  • also Melanie Safka on the album Candles in the Rain sings “Lay down, Lay it down, Lay it all down..”
    I tend to use the “ley of the land” which employs an Anglo Saxon term meaning a cleared stretch of land or a clearing, and is also the term used for ancient and as yet unexplained alignments on the landscape in the western part of Europe

  • Lionel: Intransitive lay shows up quite often in song titles and lyrics, as befits the informal register. Bob Dylan’s ‘Lay, Lady, Lay’ is perhaps the best known example.

  • Stan:

    I’ll write a lay,
    (But not today),
    If “lie” and “lay”
    Would go away
