A generation after Judy Foster, Judy Collins inspired a couple named Bill and Hillary to name their baby daughter after their favorite song.

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning / And the first thing that I heard,
Was a song outside my window / And the traffic wrote the words,
It came ringing up like christmas bells / And rapping up like pipes and drums.

Oh, won’t you stay we’ll put on the day / And we’ll wear it ’till the night comes.

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.

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today / And the streets are paved with passersby,
And pigeons fly, and papers lie / Waiting to blow away.

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 orangejuice too,
And the sun poured in like butterscotch / And stuck to all my senses.
Oh, wont you stay we’ll put on the day / And we’ll talk in present tenses.

When the cuntain closes / And the rainbow runs away,
I will bring you incense owls by night / By candlelight, by two jewellight
If only you will stay / Pretty baby won’t you.
Wake up, it is a Chelsea morning.
