scenes

0:50:220:50:25

# And black limousines

0:50:260:50:29

# Some living

0:50:300:50:32

# Some standing alone

0:50:320:50:37

APPLAUSE

0:52:080:52:11

# Took a bite out of a mountain range

0:52:120:52:15

# Let's go, wanna go

0:52:180:52:22

# All the way to the horizon

0:52:220:52:25

0:53:340:53:38

# King of the jungle, so

0:53:380:53:41
