The Faces - Stay With Me - Live 1972





"Stay with Me", written by Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, was first recorded by their band Faces for the 1971 album A Nod Is As Good As a Wink... to a Blind Horse. The song has also appeared on various Faces compilations and on albums by both songwriters.


The lyrics describe a woman named Rita with "red lips, hair and fingernails" he "found... down on the floor"; the singer proposes a one-night stand on the condition that she must be gone when he wakes up.







Lyrics


In the mornin' don't say you love me

'Cause I'll only kick you out of the door

I know your name is Rita 'cause your perfume's smellin' sweeter

Since when I saw you down on the floor.


You won't need to much persuadin'

I don't mean to sound degradin'

But with a face like that you got nothin' to laugh about.

Red lips, hair and fingernails

I hear you're a mean old Jezebel

Lets go up stairs and read my Tarot cards


Stay with me, stay with me

For tonight you'd better stay with me

Stay with me, stay with me

For tonight you'd better stay with me


So, in the mornin', please don't say you love me

'Cause you know I'll only kick you out the door

Yeah, I'll pay your cab fare home, you can even use my best cologne

Just don't be here in the mornin' when I wake up


Stay with me, stay with me

For tonight you're gonna stay with me

Sit down, get up, get out.


Stay with me, stay with me

For tonight you're gonna stay with me

Hey what's your name again?

Get out.

Get yourself home

Slow down a bit
